how it works

Looking to build a long-term relationship with our team as a production partner? We offer reduced retainer rates on a case-by-case basis for recurring clients on an exclusivity basis.

Reach out to our team to learn more.

Our typical retainer clients include live music venues, theatres, and event venues such as universities.

If entering a retainer contract with Good Company Productions, our technical team will undergo a full orientation of your space, fill any necessary gaps with our own equipment, and step in to act as your in-house production team on-demand for third party rentals, events, etc.

Live Audio Technicians: our technicians are experienced in live audio for events ranging in scale from 50-500 attendees. We can work with single speakers, full bands, and everything in between; our crew is uniquely tuned into working in non-treated spaces (ie. rooms that are not traditionally treated as venues) and will take the time and care required to get the space sounding as clean as possible for your event.

Live Lighting Technicians: our lighting technicians can work with house consoles, operate our basic production packages to add colour to your event, or work with you to design bespoke lighting rigs and arrangements specific to your event, pulling from our wide range of lighting equipment in-house.

Production & Talent Management: for events of a larger scale, specialized Production and Talent Managers on our can come on board as part of the organizing committee leading up to your event, consulting on the development of the event, and working on the day-of to manage all crew, talent, and production.

Standard crew rates are as follows; exceptions may be possible in unique circumstances for community, charity, and fundraiser events, or for pilot events which we can get behind.

All rates are +HST. A half day is considered 0-4 hours on-site, while a full day is 4-8 hours on site. Overtime is anything over 8 hours. We can work with you to estimate required time on-site.
