Visual storytelling encompasses the art of motion graphics, 3D rendering and visual design for the purpose of activating a mural, blank surface, large building, entire room or a wine bottle. The story unfolds while event lighting or retail lighting provides a foundation for the projection to truly immerse the senses and bring the activation to life.


"I highly recommend 3 Stage Lighting for any event lighting needs. They recently provided their exceptional services for our school's 25th anniversary Gala, and the results were stunning. The lighting was able to transform a school gym into a beautiful elegant event space. Their team's creativity, attention to detail, and professionalism truly elevated the event's ambiance. From start to finish, 3 Stage Lighting exceeded our expectations and contributed to the Gala's success."
