Enhance your guest experience with sights and sounds

Enhance your guest experience with sights and sounds

From the Idaho Business Review

Music is powerful. It has the ability to make you feel happy, sad or even nervous. Filmmakers know this, which is why they use music to enhance the images on the screen. In a horror movie, music is often the signal to the audience that the girl on screen should absolutely not open that basement door. In comedies and dramas alike, upbeat songs play as heroes ride off into the sunset. Lighting helps tell the story in these movies as well. That basement door the girl is about to open likely isn’t in a well-lit hallway. And that sunset our heroes are riding into? It’s created by good lighting. Just as filmmakers enhance the enjoyment of their films with these elements, you can utilize music and lighting to enhance the experience guests have at your events. Here are a few ways to ensure you’re setting the right mood.
