About Us

Educators. Artisans. Storytellers.

 

Formerly named Hall Associates Flying Effects, Vertigo is the only professional flying effects company founded by and headed by professional educators. Our company was formed through a strong commitment to education, research, and training in special effects rigging, and our growth and success can be attributed largely to our continued dedication to safety, innovation, and collaboration.

We were the first company (and only sustaining company) to sponsor annual workshops on flying effects by the North American Association of Flying Effects Directors. Our annual TOP Flight workshops have been held in many locations across the country, and attended by current and prospective employees of each of the major flying companies, Hollywood stunt men, and employees of companies such as Cirque du Soleil and Disney. Our dedication to training and education is not limited to the classroom. Our highly qualified flying directors frequently conduct workshops and speak to students at all levels about theatre technology, rigging, and special effects.
