The Professional Production Division is a standard fixed rate structure for which you can budget. If you are a school, church, or non-profit interested in working on a percentage basis, please go to our Education & Fundraising Division.
We understand one of the first questions people need to know is "How much does this cost?" However, asking how much a laser show or glow party cost would be similar to asking a wedding planner, "How much is a wedding?" or a real estate agent "How much is a house?" There are simply too many options and variables to give a fair quote without first getting more information from you and a ballpark budget.
Our services are priced differently than many entertainment options. The nature of our services do not allow us to have a "menu" or "price list" because our overhead will vary greatly for each event based on what a customer needs. This is different than fireworks, in which the rate is contingent on the length of the show. That is because fireworks can only be used once so the length determines how many fireworks are needed. In contrast, our lasers and lights will be used for many years. So whether your event time is 10 minutes or 2 hours, it will require the same equipment, travel, set-up and take down, and technicians.
Our operating costs are dependent on several factors:
1) Where are you located? 2) How dark can the venue safely get? (impacts how many and how powerful our lasers/lights need to be) 3) Does the customer want a: a) Graphic laser show where laser images are displayed on a large flat surface b) Beam laser show where visible beams are seen over everyone's heads c) Professional glow in the dark UV effect where neon clothes, paint, etc. will "pop" d) Professional lighting to fit a specific event, such as color coordination, uplighting, etc. e) Any combination of or all of the above
4) Does the venue have a sufficient sound system or do we need to provide sound? 5) Where can we safely set up smoke machines? (These are necessary for a beam laser show to be seen by the human eye) 6) How much power is available at the venue? Will a distribution box or generator be necessary? 7) How many people will likely be present and how wide of an area do we need to "light up?" (This determines how many lights we need to effectively light your venue.) 8) Do we need to file FAA paperwork in order to operate lasers outdoors? (If laser beams are going into the sky and not terminating on a flat surface such as a wall or thick set of trees, this will be necessary.) 9) What are the goals of the customer in having an EOP Experience? Our job is to help you accomplish your goals while staying within your budget. We take your budget and try to put together a package that will work for all.
With that said, we find most contracts in this division to average between the $6,000 and $12,000 range. We have done events for less and some customers have the budget for even larger upgrades. If you find cost is the only barrier, please call us at 252-764-7628. We love doing events, so we will work hard to find creative solutions to make numbers work for everyone. If your date is flexible or if we can partner your event with another nearby client, we can often reduce our operating costs and pass those savings on to you.
