Hosting a Fantastic Valentine’s Day Event

Hosting a Fantastic Valentine’s Day EventValentine’s Day is that memorable time of year when relationships deepen, new love blossoms, and longtime sweethearts renew their passion for one another. Of course, often times the venue plays into these romantic notions. Can you imagine attending a lackluster event that completely rips the spirit of the holiday out of the date? If you’re hosting a Valentine’s Day event, make sure that your venue is second to none for your guests.

For example, are you hosting outdoors? If so, then consider using our professional lighting services to really make the location shine in all the right places. The proper amount of intrigue to help set the mood is a simple matter for our full event package.

Perhaps a kissing booth might help break the ice with any single’s event you’re arranging! A photo booth right next to that could also create everlasting memories.

Sound System & Entertainment

Regardless of the type of Valentine’s Day event you’re coordinating, the sound system is essential. Since all of our packages are adjustable to meet your specific needs, you never need to worry about the music, DJ, MC, or band falling flat. Aside from equipment, we can also provide a sound engineer and assistant to ensure everything runs smoothly.

If you’re featuring live entertainment, then you might consider using any of our perfectly sized stages. Ranging from 2’x4’ to over 100’ wide, our stage selection can accommodate any need that may arise. Stage rentals also include set-up, one stair package, and black skirting, thus making a presentable location from which to announce or perform from.

With a special something in the air that can tend to bring out the animal in some people, and the sly shyness in others, you’re responsible for creating an atmosphere in which love can flourish. After all, that’s what your guests expect, and what will keep them coming back next year! Contact us at Studio 33 today for more details.

Holiday Ice Skating Rinks For Your Community

Holiday Ice Skating Rinks For Your CommunityWhen you think winter and Christmas, the average American is reminded of snow, ice, Santa Claus, holiday gifts and looking forward to Christmas morning when they can go unwrap their gifts, while watching legendary holiday movies like National Lampoon’s Vacation or It’s a Wonderful Life. For most residents living in particular parts of California, the snow and ice is not something you see in the winter months or even get to experience during the holiday unless you get a chance to travel.

For those lucky few who live in the Folsom, CA area, they are lucky enough to be treated to a winter and holiday adventure.

Folsom Ice Rink Creation

In the Folsom Historic District, organizers wanted to bring a holiday tradition to community, something that residents of all ages could have fun with. An ice skating rink gives skaters hours of entertainment and allows them to experience the holiday atmosphere.

To create the ice skating rink and all the trimmings that go along with a seasonal ice rink, the organizers of Folsom reached out to Studio 33 to build and fashion the perfect holiday ice rink. Not only does Studio 33 install and operate all the ice rinks that are made, but also includes but not limited to staffing the rink and overseeing the day-to-day management.

Other solutions or services that Studio 33 offers for an ice rink are lighting, stages and sound systems. In the sound system installed at this year’s Folsom Ice Rink, Studio 33 created and fabricated metal shells that are made to look like nutcracker. This was done to solve the audio inadequacies as the original speakers were too far away to engage the holiday atmosphere.Holiday Ice Skating Rinks For Your Community

In past years Studio 33 has worked with local cities such as Rialto, Fontana and Temecula to produce seasonal and holiday ice rinks for their communities to enjoy. So if you’re looking to bring your community together with a holiday ice rink, made of real ice, with turnkey management and installation, this can all be handled by the professional staff at Studio 33.

For more information on getting a seasonal ice rink or any of the many great services that Studio 33 offers, contact the experts at Studio 33 today!

Shade Tops and Misting Systems for your Event

Misting Sytems

Outdoor concerts and events tend to be associated with lots of energy and fun. However, in this hot weather, there is an immediate need to cool things down. Having the sun beat down on you for hours can affect not only the performers, but also those in the audience.

Shade Tops and Misting Systems are two things that can help make spending time outdoors more enjoyable for everyone involved.

Shade Tops:

Shade Tops are fairly easy to put up and install, and are a great way to protect people from the blazing sun. The risk of a serious condition like a heat stroke is very real, even if you are only sitting still.

Not to mention, being able to sit in a shaded area will make it easier for the audience to enjoy the event and the time spent. With the different styles and sizes available, there is something for every person and every event.

Misting Systems:

The misting system we use is a high pressure anti-drip misting system. This means that very fine misting droplets are evaporated by the hot air, which causes the air to immediately go down in temperature.

Having a misting system at your event can make the experience that much more pleasurable for everyone involved.

It is extremely important to keep in mind the comfort and the safety of your audience when it comes to any outdoor event. Invest in shade tops and misting systems in order to keep your customers wanting to come back!

Why Rent a Stage for Your Next Event?

Stage RentalAnyone who is organizing an important event will naturally want to make it as exciting and memorable as possible. Whenever entertainment is on the agenda, organizers need to decide where the performers will go. Often, they will ask themselves whether or not they need a stage. However, the question they should be asking is: How can a professional quality stage improve and lend credibility to your event?

A well-designed stage will bring your event entertainment to the next level, both literally and figuratively.  Playing on a raised stage is inspiring and rewarding for performers, whose talents will be on display more effectively. While simply reserving a spot to the side of the crowd might suffice for background dinner music, a stage will draw attention, keeping your event focused on what matters most, and allowing you to deliver an effective message, whatever that may be.

It usually won’t break to bank to enhance your event with a custom stage. You won’t need a 20 foot stage for a solo performer. Our stages can be built as small or large as you’d like. They are priced based on square foot to make sure that you need only to spend as much as you need. Depending on your overall budget, a stage that fits your entertainment can be a cost-effective way of greatly improving its appeal.

Even when it becomes clear that a stage is worth the cash, many event organizers become discouraged in finding the perfect space for it. What if an event is held on uneven terrain? At Studio 33, we have the skill and technique to adapt our stages to all sorts of situations. We’ve constructed stages on uneven golf courses, and even over swimming pools. Once again, the stage increases the effectiveness of a performance by providing a solid platform to stand on.

If you’re planning an event in California, consider renting a stage to bring it to the next level and increase focus on other elements you’ve invested in. Trust Studio 33 for an expertly-constructed, clean looking stage that your guests and performers alike will enjoy.

Should I Rent a Photo Booth for My California Event?

Why Rent A PhotoboothHave you ever been to a boring party or event? We all have, but no one wants things to turn out that way when they’re the host. People stand around awkwardly, drinks in hand, not sure what to talk about with people they don’t know very well. However, there is something that can change the atmosphere for the better…

In Sacramento and other cities around the country, one of the most popular items at parties is the photo booth.

Why does renting a photo booth make for a better party? Well, it gives party guests something fun to do with their time. It gives them a chance to chat with people they don’t know, and to clown around, playing with provided props. Add to that, they get a souvenir—a printed photo—to remember the good time they had at the party!

Today’s photo booths are a great addition to events because they engage the users and entertain them.

Want to choose whether the picture is in color or a more artistic black-and-white style? You can do it. Want to customize the print borders to make the picture framed in a cool way? No problem. Pictures print fast, and you can choose from different sizes. Add to that, the pictures from the event get uploaded to a private gallery online so people can see them all after the party ends.

Studio 33 of Southern California rents enclosed or open-air photo booths complete with a friendly host who ensures things run smoothly. In addition, Studio 33 provides craft scissors, artist pens and glue sticks for on-site scrapbooking.

Whether you’re formally celebrating a wedding or wildly partying for a big birthday, rent a photo booth. It’s a surefire way for your guests to remember the event in the best light possible.

Anyone who has learned to ice skate in the past can tell you how much coordination and balance it takes to stay on your feet, especially at first. With practice, ice skaters build up all those small muscles in the legs, hips, and thighs that work to keep them from falling down.

 

Also, ice skating provides an aerobic workout that doesn’t put as much pressure on your joints and bones as other forms of exercise, like jogging. Whether you’re enjoying a leisurely skate with friends or doing laps by yourself, you’ll be burning some calories while getting your heart pumping.

 

Those of our customers who rent ice rinks from us in California find that ice skating is more than just an enjoyable pastime. It’s also a fun, healthy activity that the whole family can enjoy.

What Can Professional Stage Lighting Do For A Play?

As blockbuster movies take up more and more of our time and attention, the classic theater play stubbornly hangs around. There’s something about live stage acting that can’t be replaced by the big screen. However, great directors understand the importance of professional quality lighting for their stage productions. Good equipment and solid lighting technique can help theater productions to stay relevant, and even ahead, of our effects-obsessed entertainment culture.

Stage lighting can be used to control the focus of the audience where simple camera tricks can’t be employed. Imagine a character in a play, feeling lonely and isolated, beginning to sing a melancholy song at the far end of the stage. A spotlight can help to draw the audience gently towards him. Or maybe a thief is sneaking up behind an oblivious cast, while a light is used to make the audience fully aware of his presence.

Similarly, different qualities and colors of light can be used to affect the mood of any stage production. It’s easy to forget the extent to which different colors are associated with complex feelings and emotions. A stage dimly shrouded in blue-tinted hues provides a much different mood than one illuminated by bright yellow light.

Stage productions are also limited in the quantity and types of props that can be added to any given scene. Professional lighting is a great way to emulate things like snowflakes falling from the sky or the shadows of a dark forest when you are limited by space, time, and budget. Lighting effects are more vivid and realistic than ever before, and can greatly contribute to the “wow” factor of a stage production.

Lighting that is expertly planned and handled by highly skilled professionals can affect an audience in ways that they don’t even realize. For example, lights can produce and enhance illusions of depth that stretch the capabilities of a limited stage. What is important is not how the stage is set up, but how it appears to be set up from the vantage point of the audience.

Of course, these effects aren’t limited to traditional stage plays. They can be used to enhance anything from a musical performance to an elegant ballroom event. To see how lighting can improve the aesthetics of whatever important occasion you have planned, visit Studio 33 Stage Lighting and Special Effects.

Providing For Your Private Business Party

private business partyThe words “corporate party” may not seem like anyone’s idea of a great time. The thought of spending more time around the people you work with could sound boring, stressful or even worse. If you’re planning a business event for your employees or coworkers, there are many ways you can spice up an evening with special effects to make business look a lot more like fun.

What do you think of when you think of a business party? Probably a lot of drab boardrooms, some paper decorations hanging on the wall and a few baked goods with coffee, if you’re lucky. Do a little more homework, though, and you’ll see that you have plenty of options to make a corporate get-together feel like a major social event.

Music can make any gathering perk up and get moving, shaking everyone out of their workday doldrums. If you want a disk jockey to spin tracks for your business party, a DJ rig can help set you up with the equipment you need to turn up the volume on rock, pop, blues or whatever style of music will make your guests enjoy themselves.

Lighting is another way to take any simple announcement party or business gathering into a totally new direction. It’s hard to take yourself too seriously when a disco ball is hanging in the middle of the room, throwing colored drops of light against the wall at all angles. Strobe lights, black lights, programmable moving light displays and various other lighting applications can be easily set up in a space, turning any office space into a downtown nightclub scene.

With Studio 33, there’s almost no end to the various setups we can provide for your private business party. We can provide many pieces of equipment, like snow machines or confetti cannons, which can fire up the imaginations of any event attendee. For a more mysterious setting, such as for an announcement, we can bring ground fog and smoke machines that will create a cloud of vapor which can truly change the atmosphere.

Studio 33 would love to help you jazz up your next corporate event. If your company event is in Southern California or Inland Empire, give us a call and you’ll see just how many options you have for crafting a great party for your colleagues!
