"Sparked" short film: The dance between human and machine never looked quite like this

This 5-minute short film featuring quadrotors was produced in collaboration between the entertainment company Cirque du Soleil, researchers at ETH Zurich’s Flying Machine Arena, and their spin-off company Verity Studios. Everything you see is real — no CGI, wires, or speed-ups/slow-downs were used in the production of the film.

A great video showcasing the power of drones that never shows a drone, quite genius indeed!

 Pretty amazing. No CGI but definitely CGT, computer generated telemetry, in tandem with a MoCap(Motion Capture) system. Looking forward to seeing this kind of flight minus the MoCap in the not-too-distant future.

Wow !, ive seen Cirque a few times and always loved the choreography and themes. Never did i think they would be involved in something like this. It was very Cirque but still unique.

Great job from an unlikely collaboration.
