HARMONIOUS, $$$ and TIME MANAGEMENT

Do you work in the Event industry?  Then you know that you cannot produce events by yourself.  Just between the lighting, sound, video production, staging design and overall production design elements – it’s all too much to handle alone.   So where is the fine line between design concepts, time management and overpaying in your technical production costs?

We believe the key is the difference between the execution and the managing – here are three reasons to consider sourcing a full-service lighting, sound, video production, staging design and overall production design company like Visionary Sound Productions LLC for your future events:

1. HARMONIOUS – When one company brings white colored gear, and another brings black or one company bring moving lights for the band and the other brings moving lights for the venue- you’ve got yourself a huge design issue.  Events are always happening and so is the attention to detail as well as the guests levels of expectation.  By hiring one production company to perfectly handle your technical event needs, you as the planner, coordinator and main go-to for the client can concisely dictate your expectations and go greater distances.

2. DOLLARS – Think about your costs when sourcing audio, video, and lighting equipment from 3-4 separate vendors. The charges add up when you consider labor and trucking fees between three different companies, along with all their different costs for a project.

3. TIME MANAGEMENT – Consider the communication with all of your vendors and the complexities behind the overall design concept, load-in and strike times, venue restrictions, power distribution, rigging and all the questions that are associated with any event.  By sourcing fewer production companies for events, you’ll be able to streamline your communication, save more time for managerial aspects of the entire event, and spend less time on your computer and cell phone.

360 Degree White Dance Floor

Have you ever had the chance to dance on a Round White Dance Floor?  Have you ever seen a Round White Dance Floor before?  I’m guessing you answered no to one or both questions.  Why is that you ask?  Probably because, until now, it was non existent in the State of Michigan.

In early 2015, VSP purchased a brand new 24′ Diameter Round White Dance Floor with lots of versatility for your next special event.

What makes this dance floor so unique is the option to create different shape dance floors, in addition to the true 24′ diameter round white dance floor.  This includes the traditional square dance floor, unique ovals and other designs.

In addition to the white dance floor we also purchased VERSA-FLOOR panels.  Basically these are individual dance floor panels with a unique feature…a clear top panel with space in-between for artwork, logos, graphics, hand drawings, color panels etc.  With just a few of these panels you can completely personalize this amazing dance floor for your next event.

If you would like more information, pricing details or availability on this Round White Dance Floor along with Lighting, Sound, Video, Staging and Design Services then call Aaron at 248-762-2898.

Homecoming 2015

Some school dances have come a LONG way over the years.  This year VSP had the privilege of providing unique designs for a few local area schools.  Each school dance below had over 60 LED Wash, Beam, Spot & Fixtures to create unique looks that VSP operated throughout the dance.  Audio was also deployed so students could hear clearly and feel the thump of todays music.  Creative backdrops, which incorporate themes & solid black drape walls were also utilized to creates the illusion of a small, fun and endless space.

Each design below was specifically designed for the space, student count and something that the students would be able to look back upon later in life, and say “Our School had an amazing and energetic dance.  Something unique, that I’v never seen before.”

To take your High School Dance to the next level.  Call Aaron @ 248-762-2898 for a consultation.

Up-Lighting Mystery

Up-Lighting, Room Lighting, LED Lighting, Wall Wash Lighting all sound the same, yet only two of these terms are the most similar. Up-Lighting & Wall Wash Lighting are the most similar.

Room Lighting can be accomplished in multiple ways and using up-lighting is one way to achieve this, but there are numerous alternatives to create amazing looks within a venue.

LED Lighting which is such a widely used term, that is so often mistaken for what an LED actually is. LED is an acronym for “Light Emitting Diode.” Basically an electrical current passes thru a semiconductor material, which then illuminates a light source called LED. Heat is typically dispersed using heat sinks and/or cooling fans, this typically depends on the amount of heat being generated. LED Lighting is used everywhere, including your car, cell phone, computer, TV and of course the entertainment industry.

VSP has numerous options when it comes to LED Lighting; Including: LED Strip Lights, LED Par Can Lights, LED Intelligent Lighting and of course those small work lights we use over our consoles.

Be sure to ask the following questions prior to renting LED Up-Lighting for your next event:
Are the fixture’s LED Diodes, Single, Tri, Quad, 5 or 6 Color Diodes? Tri Color and up fixtures eliminates the shadow effect created by single color LED fixtures.

What wattage are the fixtures? The higher wattage, the brighter the fixture. A common LED up-light should have LEDs in the range of 1 Watt to 10 Watt Per Diode. A Side Note Example. A Quad Color LED Fixture that is rated at 10 Watts Per LED Diode and has 7 Lens: This is typically Red, Green, Blue, White, (RGBW) and is actually a 70 Watt Fixture at full power only. However…maybe you want your venue all green? Technically the green diodes are actually 2.5 Watts Per x 7 Lens which is actually 17.5 Watts of output.

Are the fixtures recommended for camera use? Most low end fixtures have a nearly invisible flicker effect that is highly visible when recording an event on camera. Be sure the fixtures you are using are flicker-free rated for TV and FILM.

Can we change the colors at any point during the event? Most fixtures in the entertainment industry have DMX capabilities, this is the protocol that lighting desks use to communicate with a fixture. This is typically an added cost and does require a skilled operator to set-up, program and operate the fixtures for the duration of your event.

APRIL 2015 SPECIAL, Experience the true difference in quality & service.
All Static One Color LED Up-Lighting special MYSTERY PRICE is only a PHONE CALL or EMAIL away.**
248-762-2898 or Aaron@VisionarySoundProductions.com
