Omni Studio


Specialising in Video Design for the stage with a background in film production, the studio’s work ranges from artist films, festival installations, wall-based artworks to large-scale projection mapping projects and light works.

The studios own work often explores perception and tension between the real and synthesized worlds. Through the use of light, sound, pattern, sequencing and technology we attempt to create inspiring and involved work that moves beyond the confines of it’s physicality.

In 2013 our work featured in the European stage premiere of the international best seller, The Kite Runner, which received critical acclaim. In 2014, the studio was commissioned to create the first of it’s large scale projection projects, Theatre of Illumination, for Light Night Leeds, to an audience of over 30,000.

Highlights for 2015 saw our projection and design work in shows such as Derren Brown – Miracle, Rocky the Musical for Stage Entertainment in Germany, the national tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the creation of The MegaPhone Box for Hull Freedom Festival and a studio profile in the international publication Bright 2 by Frame Publishing.

2016 saw the re-working of The Kite Runner into the West End; The beginning of the Fragmented Light Orchestra [FLO], a multi-disciplinary sculptural installation based on the 3,500 year old design of the Harp that transforms its environment and surrounding buildings into an awe-inspiring interactive light and sound instrument, video design for Darkness Darkness at Nottingham Playhouse and new installation work, The Secret Life of Trees at Bournemouth Arts by the Sea Festival 2016.

During 2017 we continued to develop the Fragmented Light Orchestra alongside design work for the dance piece, Living Lakes in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Living Lakes was originally performaned at the Duderstadt Center and later developed at Links Hall, Chicago. The piece is scheduled for its New York debut at Dixon Place in 2018.

The last major work of 2017 is a large scale light and sound installation called Rising Sun as associate artists for Bournemouth Arts by the Sea festival.
