Welcome To RocketHouse!
We’re a Canadian production house that develops creative experiences to resonate with your audience. We’re known for our creativity, but underneath the glitter we’re outcome-oriented. We anchor our work in quantifiable solutions that focus on social good.
Our clients engage us to produce live events, interactive fundraising, emceeing, team building and creative tech solutions. Our work integrates performing arts, new media, and film. Taken together, we call this adventure design.
Responding to COVID-19, we’ve built RocketHouse Studio — a full-service livestream film studio in Calgary. It is the day to day home of our signature cancer fundraising event, Spin For Life.
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.

Live Event Production
Our projects are geared for purpose. [Practical] We identify the why: fundraising? community? education? debate? [Creative] Audiences consume excitement; we build engagement through entertainment.
This sample pack of RocketHouse Creations includes a zombie apocalypse, custom wearable tech, an album launch, engaged philanthropy, large and small client events, and the world’s first parkour play. We invite you to poke around to learn how we connect with audiences.
[Design] We interlace storytelling, performance and community action with craftsmanship to welcome our audiences into lateral thinking and gameplay [Adventure]. We create a platform for guests to make choices to explore who they are in the world around them.
Our client relationships are at the heart of why, what and for whom we create. We love working with organizations that strive to make the world around them a better and more interesting place whether that’s through charity, art, or innovation.
[Impact] We measure qualitative and quantitative single event metrics with a view to long-term, multi-event strategies [Experience]. Rarely do we enter into a client relationship as a one-off. The longer we can work together, the better we can create lasting positive changes for you and your audience.
Our two co-founders form the core of our team flanked by a flexible cadre of contractors who are engaged on a project-by-project basis. While Steve and Zoë curate and lead the creative and business elements, our contractors apply their specifics skills in marketing, writing, videography, computer engineering, app design, or a wealth of other talents that may be called upon.
Social Good: ...a good or service that benefits the largest number of people in the largest possible way. Some classic examples of social goods are clean air, clean water and literacy; in addition, many economic proponents include access to services such as healthcare in their definition of the social or "common good".
