IMMANENT is in its sixth year of operation as a motion design and film production studio that specializes in immersive visual experiences. We are a team of designers, animators, videographers, video engineers, directors, producers, and programmers that focus on live events, editorial video, and virtual streaming showcases. We create compelling visual experiences that are uniquely designed for individual artists or the event as a whole. Our background in the touring music world has taught us to focus on the visual story behind the music which provides memorable moments to the audiences. Telling the story of the music through visual form is the key to our success.


We are highly experienced in production. We often work with clients that need all aspects of an event, film shoot, or touring production created from start to finish. Our team can scale to manage and staff a wide variety of productions. We have working relationships with equipment vendors and production professionals all over the world which gives us an advantage in getting the best value and product for our clients.
