An LED-Covered Drone Traced This Neon Light-Graffiti Through the Sky

By Eric Limer on at

Light painting is awesome, whether you use your own two hands and a LED glowstick, or leave it up to a roomba-like robot. But production studio Fiction decided to take it up a notch by bring a makeshift UFO into the mix.

Like any good light painting, the photos are long exposures of a dancing LEDs. Except in this case, those LEDs were strapped to a DJI Phantom drone, or "aerial filming multi-rotor system", inspired by the UFO from Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Of course that wasn't all: it also took a little post-shoot Photoshopping to tease out the mirrored shapes we get in the final product.
