  1. Streaming Sets

    Leave a Comment

    We’ve been decking out streaming studios for the past year and we see that trend continuing! Our team is here to help you create a temporary, semi-permanent or permanent studio in any space with SuperWalls. 

    We can create a modular room or simply an L-shaped backdrop to allow for two camera angles. If you have a large space, we’ll fill the set with SuperWalls and SuperColumns to create visually interesting scenes for multiple camera angles. Take a look at the beautiful studios scrolling above and check out more examples in our Lookbook. Then select your next step below:

  2. 2020 Year in Review

    1 Comment

    What a year. While it was rough, with a capital R, for the live events industry, there were moments of light and positive memories in 2020 that we won’t forget and will hold on to as we move into 2021.

    One big project for us this year started as an experimental pivot in March and has developed into a full blown, new startup. For the past nine months Team ATOMIC has focused energy on designing products and developing the home décor company Spacekit. Applying our design experience to this modular, customizable wall décor system for homes has provided a welcome surge of creativity and inspiration to our team.

    Our Production, Design, Set Construction and Modular Systems teams came together and worked on a variety of projects this year…we are so thankful for our team, our clients and our partners. Take a look at these stellar projects in the photos above and links below:

    VMAs Opening Act by The Weeknd
    American Ninja Warrior
    WWE Thunderdome
    TEDx Kansas City (virtual all day, every day!)
    Streaming Studios

    We’re thinking of all our friends and live event family and wish you and yours a very safe and happy holiday season. We look forward to staying in touch and working together again soon. Here’s to a bright 2021!

  6. Design is in our DNA

    Leave a Comment

    Led by our founder and Chief Creative Officer Tom McPhillips, ATOMIC’s design studio is best-in-class when it comes to design across a multitude of disciplines. Our design portfolio is full of original concepts and renders for diverse genres in a variety of styles that meet clients’ specific needs. Whether working from a brainstormed idea, a brief, a napkin sketch or a mood board – we can meet any client and their needs at any step in the design process.  We have an inherent understanding of how all components interact naturally in both virtual and real-world environments.  As such, our production designers can be creative directors, design developers, renderers, art directors and content creators.     

    In addition, our production and scenic fabrication teams can help turn these ideas and renders – for the virtual or physical world – into reality.
