Lighting and Production Design


Avicii - Live In Concert, 2012

We can help you with:

    - Lighting rig design, plotting and CAD
    - Proposal-ready 3D rendering
    - Lighting and video integration
    - Supply RFQ and evaluation
    - Control system design and signal path
    - 3D pre-visualization
    - Cueing, focus and programming of lighting 


Video Design and Mapping


We strive for designs that are flexible and camera-friendly for broadcast and IMAG, and that complement projection or LED display systems well.

    - Projection mapping 2D and 3D structures
    - Pixel mapping LED and conventional fixtures as low-res video arrays
    - Lighting performers with projection rather than conventional light
    - Creating custom sound-reactive lighting and video triggers
    - Interactive lighting and video by MIDI or OSC multi-touch control
    - Programming media servers via Artnet/DMX or onboard control

Control Systems


control systemsJeremy and Graham are both fluent in MA1/MA2, Chamsys and Whole Hog programming environments. We regularly provide lighting consoles, media servers and Artnet distribution nodes to local and touring shows.

Our video projects are developed on Hippotizer and Arena 5 media servers and VJ controllers, as well as Madrix LED controllers. We are also fluent in Catalyst and Arkaos-based media server systems.
