About Us

Adair and Noel


We rent, light, gaff, grip, invent, fix, produce, fabricate, permit and manage - and we have a pretty good idea when to lead, follow or get out of the way. Tight budget? Bring it, we will make it work.  Our clients include Netflix, Hallmark, BBC, ZDF, Paramount, Sony, Discovery, PBS/NOVA, Nat Geo, MTV, North6, H&M, Google and more. We are the only Studio and Fab shop east of Mexico City and the only professional provider of Lighting, Grip and Electric in the market.  Photo: Two really tired people complete fabbing out a trick changing booth for Chris Hensley on The Illusionists Tour.
