Pushing Pixels Since 2007
Founded in 2007 by Danny Whetstone, a 20+ year industry veteran, DWP LIVE is known for excellent customer support, devoted expert staff, and consistent quality. DWP LIVE’s expert team of programmers, projectionists, and technicians has helped produce shows all over the globe.
In 2012, the versatility of DWP LIVE was highlighted in venue, application, and audience with two high profile events: Beyoncé’s “I Was Here” music video projected inside the United Nations General Assembly Hall for World Humanitarian Day and the Super Bowl XLVI halftime show featuring Madonna. DWP LIVE helped execute projection mapping pieces in 2015 for the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals launch, the World Meeting of Families with Pope Francis in Philadelphia, Adele Live in New York City at Radio City Music Hall, and much, much more. DWP LIVE celebrated its first permanent install in New York City at Radio City Music Hall for the Rockette’s New York Summer Spectacular and Christmas revues in 2016.
Also in 2016, DWP LIVE spread its wings and square footage moving into a 33,000 square foot, custom renovated building in Nashville. Now with all facilities under one roof, our expert team is focused on heightened excellence and continued growth.
Through our advocate clients and amazing team, we know that we can ACHIEVE great things. We strive daily to live this acronym: Accountability-Communication-Harmony-Efficiency-Integrity-Versatility-Excellence.
