The Little Things

We are in the middle of the busy season here at Satyr Entertainment. It’s the busy season because of a combination of things that all come together during this time of year in Arizona. First, the school year is drawing to a close, and that means proms, graduations, and grad nights. Second, spring wedding season is in full effect. And third, the weather is great, so events of all types are taking place, like CRUSH at the Tucson Museum of Art.
This time of year is packed with things to do, and it keeps everyone busy. Sometimes it’s hard to catch your breath in the rush of things, or in our case, catch up on sleep. But no matter how busy things get, we don’t lose sight of all the tiny details that make up an event- and can mean the difference between a good event and a GREAT event.
A good example is one of our recent weddings. The ceremony was held in a beautiful courtyard, with trees overhead for shade, native landscaping, and soft light. It was really pretty. But it was also a mess. The courtyard was paved with cement, and the plants and trees had dropped leaves everywhere. It was in no shape for a wedding ceremony. So after setting up our sound system, we swept up all the leaves. Definitely not in our job description, but definitely part of our commitment to producing successful events.
High school proms can be such big productions that the little things can easily be overlooked, but they can be really important. From moving tables for better spacing and flow, to making sure the stage is close to the dance floor, to creating specific lighting cues for different parts of the night, we tend to obsess over every little detail. House lights are easily overlooked, but we make sure they are dimmed for effect, or off if they can’t be dimmed.
Little things are important- we fully believe that. No matter how busy things get, we don’t forget the little things.
