Over the years we’ve created many different types of theatrical inflatables that are used for a range of uses from complete sets, to stand out pieces, to amazing environments that children with special needs can enter and experience different sensations, textures, and lighting.
Theatrical inflatables make great alternatives for sets because they are extremely versatile in their designs, with all being custom made, and are fast to set up and relatively cost effective when compared to traditional set design construction methods.
With each inflatable being 100% custom, we can take your concept and turn it into reality for a fraction of the cost of a traditional set.
Each theatrical inflatable we have is completely custom and bespoke to each client.
We jump right in from the initial concept stage, so as long as you have a drawing or at least an idea of what you’re looking for, we can advise you on the feasibility of doing that as an inflatable. Apart from the concept, we just need to understand:
Once we have this information, we can start working on this exciting venture with you.
Inflatables make excellent sets because there is a lot of versatility in the capability of design. With each one being custom, we basically take your brief, and then get to work on creating it into a 3D computer created model where we can work out all the fine details of the inflatable before starting on it.
This is the design phase of the project and you have the option here to make any changes you require before the inflatable goes into our construction phase where we start printing, cutting, and assembling the unit.
Once the design is approved by yourself, that’s when we move into the construction phase.
The construction phase can take anywhere between 2 to 8 weeks, depending on the size and complexity of your theatrical inflatable, as well as what our workload looks like at the time (summer festivals anyone?)
This is where our team really shines and turns your imagination into a reality. We always quality control check all inflatables before they go out the door, so as to ensure that when you receive your product, there are absolutely no unwanted surprises for you.
We understand that when you’re travelling with a performance, the last thing you want to have to do when you arrive at a new location is to spend hours and hours setting up for the performance, that itself will be very exhausting.
Theatrical inflatables only take a matter of minutes to set up and going from arrival to set up is realistically only a matter of minutes (always less than an hour) after the set has been rolled out onto the stage.
This lets you focus on the other tasks at hand, like rehearsals, and having a good rest before your performance.
The same goes for pack up. From the moment you switch off the fans, the inflatables will start to deflate and you’ll be ready to start packing them away. Once rolled up, they will pack up very small, allowing you to easily fit them in your truck or van without taking up precious space.
Theatrical inflatables are not just for sets that are on stage, but can also be used for interactive displays and other types of promotions.
As inflatables are relatively durable given their portability, it is possible to allow children to interact with them when supervised by adults.
When coupled with other elements of a set, they can come together to create a very emotive and powerful environment that is only limited by the creativity of your imagination.
We always love being challenged by new client requirements and projects. We find that stage set theatrical inflatables are always exciting to work on and we enjoy the challenges that they bring above and beyond normal projects that we work on.
We’re available Monday to Friday during business hours to discuss your project with you, so regardless of what stage you're at in your planning, be sure to get in touch with us!
