Flying at an altitude of 600ft, the nine-minute show bought Hollywood glamour, Los Angeles, more than 5,000 miles away, from its West Midlands namesake, to mark the launch of a new streaming service, Paramount+.
The sensational show, by drone light show company SKYMAGIC, began thrillingly with the famous Mission: Impossible countdown.
The drones then painted the sky black with a gigantic, ominous image of Ghostface from the famous Scream movies, followed by a stunning replica of the Yellowstone Ranch and an intergalactic tour of Star Trek’s USS Enterprise.
Next, a trip to Bikini Bottom, with SpongeBob SquarePants engulfing the night himself, followed by Paw Patrol’s main canine character, Chase.
Halo’s hero, Master Chief, featured prominently in the dramatic exposition, alongside South Park’s famed Kenny.
The penultimate scene of the show featured the famous Paramount mountain and logo, as well as a QR code – which viewers could scan to get a seven-day free trial of the streaming service.
SKYMAGIC, which wowed the world with its 400-drone performance featuring a giant corgi, teacup and teapot, and the Queen’s handbag above Buckingham Palace, spent months planning the carefully choreographed performance, with a crew of just four.
SKYMAGIC Co-Founder and Director Mungo Denison said, “This show took months to polish due to the attention to detail needed to give an accurate portrayal of the various characters we portrayed.
“None of the characters were easy to create. Star Trek was difficult because it requires a lot of dynamic movement to create the sense of the iconic spaceship in hyperspace. It’s a huge image – it’s almost 200 meters wide .
“Star Trek obviously has a legion of die-hard fans, so getting it right and creating something that engages those who haven’t seen it before is as important as those who love it dearly.
“The sky is our biggest canvas, and the show, which ran alongside the music, began with Paramount’s famous logo, which is the widest of the screen at 200 yards wide and 120 yards tall. These are all iconic images.
“Paramount is a fantastic client to work for. This is a fun and iconic creation. Half the job is to capture the audience’s attention, because people know these wonderful characters so much.
“It’s a privilege to do things like SpongeBob Square Pants, putting it 200 meters in the sky. It’s the only time my kids have been remotely impressed with anything I do.
“We give the characters a sense of reality that we hope elicits this real emotional response.
“Animals like Chase, the dog from Paw Patrol, are great to design because they’re dynamic and you can get that dynamic movement.
“It all starts with a pencil and crayons and a piece of paper where we draw everything by hand. The last thing we do is overlay the color file. We have the capacity to produce 16 million colors.
“Leaving Buckingham Palace and all the pomp and circumstance and bringing Hollywood to Bromsgrove was fantastic. We lit up the night there.
Also at the show was the face of the new streaming service, Paramount Pete, who handed out popcorn, cotton candy and balloons to residents as they watched the mesmerizing spectacle.
Ahead of the show, Paramount+ unveiled its all-star promo, featuring a galaxy of Hollywood stars – including Uma Thurman, Jack Whitehall, Naomie Harris, Christina Ricci and Miranda Cosgrove.
The two-minute short, which was shot in the UK, follows the first-day story of an intern, nicknamed Paramount Pete, as he tries to get hundreds of coffee orders straight from the studios Paramount + for various superstars.
Paramount+, which is available now in the UK and Ireland, will include exclusive originals, plus blockbuster films from Paramount Pictures, and a wide selection of its most iconic shows – including HALO, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds, The First Lady, and kid favorites Kamp Koral: SpongeBob’s Under Years and PAW Patrol: The Movie.
