Immersive Experiences

We create stunning immersive experiences for private and government clients around the world; a logical progression from our history with delivering exceptional standalone artworks and light shows.

Free from the traditional boundaries of proscenium arches and arenas floors, we take great pride in creating multi-disciplinary immersive experiences that offer an unprecedented level of engagement for audiences, councils and brands alike.

Immersive experiences can see forests, parklands, car parks – indeed any urban or natural environment into a night-time wonderland of transformative light and sound.

Meaningful

engagement

We strive to create connections with light; engaging local artists and listening to local history and culture. We believe that experiences should seek to connect audiences with their local environment and drive local engagement so that a local community can feel connected to the experience.

We do this by approaching every experience with a blank sheet of paper where our designers seek to respond to the unique environment of every project and create a truly bespoke experience.

In the past, we’ve utilised First Nations projections, created sculptures based on local flora and fauna and told the stories of indigenous people with carefully curated soundtracks.

From concept

to completion

We believe in a shared journey with our clients from the first phone call to the final debrief meeting. Our team values long-term relationships where projects thrive with active collaboration – not only for creative aspects, but across administration, production and event management channels.

We deliver all aspects of design, production and project management entirely in-house; our designs are always backed by technical and administrative support and the individual crew involved in the design of each experience are actively involved in each delivery.

Our designers connect directly with our clients and the whole Mandylights team is always available to develop any aspect of a project – this is a deliberate attempt to both increase engagement while not resort to traditional methods of “account management” which limit creativity.

A committment

to local suppliers

Our philosophy to engage and celebrate local communities extends far beyond just the creative design. Wherever possible, we utilise local labour, site equipment, accomodation, transport and any other resources. We are transparent, open and honest and willing to work with clients at all stages of production to ensure that the community benefits in as many ways as possible.

Design

backed by accountability

Our team of world-class designers and technicians are backed by administration teams in our Australian and United Kingdom offices. We provide constant administrative and management support on all projects which sets us apart from traditional freelance creatives and smaller collectives.

At all stages of engagement, we provide in house WHS management, financial transparency, outstanding production and project management and constant client contact to ensure that all aspects of a project are on track and accountable.

More moments,

less factory

As a company, we’re all about creating meaningful, long-term relationships with artists, producers, curators and management. We’re not a faceless team like other creative houses – our people and their individual experiences are what make us great – so we celebrate them by putting them front and centre in everything that we do. 

We also cheekily adopt the tagline of “more moments, less factory” because we believe in creating genuinely unique local experiences that truly represent artists, their countries and their histories as opposed to churning out yet another generic concert tour or experiential design. Regardless of budget or venue, Mandylights takes great pride on constant engagement and bespoke experience creation for all our amazing clients.
