Production companies DroneShowSoftware and Basemotion have collaborated to stage a light show using flying drones, to get into the festive spirit.

The video above shows the performance, which saw drones transform into snowflakes, a Christmas tree and finally a moving reindeer, giving the impression of galloping across the sky.

DroneShowSoftware’s seasonal video was created in collaboration with BaseMotion, one of the most experienced Latvian graphical animation companies.

Armands Blumbergs of BaseMotion commented: “It’s our first drone show, but absolutely not our last. As our work is mostly contained within the digital realm, we would like to thank SPH Engineering for providing us with the opportunity to explore this exciting new medium.

“Drones can really perform some breathtaking tricks! It’s definitely time to bring drone shows into the spotlight.”
