PARACOSM brings interactive and immersive experiences to life! We live to create events that connect and convince; educate and motivate; enchant and excite; engage and persuade; inspire and ignite! Lights, Sounds and Staging are useless without quality, creative reasons to use them. PARACOSM will show you how to get the most out of your A/V and production service vendors because we understand the tools needed to get the job done, how they work, and, most importantly, why you've decided to use them in the first place!

Our World

PARACOSM is a production company comprised of storytellers and engineers. We do more than create unforgettable events, we render authentic guest experiences. We come from a wide array of artistic and technical fields. Our creative team is comprised of Broadway professionals, theme park imagineers, convention directors, interactive developers, broadcasters and television/film producers. We specialize in combining our respective disciplines to deliver unique live experiences with an emphasis on education, guest interaction, brand magnification and stakeholder retention.

Development

We conceive, write and produce original work in consultation with our clients and their stakeholders. We plan and lead creative meetings with in-house event directors and their event staff. We even prepare and train event staff and volunteers to deliver in their respective support roles.

You can’t buy an authentic experience, no matter how large your budget. Life changing events must be developed from within your organization, nurtured and constantly refined. No one knows your audience like you do. No one respects this more than we do.

It’s not about size or money or resources. It’s all about impact. We are not limited by our imaginations. We are limited only by our know-how, perspective and ability to align the interests of a great team with great ideas. At PARACOSM, the biggest idea is the simplest to understand: your people, passion and resources can create incredible, life changing experiences.

Let us show you how!


We deliver your message. Do you?

Dramaturgical Services

You can spot it on their faces -

...in an instant, the human heart feels things the eyes cannot see and knows things the mind cannot understand. It’s that “ah-ha” moment -- when hearing is replaced by listening; when understanding transforms into caring; when people change and they can’t go back.

Dusty old libraries, abandoned lighthouses, hidden laboratories, a shopping mall with a secret... our team of writers, designers, directors and engineers know how to bring your message to life! Tired of talking heads and variety act entertainment? Let us show your team how to replace the filler with original, dynamic, high-impact, life changing theatrical experiences!

Go to the people.
Learn from them.
Live with them.
Start with what they know.
Build with what they have.
The best of leaders when
the job is done, when the
task is accomplished,
the people will say we have
done it ourselves.

Production

FROM THE PAGE...

PARACOSM is not a rental company. We are a design and development team that knows how to take ideas from concept to reality in ways that are cost efficient and effective.

Our competitors are rental companies first - they render event and meeting production services in conjunction with the equipment they provide. We focus on developing ideas worth producing. We leverage our creative writing team and years of production experience to keep costs low while translating theatrical tools into meaningful, moving and transformative life experiences - i.e., something worth paying for!

Elaborate sets, pyrotechnics and laser lights are useless without quality, creative reasons to use them. PARACOSM can help you get the most out of your A/V and production service vendors because we understand the tools needed to get the job done, how they work, and, most importantly, why you’ve decided to use them in the first place.

...TO THE STAGE.

BOSTON

This is thematic message delivery on steroids. Our writers and designers developed a script and set design that took full advantage of the ceiling height at Boston’s Convention Center. From front-of-house announcements like “Ye Cameras May Flash, but You May Not” to original live theatrical pieces complete with a cast in period costuming, this event was not only fun and educational - it was revolutionary!

PUERTO RICO

For this project, our designers took cues from the colorful sights and stone fortresses of Old San Juan, incorporating the energy and architecture of this beautiful city into a stage design that was as fun and inviting as it was practical. Transforming a convention hall into an intimate, yet fun and dynamic environment like this one requires clear vision and a genuine understanding of the target audience.

Interactive

IT'S NOT A GAME...

...IT'S YOUR LIFE

An audience at play is an audience at attention. PARACOSM creates dynamic, interactive programming that challenges and educates by combining theatrical lighting and special effects to envelop our audience in immersive, video-game like experiences. Our team creates fun, theme-park style adventures, many of which adapt or change in real-time based on audience input. From outdoor obstacles courses to a game of dodgeball that demonstrates the price of dodging responsibility, we know how to deliver your message in ways that are safe, fun and unforgettable.

ALTERNATE REALITY GAMES

PARACOSM creates and manages original, customized ARGs for the events and shows it develops so that you can engage your audience before, during and after the project is over! Take Get-It-Now, Corp. for example - a fictitious research company announces they have developed a brain implant that can make ethical decisions, and markets the product to parents of teenagers. Immediately, controversy ensues. Protest groups begin springing up all over the internet. For the first time, Get-It-Now opens its doors to the public... and the audience is primed and ready for a life changing experience!

INTERACTIVE MEDIA

PARACOSM knows how to bring your events to life on-line as well. From capturing and leveraging analytic data to focus your marketing efforts in ways that drive attendance, to custom content designed to share, and be shared, on popular social networking platforms, PARACOSM can show you how to reach your audience, recruit volunteers and make new friends! Contact us today to learn how to get your audience to find and follow their hearts to your next event!
