Media with a Mission
Video — Audio — Interactive
You Us .
We see the world through your eyes.
We become stewards of your story. We learn who you are, and who your audience is. We join your team and share your goals.
Your vision is our vision.
Yes, we do special effects, immersive environments, augmented reality... and sometimes, actual smoke and mirrors!
We use every tool in the box. We’ve animated elephants and made ghost heads float in mid-air. But underneath the smoke and mirrors, every project stays on solid ground.
The best special effect is a good script.
We care about details. We dig deep. Facts are credibility, and we get them right, but facts without poetry have no life. Every story blends information and art.
We will help you find the perfect balance.
Learning is a full body exercise!
Join the dance in an immersive theater. Aim a real cannon and sink virtual ships. Role-play real-life scenarios with your friends. Record and remix a classic song.
Trust us, this will be fun!
