What sets us apart?
Why has Paul Rubin been the leader in performer flying effects for more than 30 years? It is his dedication to his craft and his insightful, artistic approach. Paul is focused on the realism of the flying. He collaborates with the creative team to create the desired effects based upon the requirements of the script and the character’s motivation. The flying effects should not be separate from the story, but a continuation of the story telling…if it is done correctly. Once conceived, Paul’s experience allows him to understand what type of equipment will be most appropriate to bring the desired effect to fruition. No matter where you are in your production/design process, why settle for perfunctory, when Paul can bring inspiration to the table.
Since 1988, Paul has created some of Broadway’s most unforgettable flying effects. He has devised aerial design sequences for Broadway, Off-Broadway, and both National and International tours. Directors and producers have entrusted Paul with more than fifteen-hundred productions, in thirty-six different countries. It’s impossible to think of productions like Wicked, Peter Pan, or Fiddler on the Roof without reliving the wondrous, heart-lifting moments.
