Meet the Team

We’re a team of over 40 creatives with backgrounds in programming, metalworking, animation, sculpting, digital fabrication, creative writing and other mediums. We’ve worked on projects including SXSW, Burning Man, museum exhibits, haunted attractions, theme parks and escape rooms. 

Traditional museums, galleries and theme park attractions of late have left us feeling flat. We yearn for more experiences that immerse the viewer in the environment. Through highly interactive tech, large-scale props, sets, and an engaging narrative, we’re taking immersion to the next level and hope to inspire the next generation of creators.
