About US

in the beginning…

Lightbox started as a technical specialist supplier, back in 2003.  For Roland, brainchild and founder, the purpose was to source unique answers to industry creative challenges. Over the years Lightbox has partnered with several great industry thinkers, always pushing the boundaries on what was thought do-able.  With time,  our product offering has changed to where we now offer both in-part, or in-full event turn-key services.  We work well with other agencies, complementing their strengths with our own, or, we work as a Stand-alone entity delivering all things required within the scope of the brief.

roland speaks…

I started my events industry career at the age of only 15 in a little amateur theatre in Somerset West called The Playhouse.

After trying out everything from acting to fly gallery, I settled on the technical aspect of the show and went on to spend 10 years with Gearhouse SA at their CPT branch.

I resigned from Gearhouse in 2002 after filling the position of HOD Lighting, where I worked as both management and creative.  My love for lighting design expanded to the full production and in 2003 I made the move to Johannesburg and started up Lightbox Productions.

I’ve always had a passion for bringing new, cutting-edge technologies and ideas to South Africa’s event stages and I’ve worked on some of the most spectacular launches and events around South Africa for the last fourteen years, doing just that.

I have been involved in the industry for over 20 years, and I can tell you that I look forward to the next 20!
