We Engineer Emotion
Our passion for smart solutions and innovative design positions us at the forefront of SFX development.
We work across all the physical elements; water, flame, air, aroma, atmospherics, applying our ingenuity to create hardware solutions which make these elements perform often in unnatural ways.
From our 8500 sqft workshop located in the heart of the South West we operate a carefully curated manufacturing facility, reputed to be the envy of many industry and film professionals!
We have invested in our state of the art fabrication equipment in order to meet project demands, whether it’s scaling up production for volume builds, responding to large scale custom projects or prototyping concepts which can quickly turn into functional machines.
A Unique Team
Leading the Luminous team are founders Mike Badley and Edwin Samkin, both qualified engineers and both having built their experience from the ground-up in high-end movie (Bond, Star Wars), TV special effects and large-scale ceremonies. The pair met through their work in London during the 2000’s and continued to pursue different avenues within entertainment production before the formation of Luminous.
Their combined experience brings a unique understanding of the stakeholders involved in creating and running global productions, whether it’s touring or permanent.
