Collective Works is a brand new creative visual design practice launched by three
highly talented and respected live event production industry professionals –
Christopher Bolton, Joshua Cutts and Bradley Hilton.

All are well known for their work in South Africa and across the African continent.

Bringing all the energy and vibrancy of the region to an international marketplace,
the trio specialise in the disciplines of lighting, video and set / scenic design and
digital content production.

They have known one another and worked together in different capacities for some
time, designing and delivering a variety of high profile music shows, live events,
theatrical and TV productions.

Sharing this vast experience plus the core values of passion for their work,
imagination, creative flair and the ability to think “out-of-the-box’ in creating
extraordinary audience experiences, Collective Works is a new and exciting

It offers clients an enthusiastic and innovative approach to live show and event
design – whatever the genre, scenario, size and budget of the project.

From the raw material of fresh ideas, to the complex modelling of 3D and virtual
simulations, to the equipment specification and co-ordination, client liaison, lighting
and video programming delivery and execution on site, Collective Works will
provide a complete creative service for those wanting great looking shows.

“There is a great chemistry and fluidity of ideas and thoughts between all of us’
says Bolton, explaining that while Collective Works is a really natural synergy
between the three of them, their totally different personality attributes and
characters add yet more to the dynamics of the team.

With three strong creative minds, projects requiring full technical design lighting,
video and set – including automation – is the key target.

At the essence of Collective Works is using a variety of technologies wisely and
appropriately to help communicate with audiences, bringing narratives,
performances, presentations, installations, public art and any other form of
expression alive with visual magic like vast projections, incredible set architecture,
pixel mapping or amazing lighting … ensuring the emotion and drama of the
moment is captured and remains infinitely memorable.

Immediate work confirmed in the months ahead includes Afrikaans is Groot and
Starlight Classics, both in Cape Town and the 2017 series of The Voice.
