Welcome to RocketHouse!
First thing’s first... you’re probably wondering about that asterisk. Well…
*We make a point of not submitting our work for awards because we have a higher priority in mind: You. We measure success through the lasting satisfaction of our clients and the quantitative impact of our creations; and, quite frankly, awards distract from all of that. We’ll take testimonials over trophies any day.
Now, let’s introduce ourselves properly…
We’re a Canadian production house that develops creative experiences to resonate with our audiences on a deeper level. We’re most known for our creativity, but underneath all the glitter we’re actually very practical. We strive to anchor our work in quantifiable solutions and get to the heart of our clients’ needs with a core focus on overall social good.
Our clients usually approach us for adventure design, team building, live events, theatre, immersive marketing, and creative tech solutions, so our work reaches into the realms of performing arts, live events, new media, film and audio design.
We’d like to say a quick word about vocabulary. We find that many of the clients that come to us are used to working with event or theatre companies, so they’re used to different terminology and aren’t quite sure how to talk about what we do. We know that’s stressful for everyone, so throughout the website we’ve included a few terms and definitions for you to use and enjoy.
Production House: A production company or a production house provides the physical basis for works in the realms of the performing arts, new media art, film, television, radio, and video. The production company may be directly responsible for fundraising for the production or may accomplish this through a parent company, partner, or private investor. It handles budgeting, scheduling, scripting, the supply with talent and resources, the organization of staff, the production itself, post-production, distribution, and marketing.
Resonance: ... a true ability to move people and to give them an experience that is both transcendent and transforming…Resonant themes elevate your work from craft to art. An artist is someone who takes you where you could never go alone, and theme is the vehicle for getting there.
