When digital cinematography, immersive sound design, motion graphics, animation, archival footage, interactive technology, and other audiovisual elements are combined with imaginative storytelling, almost anything is possible. Viewers can be transported to the past. Inaccessible peaks can be climbed. Complex geological or mechanical processes can be revealed. Time can be accelerated or slowed down.

HFC audiovisual producers and equipment specialists are available to assist parks with a variety of tasks, from simple advice and technical support to turnkey project management that includes planning, budgeting, contracting, and developing complete AV programs and systems.
