Our goal is to provide the platform where lifelong memories are born, and commencements are some of those wonderful celebrations that are reminisced on time and time again.
Few companies have reached the status that Google has achieved in the technological world. Let’s face it, the word “google” is now a common verb synonymous with words like “search”, “discover”, and “learn”—and this is no coincidence. Google’s influence on the digital community is massive and they remain on the cutting edge of new, innovative ideas on how technology can interact with human activity. They’ve conquered the internet and are climbing the developmental mountain as leaders of VR and AI.
We are experts at production technology. You’d be hard pressed to find our crew with clean hands and we share a passion for making things work, no matter if it’s on stage or in the shop.

A ticket to the Met Gala (officially known as the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala) is one of the year’s most coveted invitations. It makes sense considering the “party of the year” brings together over 500 of our culture’s biggest celebrity icons covering the music, fashion, film, political, and business industries. More importantly, the Met Gala is an annual fundraising benefit for the museum’s Costume Institute in New York City. The event is the perfect way to honor the mission of the Costume Institute and pay homage to prominent artists and themes that have driven fashion evolution throughout history.
