We're a creative firm that wants to change the way we experience and deliver live events. We believe in great design, at great price points, with great engagement from our audiences. In 2019 Nathan Alves and Seth Jackson (the partners) got together and decided after a decade of collaborating on show designs to stop hiring each other and combine their firms. With clients and relationships that extend back 30 years, The Darkroom offers a depth of experience that is invaluable in building live events.
Parnelli Awards, Redden Awards, college professorships, and a large collection of published articles and other works (no small feat of which is Seth's book on Concert Design) are up on the walls in our home offices.
Our experience tells us that live is the key to connecting artists with their fans, that life starts when the houselights go down, and that connected experiences are more important than the size of a show.
We're looking to collaborate with artists that will help us get there. We're not here to win business, we're here to recruit partners. Think of the dent in the universe Steve Jobs used to talk about. Let's go there. We know that's ambitious. We think we can do that together. Let's change the way we do live.
