Theatrical And Effects Lighting

Quality theatrical and effects lighting can provide a number of benefits for your live performance venue, including:

  • Creating atmosphere: Lighting can set the tone and mood of a performance, whether it’s a dramatic play, a musical, or a dance production. Lighting can be used to create a sense of tension, excitement, or tranquility, depending on the needs of the production.
  • Enhancing visual interest: Good lighting can add depth, dimension, and visual interest to a performance. It can highlight specific areas of the stage or create dynamic patterns and textures to capture the audience’s attention.
  • Providing visual cues: Lighting can help guide the audience’s attention to specific actors or props on stage, emphasizing key moments in the performance.
  • Supporting storytelling: Lighting can be used to enhance the narrative of a performance. For example, changes in lighting can signal a change in time, location, or mood.
  • Creating a sense of immersion: High-quality theatrical and effects lighting can transport the audience into the world of the performance, creating a sense of immersion that can be particularly powerful in live theater.
  • Overall, quality theatrical and effects lighting is an important component of any live performance.

Gina P.

Steve and Adam were easy to work with, schedule and did a great, thorough job reconfiguring my tv set up, sound bar and fire stick. They made sure they’d done everything possible to make sure it all worked seamlessly ( and cut down the amount of remotes I needed ) and the best part – made sure I knew how to get to all the benefits of the system!

Pete T.

Had a difficult ceiling speaker install (right next to a joist on both speakers). They were able to install and rewire my receiver so it was working on all modes. Professional, good work quality, knowledgeable and responsive. Highly recommend!

James P.

These guys are amazing! We had them update our entertainment center and WIFI. They tell you what they are going to do and do it. When we added some challenges to our project and they didn’t know the answer, they researched it online and by calling the vendor and solved the problem. They not only arrived on time but they left our home cleaner than when they arrived. I highly recommend these guys.

Claudia M.

Adam and Steve installed my home theater very efficiently. I am very happy with the results and would recommend them to anyone.

I had a great experience with Axiom. They installed plantation shutters and a beautiful shade for my slider door. The quality of product and service was excellent!! I highly recommend and would use again

Jonathan H.

The Axiom team was very professional and diligent in upgrading my family room entertainment system (Control4, Roku), house speaker system (Control 4), and theatre room projector. Went above and beyond what I expected.

Rhonda F.

Steven and Adam are awesome and very informative about all the options available in window treatments. Thank you for being so thorough with explaining what was needed and making my house look as good as it was before the installation. I love how good my shutters look.

The Sanders P.

Axiom were the most professional contractors I’ve ever worked with. They were super clean and it went above beyond to help with my home project. And I only did they install the window blinds that was within their scope of work, they also help me hang a large picture without any complaints. I definitely recommend them and I will continue to use our services in the future.
