At Celestial, we wanted to mark the UN Climate Change Conference (COP26) in a significant way, where we had the opportunity to use our solar powered drone fleet for good and create another impactful appeal, encouraging world leaders to take drastic action on climate change once and for all.

At the time, we were already working closely with The Eden Project to create some drone shows for a live audience on site. We knew they would make ideal partners for this film, as their mission is to create a movement that builds relationships between people and the natural world to demonstrate the power of working together for the benefit of all living things. We were thrilled when our suggestion to use our drones to create a film for COP26 really captured their imagination.

Volvo also loved the concept and came on board partway through the process as the official sponsors and the Eden Sessions music concerts, adding more weight behind the project.

The resultant one-off 90-second film, where nearly 300 drones depict the interconnectivity between humankind and the planet, is centred around the point of view of a visiting alien. In the film, the alien looks at humanity in disbelief as we continue to degrade the world around us, and by default, degrade ourselves. We hope that this film can play some small role in inspiring world leaders to take the necessary action that we’ve all been waiting for to save our planet.
