Daniel Bortz (former co-owner of Angstrom Stage Lighting, Hollywood, CA.) and James Schipper (former Vice-President of Production for Angstrom Stage Lighting) have joined with David Rosen (founder of Kinetic Event Productions, Los Angeles CA) as partners in a new venture: Kinetic Lighting, Inc.
Originally incorporated as Kinetic Event Productions in 1999, Kinetic Lighting offers turn-key lighting and large-format projection packages, design services, equipment rentals, system consultation, as well as equipment and expendable sales.
As a result of the new partnership, Kinetic has expanded tremendously with an extensive inventory of rental equipment, both new and used sales stock, and warehouse supplies coming from the partnership split of Bortz’s previous company.
Says Schipper, “Our goal is to build strong, lasting relationships by combining our client’s need for an equipment vendor and the desire for a design team that is qualified to transform the nuts and bolts of an event into the art of illumination.”
Since the formation of the new partnership, Kinetic Lighting has provided its services for a rapidly growing list of events including: numerous 2003 Emmy parties, VIP parties for Macy’s Passport L.A., the Schwarzenegger For Governor campaign, the Autry Museum of Western Heritage 2003 Gala, Landry’s Restaurants’ 2003 Sales Meeting, the daKAH hip hop orchestra, the California Fisheries Association 2003 Sales Meeting, the Playa Vista Community’s opening celebrations, and a celebrity wedding.
Kinetic has moved into a larger facility in the media district of Culver City, California, conveniently located for its production, rental, and sales clients. The company’s new contact information is:
