A red-lit stage. An amber-dusted sky. A roaring crowd of 100,000+ fans and a decibel meter of 110+ (dBs). This is the Life is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, the nation’s highest-grossing annual festival. It’s the type of event you have to experience to believe. And we helped a few million people do just that — creating a never-before-done cinematic experience for the festival’s watch-from-home live stream, aired on Twitch courtesy of Fortress’s incredible live streaming services. 

With impeccable sound and insane lighting, the festival created a three-day, otherworldly experience packed with an incredible list of talent: Billie Eilish, Green Day, Tame Impala, Megan Thee Stallion, and dozens more…

Starling Productions was honored to return as the festival’s drone aerial provider of choice for the fifth year. On its website, the festival notes, “…Life is Beautiful is more than just a festival, it’s a way of moving through the world” — a mission that perfectly aligns with Starling Productions.

For decades, we’ve been making stories with moving cameras in an evolving industry. And long before drones were widely accepted, we became the first company with a 24/7/365 FAA authorization to legally fly and film one of the most protected airspaces in the US — the famous Las Vegas Strip.

As a national leader and educator in aerial and drone cinematography, we’re one of the country’s most experienced drone video crews. With nearly 150,000 festival-goers bordering the Las Vegas strip, drone safety and precision flight paths were our top priority.
