L.A. Drones has been working on Drone Swarm and Light Show technology before it had a name. We bring an unrivaled combination of onsite experience, technical knowledge and creative prowess.
Over the past four years, we have perfected the phases needed to execute major shows and campaigns – from creative pre-production & FAA logistics to onsite execution & viral content creation.
In 2020, we have integrated even newer technologies that have solved limitations and unlocked new creative possibilities, with longer flight times. more bright lighting schema, and robust software for creating custom animations.
We are now able to offer better pricing models, with revolutionary show creative and novel content campaigns that dramatically increase the overall reach of your show.
L.A. Drones has always had a large presence at CES, producing both aerial cinematography campaigns as well as FOUR, SIMULTANEOUS live technology driven activations w/ Intel, providing a lot of industry firsts and new technology demos. 1.
