Concept and Show Design
We like to start our working process in an early stage. Even before you exactly know what you want, let alone how. As a team-player we gladly discuss with you which goals you want to achieve, which needs you have, and what you want to communicate, so we can brainstorm about the way to get there. Our concepts are always tailor-made and offer creative and innovative solutions.
Everything starts from scratch: with an empty piece of paper and a pencil. From there on, we start to build the story for an unforgettable event.
We have a state-of-the-art studio in which we can take you through every step of the design process: with 3D-technology you can ‘fly’ through your event before it even takes place. Talk about of a cost-effective way of working! Whether you want us to create an opening show for your new headquarters, the launch of a new product, a complete festival or a small-scale staff party: we are able to build a complete concept for your event, and, as you’ll see further on, we also offer all kinds of support to execute it.
Lighting and Set Design
We grew up in theaters around the world. That means we understand the magic of creating experiences with the simplest of techniques. When programmed properly, a single spot could create a bigger impact than 200 hysterically moving lights. But we have also operated some of the biggest stadium shows imaginable. That is exactly what drives us: The experience and the emotion. Tell us your message, give us your story, and we will create the perfect atmosphere.
We have a fully equipped in-house studio to design a set that fits your needs. While designing we always let creativity take the lead, but also take in mind the choice of materials, location complexity, feasibility and budget. That is what we call a clever design.
To us, an event is a 3D experience. Concepts and designs can look really good on paper but the trick lies in the actual guest experience. Do they feel the concept?
That is where we come in. The guys in our video and content studio can work magic with your message. Whether it is upgrading your presentation, creating a video, producing beautiful soundscapes and music or stunning 3D animations: we promise they will surprise you with the outcome.
And since they are proper geeks, rest assure they are always on the lookout for new hip and happening concepts. You provide the message, we give it the nicest face to get it across.
Do you realize that your message may be very clear to you, but bringing it across is a whole different ballgame? Of course, the presenter is key, but did you ever notice how the attention of an audience drifts when there is a typo in the Powerpoint, when the audio in a video is too loud, or when the video contains a misuse of your corporate identity? Your audience’s complete attention is what you need!
While planning and executing your event we realize that our tools are only that. Tools. To create something bigger: an experience. When we combine the various disciplines at hand, we are always aware of the fact that they are your service providers, and nothing more. They are used to help you reach your goal. Some may worship these tools and try to put them in the spotlight, we realize that the spotlight needs to be on you.
Controls and Visualisation
All these plans and concepts may sound nice and all, but without the proper technology to support them it’s worth nothing. Indeed a lighting desk or media server is just a tool, but if it comes down to reliability we only depend on top-level equipment. Our control and visualization systems are always up-to-date and have the newest hardware to maximize performance and flexibility.
Since no design is worth a dime without proper execution behind the controls, we offer access to our international network of only the best lighting controllers. Our designers and operators have been working around the world and have had the best training and working experience to be an inspirational partner to you. We promise they are all just as passionate as we are!
Amsterdam is our origin, but we are used to traveling around the globe. Working abroad can sometimes bring extra challenges to a production, but as we’ve toured around for a while, we know how to deal with local parties and work in different time zones! Whether your event is in downtown New York, on an exotic Island, or you have a major show in the middle of the desert: we’ll be ready to go!
As we’ve strategically build our network in the world, we don’t necessarily need to take all the equipment on the road, but with good facilitating local partners, you can save costs and work on a sustainable future at the same time!
