Based in Melbourne, ADDITIVE consists of Ben “Bosco” Shaw, Paul Lim and Tom Wright who between them offer an amazing range of skill sets. After years of working on productions and festivals around the world, these three experienced professionals, and close friends, have joined forces to harness their collective industry experience and technical knowledge.

ADDITIVE offer a very design driven production process, turning client ideas into an elegant and precise productions, custom to the client.

Meet the talented ADDITIVE team who are ready for a challenge:

Bosco is a lighting and set/space designer and builder. His interest is in work that involves bodies and movement, how light feeds across, and can influence, a space. Predominantly he sees his role within the development of works to propose and facilitate alternate lighting sources and means, so that an idea can evolve spatially and have subtle resonance.

Bosco has worked with large contemporary dance companies, intimate projects and individual artists, theatre works as well as designing and installing lighting for public spaces. He has travelled extensively in this capacity, has a background in drafting and is a passionate lover of beautiful buildings and fast motorbikes.

Training as a theatre stage manager in the UK gave Tom the grounding to understand how each department and individual plays a part in all productions, small or large. Always to be found chatting – to crew, artist and clients – he loves the conversations that working in the arts provides and enjoys nothing more than helping a project deliver its message to the audience.

He brings a wealth of technical knowledge, a love of lighting and broad experience in the delivery of large-scale music concerts and events to ADDITIVE.

Paul can be happily found either buried in stacks of scheduling and budgeting paperwork, or with a soldering iron in his hand, fixing circuit boards, there aren’t many aspects of putting on a show that Paul hasn’t tackled and succeeded in during his career.

He uses this multi-faceted knowledge, plus a keen interest in emerging technologies, to provide integrated solutions in theatres, festivals and events around the world.
