More on HELA Productions
Beginning as a dynamic voice in the world of Los Angeles Escape Rooms, HELA Productions quickly set itself apart with its use of live performers interacting with the escapees and a strong sense of narrative justification. From there the company has branched out into other forms of immersive storytelling, from shows that still maintain elements of their Escape Room roots, to more stylized limited engagement narrative pieces, to curated lounges with an immersive twist.
HELA plans to continue to broaden its fanbase by cultivating free membership benefits for those interested in staying informed of their upcoming projects including special offers and invitations as well as extending their narrative reach by crafting ARGs to compliment their ticketed events. As they continue to generate their own material, HELA will also offer their services towards creating immersive environments and experiences for corporate events, etc.
