Our 4D theaters enhance the traditional movie theater experience with a range of immersive effects like scents, vibrating seats, lighting effects, wind, rain and practical mechanical effects. We produce the films and design, install and automate the effects that go with them.


Our interactive modules present information in fun and involving ways. Our modules range from practical interactives involving lights, buttons, sound and circuitry to software-based programs that incorporate animations and video.


We bring our storytelling expertise to corporate clients, delivering engaging internal and commercial videos.
