AMON TOBIN ISAM TOUR (Stage)
Brazilian music producer Amon Tobin commissioned this stage for his ISAM tour. It is a large scale interactive stage specifically designed for 3D visual projection, which requires extremely precise measurements and accuracy for the coordinates created in the 3D mapping program. The stage is also designed so it can be broken down and taken on tour in road cases.
The project itself took about five months to put together with the help of a crew of about 10 digital animators and another crew tasked with building the structure itself. This is one of 3 stages built.

14TH FACTORY LA (fabrication)
The 14th Factory LA was a monumental, multiple-media, socially engaged art installation conceived by the Hong Kong-based British artist Simon Birch. Taking over three acres of an empty industrial warehouse and lot on the outskirts of downtown Los Angeles, the location was transformed into a factory where Birch and his 20 creative collaborators worked and manufactured their art, creating an ever-changing immersive environment of 14 interlinked spaces comprised of video, installation, sculpture, paintings and performance.
SNDF supported in fabrication of several of the installations and the infrastructure of the space.

IT HOUSE HOLLYWOOD
If you go to “The It Experience,” you’ll find many Georgies, milling about a dilapidated old house that’s suddenly appeared at the corner of Hollywood and Vine, their faces obfuscated by their raincoats, carrying bobbing, red balloons. The magnificent facade of the house is a horror trope made incarnate: this is the house children dare each other to ding-dong-ditch on Halloween night.
SDNF fabricated the exterior of the haunted house.
Beyond Wonderland is an electronic dance festival organized by Insomniac Events. The event has been held in various locations across the west coast including Seattle, San Bernardino, and Mountain View spanning either one or two days.
