Coming from all walks of life, we are united by passion. With us, each new project is a blank page waiting for everyone’s creativity and talent, regardless of responsibilities, roles or areas of expertise. Having the taste to invent, to try, to fail to start over and to learn from others allows us to participate collectively in projects larger than ourselves. It is today thanks to a team of 350 creatives that we have the chance to create immersive multimedia environments at the service of artists, museums, airports, brands, theme parks or events, in addition of our signature shows. Whatever the canvas, the thirst to experiment and innovate in video, lighting, multimedia architecture, sound design, special effects and interactivity is at the heart of our DNA. In our studios in Montreal, Paris, New York or Tokyo, we are constantly on the lookout for curious and inspired talents. Find your place among our team of enthusiasts!
