We are the creative minds behind our client’s and partner’s brave ideas. Together, we have created several award-winning events and some very major show productions. We thrive on new ideas and unique, creative formats. Each of our projects arise from bespoke creative processes that elaborate on our clients’ unique requests.
At Battle Royal Studios, our team of experts purposefully engages a unique range of skills that fuse ideation processes and strategic investigation, creative and hybrid production, as well as production management and show direction.
Your idea & our shared process
Our work is process-based from the get-go: depending on the parameters of your project, we will enter one of many avenues of creation that involve our range of bespoke ideation processes specially developed by us to help you get the most bank for your buck. And for your audience the most lasting and impactful impressions.
Into the detail, down to the essence
Ideation and process workshops guarantee plenty of essential face time with you: we will challenge our clients to think big, and together with us walk along the various steps of strategy and show ideation. Whether you bring the idea or we find the big idea together based on your brief, the process remains collective and steered by industry experts.
We come from theater, music shows, ceremonies, and large events – we know how to create and stun a fan-base and we want you to strive for great ideas with us, for them. In this ideation phase, we create prototypes of potential user journeys that reflect the dynamics of the IRL experience: We layout each step of a bespoke journey, meeting your audience at their first point of contact to when they have become fans of your cause.
Based on these insights, we will concept a show that is relevant to your brand or project and reflects a compelling narrative core that meets your audiences with a positive response. This is the time for us to flesh out our grand ideas, develop the story arches, elaborate the show’s visual worlds in mood boards, and discover the narrative’s potential in storyboards. After an initial technical briefing, we will also start realising the full potential of the show in first stage renderings and scribbles. This is creativity to touch!
We revel in the chance to redefine the framework of reality by moving between creative enquiry and consolidation. Once we’ve seen the first scribbles and stage renders, we will enter a phase of thoughtful experimentation that is led by our urge to discover the most exciting uses of the latest technologies and apply them to create your show or experience. With such first-case-uses of systems working together we redefine what is possible for your audience.
From idea to process
Once elaborated creatively, we consolidate our ideas and form them into technological and production processes: Immersive user journeys are mapped out as site maps and stage shows are conveyed in stage plots. Logistical plans allow you to keep track and guide all affiliated production departments through a smooth and trackable production process.
Working in unison across the show-related and technical departments our expertise in technical direction guarantees a seamless workflow off and on-site, while being conscious of your budget and time.
The run of show
All of these moments and design elements find their Raison d'Être in our Run of Show document. It’s an integral piece of Battle Royal Studio’s production routine. We leave nothing to chance; and instead, time itself is met with a carefully orchestrated set of plans.
With over a decade of experience to rely on, we have become experts in anticipating and considering every possible requirement, need, or desire for creating a captivated audience. As your production begins to come to life it is our job to make sure no detail is overlooked.
Imagination without limits
Every production we do is driven by our clients’ and partners’ aspirations, and propelled by our motivation to outdo ourselves with every new experience we put together.
The creative production encompasses each of these steps and more: it manages the concept creation as such, as well as operating the ways in which the creative, tech, and show departments work together to form a flawless whole. The result of all the thought, process and production management, and creative padding ultimately passes into a physical form: the show.
All eyes on us
This is where our show teams take over and maneuver some of the most ancient bodies of knowledge on this planet: the magic of making the show work on a stage, on any stage. At Battle Royal Studies, we come from mixed professional backgrounds of world-level state of art show production and live entertainment. While for our clients, show day is the most important, we realised that for us, it is the weeks and days leading up to the event that are the most crucial in order to create a smooth show run.
This is where we get to flex our muscles by managing the intricate and complex workflows. This can include managing the performers and briefing essential stakeholders to guarantee everyone involved has a clear direction leading up to your day.In rehearsals, we ensure that everything we have planned will be executed perfectly by show night. As we bring to life the concept our team is also working on perfecting all the details on timings, stagings, and stage craft. . We have a bird’s eye view on the production, observing process and resulting impact, on the stage, backstage, and beyond:
We don't stop there.
Every possible outcome is carefully balanced to make sure there are no surprises on the day of the show, Even our contingency plans have contingency plans. Because, after all, the show must go on. And we are making sure it will.
