Principles Chris & Carol Shaw formed Elemental Effects in March of 2005.

Chris, an Orlando native, took his inspiration from Disney and it's influence on the local arts community. His involvement in the arts started at an early age with music and voice.  Chris' professional career began in 1981 as a lighting and audio technician at a local theater, he went on to serve as technical director and consultant for several Central Florida theater troupes.  Since 1981, Chris has worked in many areas of entertainment including audio engineering for live and studio, lighting design, scenic design and construction, film & TV production, stage management and pyrotechnics.  Prior to beginning E2, Chris spent 14 years as the lead designer and project manager for Orlando Special Effects.

Carol, originally from central Pennsylvania, grew up in the shadow of the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire and Hershey Park, where she worked for several seasons. Carol earned a AA in psychology from the Penn State University. Since moving to Florida, Carol has held administrative positions at the Orange County School Board and a local commercial electrical contractor. Carol now serves as vice president and administrator for E2.

 Chris, Carol and the rest of our production team look forward to working with you to make your Imagination become Reality.
