Pacific Coast Entertainment is proud to proclaim its move to a new headquarters in Huntington Beach and the expansion of its service offerings beyond production equipment. PCE has announced the official launch of PCE Scenic Studios, a full-service scenic design and building facility located under the same roof.
Pacific Coast Entertainment is no stranger to set construction and design. The company originally built and designed many stage sets before deciding to focus on production. “Now with a larger facility, we’re able to start building sets again and incorporate where we started with where we are today,” said CEO, John Koukios.
PCE’s client base is made up of themed entertainment venues, corporate companies, theatrical touring companies, as well as local schools. PCE Scenic will be filling the void in the local Orange County market that has been abandoned by set building companies closing or moving locations over the years. “I’m excited about the new opportunity of expanding our service offerings to existing client base and reaching new clients throughout the local area,” said COO, Ryan Steidinger.
Pacific Coast Entertainment has been around since 2000 and seen steady growth. In 2012 PCE was ranked as one of the fastest growing companies in Orange County by the Orange County Business Journal. Koukios and
Steidinger have been working together since the very beginning and are both incredibly passionate about what they do and their company. They are looking forward to continued growth in 2013.
PCE’s new headquarters at 7601 Woodwind Drive in Huntington Beach is nearly 30,000 square feet. The new expansions will result in the hiring of warehouse and administrative staff. The larger facility allows inventory additions of AV equipment, lighting, and staging. The warehouse accommodates a state of the art scenic shop and designated space for show and tour prep. In addition, PCE’s new space will allow for improved stock of rental and sales items to better serve its customers.

Design teams from Pacific Coast Entertainment and BTB Events put months of planning into action at the iconic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for a Commitment Ceremony worth remembering. Designers transformed the historic ballroom into the ultimate ultra-lounge and fashion-forum. The impressive centerpiece to the event was the custom all-white, high-gloss head table extending 40′ in length and serving as a stylish entrance runway for the wedding party! After the newly-minted couple took their place on the multi-level, frosted acrylic stage, the fashion runway underwent a jaw-dropping transformation right before the guests’ eyes! A 40′ tabletop fully dressed with china, flatware and centerpieces descended from the rafters and landed gently on the runway-table… dinner was served!
Sharing the couple’s vision for an extraordinary experience was PCE’s Technical Director, Tim Hemrich. Tim’s vision for the “flying tabletop” emerged as the stylish solution. The production benefited from the trust engendered in the design and technical teams as well as their ability to understand the hopes and dreams of their clients.
Also at play in this dreamscape:
Arkaos Media Master, Chrisite HD Projectors, Impression 120′s, PowerSpot 700 CMY’s, Source four Pars & Lekos, ETC Dimming, Road Hog, Shure Wireless, LED Event Panel, Custom Tile Backdrop, CM LoadStar Motors, Motion Labs Distro, Whisper Watt Location Power, 400′ Global Truss… and oh yeah, a flying table!

2012 may be in the rearview mirror, but Red Digital Cinema’s holiday party continues to captivate and for those lucky enough to attend, Red put on a great show! Orange County’s Great Park played host to the fire and ice themed production, allowing designers from Swellegant and Pacific Coast Entertainment to craft the surreal transformation. With a short window of time to install, Tim Hemrich and the team from Pacific Coast Entertainment, undertook the mission of rigging 200+ feet of truss in the historic structure, as well as installed all lighting, audio, power, and special effects for the 3:00pm opening. On-hand for the festivities were some of the biggest names in entertainment: QSC, EAW, Yamaha, Elation, ETC, High-End Systems, CM LoadStar and many more!
PCE wishes to thank our friends at Red Digital Cinema, Swellegant, Essence Entertainment, OCGP and those guys who brought in the truckloads of real snow! See you all again in 2013!

Household brand name Dannon brings its staff to San Diego, for a healthy dose of brand immersion. Our friends at ‘The Perfect Party’ were tasked with bringing Team-Dannon’s vision to life with brand-centric transformations to the venue’s meeting and exposition spaces. Pacific Coast Entertainment’s Tim Hemrich served as the shows technical director and from the beginning, provided technical design and integration for this high-profile marketing event. The show benefited greatly from The Perfect Party’s unparalleled talent and PCE’s massive inventory of audio, video and lighting equipment. With such a potent array of tools on-hand, PCE was able to keep costs under control, by drawing entirely on rental inventory to outfit the show. In an experiential marketing event, where design drives the message, this approach presents a serious challenge for smaller production companies, whose limited supplies often result in expensive
purchases by the client, whether they know it or not.
Everyday PCE meets these challenges and out-shines the competition. Next time, let us shine for you!

"Who Shot Rock & Roll"
KCRW and The Annenberg Space for Photography close out their concert series with R&B Icon “Raphael Saadiq” and British rockers “Band of Skulls”. The series, produced in-concert, with Annenberg’s exhibition “Who Shot Rock & Roll”, a tribute to rock’s leading photo chroniclers, played to capacity crowds over the span of four weeks. PCE’s Tim Hemrich, whose previous work with Raphael Saadiq, made PCE the “go to” for the show’s video production. KCRW’s boundless enthusiasm and support of music and the arts, stands as a peerless example of the importance of public radio in the lives of the communities they serve. Look to Pacific Coast Entertainment as a peerless example of design and production for those we serve.

The 17th annual VIBE Dance Competition (the longest running hip hop competition on the West Coast) had another amazing year and PCE was called upon again to serve as the reliable production provider.
Put on by Lambda Theta Delta at the UCI Bren Events Center, VIBE’s purpose is philanthropic – but they sure know how to host a night of unforgettable entertainment! Like previous years, PCE provided full production including an LED video wall, flown above the stage with custom imagery designed for VIBE; eight Elation Powerspot moving lights to illuminate the entire stage; and many conventional fixtures for extra radiance. PCE’s Januel “Boomer” Luna was the onsite Production Manager; Mark Pearce mixed audio; and Shawn “Beaver” Southard designed lights on the Road Hog. Luna said, “The client was happy to have us back again, and we really enjoyed the show!”
Congratulations to this year’s VIBE Champions, Choreo Cookies (3-Peat)!!
