The Short Version:
Technology-Infused Creative Production and Engineering

In plainest English, we're a full service brick-and-mortar production group with an in-house creative engineering division.
From global-reach film and television to cutting-edge mixed reality to world-first experiential, bringing creative and technical teams together is at the core of what we do.
But arming storytellers with the robotics, the motion control, the virtual reality, the projection mapping, the volumetric capture -- the ability to invent the uninvented -- is what makes us Practical Magic.


Creative + Production + Engineering

Television Production

We develop and produce film and television for international distribution, working both commissioned and on license. We have shows airing in countries all over the world.

Virtual Reality / Volumetric Media

We've been in VR since before the hype, having designed early VR camera rigs for Google, to recently producing "Grease AR" for Paramount, a highly ambitious volumetric production at Intel Studios.

Next-Gen Reality Competition

Our unique work on Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's "The Runner" and the CW Network's Hunger-Games-esque' reality show "Capture" enabled high-tech, futuristic competition gameplay never before possible on TV.

Experiental Engineering

Our Clio-winning "The Meg: Submersive VR Experience" put real people in a traveling, partially submerged VR experience, designed and manufactured on-site in our Burbank facility.
