Now the projections can live in a modern stage environment at  venues like Red Rocks, Fox Theater Oakland, Block Stage: Desert Daze, Wiltern Theater, Orpheum Theater, Fillmore San Francisco and Denver, Irving Plaza, London Forum and many more. We utilize custom video presenters, video cameras and mixers projected through an array of Epson Lazer 6K and 8K equipment but while still maintaining the analog art aspect.
