The Brief

SKYMAGIC were tasked to deliver a visual spectacle for Qatar’s 46th National Day Week celebrations at Katara Cultural Village in Qatar, in the form of a drone show featuring a 300-strong fleet. Central to the shows narrative was the celebration of Qatar’s journey towards prosperity, from humble beginnings in a barren desert to a prosperous nation with the world’s third-highest GDP per capita.

The first time a live drone show had been performed in Qatar.

The Outcome

Our stunning drone show began with a suite of tightly choreographed transitions, showcasing symbolic images of Qatar and accompanied by traditional Arabic music. The formations began with a giant heart with the word Qatar”in Arabic, which morphed into a giant outline of Qatar. These were followed by an image of an Oryx, the national animal of Qatar, running across the night sky. Next was a formation that outlined a traditional wind tower and the modern torch tower, both of which symbolize prosperity.

The highlight of the drone show was a larger-than-life portrait of HH the Emir of Qatar and a magnificent flashing Qatar flag both captured by our fleet deployed at over 200m above the ground level and spanning a 360m-wide area.
