From the big pitch to the bigger picture, our multidisciplinary studio makes radical ideas real.
Working alongside Show Director / Designer / Operator Hugo Shiboski, we brought his concept render to reality with the construction of custom modular lighting towers. Designed for life on the road, and adaptable to a range of venue layouts, these brought energy to the show each night of the Far From Here Pt. 2 tour. Lighting frames fabricated by Matt Leonardo.
When challenged to design and produce Jim-E Stack’s debut LA and NY headline live shows, we jumped at the opportunity. The team’s challenge was to use color as the only building block. Avoiding traditional animations, we focused on simple color palettes, moody/flashy back lighting, and negative space. Our work culminated in a bicoastal tour running the live production and operation of his shows. Matt Leonardo assisted on lighting operation.
Digital design for Memmi's EP "Heartburn". Over the course of a year, we worked with the artist to develop a design language for his EP. To celebrate the release of his project, we designed an experimental lighting and sound setup at Glow in the Dirt to host a listening party.
We were approached by an up and coming film production studio out of Vancouver– Good Idea Studios. The group gave us their trust in making the website to host their portfolio. We worked with designer Lea Schwegler to make a cohesive digital design language.
What Day Is It is a 15-minute live performance film for electro-pop trio Moontower, featuring unreleased songs from their forthcoming EP. Each song's visual identity is ever-evolving, showing viewers the ambiguity of dusk and dawn, and leaving them feeling lost in time.
The City of Culver City commissioned media artist Nate Mohler to create a dynamic artwork for Culver City City Hall Courtyard. Culver Current is made with 1,011,712 pixels, 494 LED panels, 82 power supplies, 27 receiving cards, stands on a 9-foot steel frame, and is wrapped in 8 custom textured and thermoformed sheets of Corian.
Developed a modular stage to be shipped into wilderness locations. Stage design included an integrated monitor system for performers as well as a wireless DMX lighting system tied into the DJ deck to run without the need of a dedicated lighting operator. Coordinated logistics for the production team to manage this set as it traveled.
