About Laser F/X - Introduction
Laser F/X International was founded in 1976 by L. Michael Roberts who was attracted to the ethereal beauty and vivid colours produced by lasers.
Starting out with an argon laser and some open loop scanners, we provided services for rock bands, special events and corporate theatre. The laser systems have been continuously improved with the incorporation of new technology as it became available. This technology and artistic talent has allowed Laser F/X to score an impressive number of firsts:
Laser F/X is the pioneering laser display company in Canada with a 25 year record of providing exciting shows to our clients. We are very proud of originating the the Laser Dance Party and have given thousands of performances internationally. We now not only provided lasers, but also designed and choreographed the lighting at raves and dance parties, and provided production management services for some of these events.
The role of Laser F/X has been changing over the last
few years. When we originated the world's first Laser Clip Art
catalogue, we added some editorial content which proved popular. This
grew into the Laser Effects quarterly newsletter, predecessor to the on-line
Laser F/X Newsletter. The newsletter rapidly grew and involved us in
consulting and design work for manufacturers and publishing of our annual
Laser F/X is now the foremost provider of information
and resources on laser shows and displays through the www.LaserFX.com
site. Our public area provides valuable information on laser shows and how
they work in easy to understand language. Our Backstage area provides an
on-line newsletter, resources, technical archives, and other services
to laserists and laser hobbyists world wide.
NOTE: L. Michael Roberts is now semi-retired from the laser display business as he has accepted a position as Director Of Research for an R&D company in Goderich, Ontario. He still performs the occasional laser show, mostly for non-profit and charitable organizations.
