Mesmer design and create films, animations and motion graphics for integration into theatre, opera and dance productions, fashion shows, art installations, concerts and live events.
Our work blends virtual and real-world environments, traditional and cutting-edge methods, and places storytelling and audience communication at the fore.
Building on over three decades of experience, Mesmer associates have designed Olivier and Tony award-winning shows and been consultants for The Royal Opera House, The Victoria and Albert Museum, The National Theatre and Disneyland. Our expertise crosses boundaries between projection and content playback, image creation and manipulation. This requires technical knowledge balanced with design skills and a creative problem solving approach. We have combined and developed our services working throughout the creative industries.
This means we understand how projection relates to photography, or how live video playback relates to video post production methods. We understand cueing and resolution, frame rates and aesthetics, exposure and surface luminance. These are specialisms in different fields, but for us they are all integrated into how we work.
Our work has been seen at the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal Opera House, the National Theatres of Britain, Wales and Scotland, as part of immersive performances for Secret Cinema, in fashion events for Alexander McQueen, Burberry and Louis Vuitton, Manchester International Festival, GQ Men of The Year and Gothenburg Opera House, in exhibitions at The Met and the V&A, in festival performances for Complicite, Edinburgh Festival, Sydney Festival, Festival d’Avignon, as outdoor projections in Berlin, Dublin, Glasgow, New York and London, for the National Youth Theatre in Saudi Arabia, and in global tours of West End musicals… to name a few…
Mesmer has been involved in the development, delivery and production of award-winning and award-nominated productions in theatre, opera and for theme park and immersive environments.
