Mission


"We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when creating them."

-Albert Einstein

 

OUr mission is to design, enhance and integrate live experiences and translate those experiences to the widest possible audience.

Lucid Creative exists at the juncture between creativity, technical understanding, and detail oriented results. Our goal is to raise the level of creative discourse across the entertainment industry, and bring the most effective solutions to bear on even the most intimidating creative challenges.

We work in a wide array of fields, from corporate events, to installations, to music touring, and we constantly aim to apply the best techniques across all these disciplines. By understanding a broad range of topics, we can more effectively communicate across disciplines, and allow everyone to operate more effectively. 

Excellence is our calling card, and we only do work we are proud of. Our passion for technology, steered by a desire to "do it right, or not at all" has guided us well to this point, and we don't intend to change.

Who are We


Who are we?

Who are We


Who are we?

Nick Fletcher

Nick has always been passionate
about (read: slightly obsessed with) “what’s next?”

Whether discussing politics, psychology, or technology, Nick has always been asking bigger questions than he knew how to answer about how we can do things better than we have in the past.

These interests were given an outlet in high school when Nick
was volunteer/employee number one at a newly founded public access TV station. Building this technological embodiment of the first amendment fully quenched his geeky thirst for technology while also giving him a taste for the power that the freedom of the press
can have on a small community.

After outgrowing the small town scene, Nick began a six year march up the ladder of the technical live production world. In an industry with few speed limits, Nick’s tenacity, thirst for knowledge, and calm under pressure made it possible to start as a local stagehand, and now, just
a few years later, be entrusted with control over some of the world’s largest shows.

From concept design to programming, Nick is constantly full of ideas. With his work as a video director and lighting programmer, as well as creative designer, he brings a wide-ranging breadth of information to any discussion. Highly talented in system programming and engineering, no project is too daunting for him, not even with a grueling overnight schedule.

Kyle Bjordahl

Even at an early age, Kyle was
always curious about the inner
workings of the world around him, tearing apart his parents’ stereo system at the age of three. This innate desire to understand how things work has carried through to his leadership
of Lucid’s research and development practices, where he helps create elegant solutions to problems new and old. From optimizing the management and pipeline of a team of animators, to
creating new and even more immersive experiences through the use of game engines and custom software, Kyle is eager to tackle any new puzzle with vigor.

Starting out as a theater kid, Kyle quickly took the reigns of his high school auditorium, becoming the de-facto resource for lighting and sound needs throughout his four years there.  From there, he went on to
earn a BFA in Film Production from Chapman University, and while he
has yet to actually work on a film since graduating, he informs Lucid’s
creative decisions with artistic perspective and rigorous technical insight, and also provides a bridge of communication to other
disciplines, including theater, animation and cinematography.

As a designer, draftsman and 3D workflow specialist, Kyle helps to bring projects to fruition with a combination of visual effects and computer science skill sets; from content creation to system designs and schematics, Kyle is heavily involved in the preproduction process, as well as on site as a programmer and engineer.
