Make an Impact for your Fundraising Event!


beyond-non-profit-dallas-fundraisers-lighting-video-audio-visual_5With BEYOND being located in one of the nation’s most philanthropic cities we love participating with several fundraising events throughout the year. We help create a big impact through our lighting, audio visual, film, and video dance floor to help your event to stand out.  You want your event to make an impression so it can inspire donors to open their wallets and come back year after year in support of their favorite causes. 

When producing a fundraiser often non-profits want to think of a way to stand out and make their event unique. An effective way to create a feel for the theme of the event is through lighting. BEYOND can match the colors of your theme and light the ballrooms or event space to help create the mood and atmosphere you wish to achieve.  One way to achieve this is creating custom pattern projections such as projecting a wooden pattern on the alls for a western themed event. 



With each fundraising event having hundreds of attendees you want to make sure they are all able to hear and see. One way to insure those attending are able to see and hear everything is by adding screens as well as image magnification of the speakers or presenters. By adding screens to your event you can highlight the sponsors logos by playing a video of them on the screen on a continual loop throughout the event. With lighting and video the organization can save money by reducing their use of signage by also projecting their logos on walls or sides of buildings through gobo lights. this way they are able to reuse the gobos year after year. 



Just a few of the fundraisers BEYOND has participated in this year are the Chick Lit Luncheon  benefitting Community Partners of Dallas, Children First an evening with Unicef, North Texas Food Banks Harvest, and one of the upcoming fundraisers is for American Cancer Society’s Cattle Baron’s Ball which is the world’s largest single-night fundraiser for American Cancer Society

Modern Luxury Bride Feature-Emily & Andrew



With Fall beginning this week and October just around the corner we wanted to showcase one of our weddings from last October featured in the Fall/Winter 2016 Modern Luxury Brides Dallas magazine. For Emily and Andrew’s wedding reception at the Brook Hollow Country Club BEYOND provided cross spots on the tall floral arrangements to provide lighting for guests during dinner, pin spots on the low floral arrangements to showcase the floral design, soft controlled uplighting around the ball room and a wash on the bride and grooms cake for presentation. It was great working with Planner Mathes & Co on this wedding along with The Garden Gate for floral, Frosted Art Bakery for cakes, Rentals from Perch Event Decor, Linens from BBJ Linen, Entertainment by Jordan Kahn Music Company, Hair by Sonia Trevino and Makeup by My Fabulous Faces

BEYOND’s Custom DJ Booth



With the BEYOND custom DJ Booth we are able to meet your audio visual needs. Our custom DJ Booth sits on a riser and holds a 55 inch high definition TV screen. The Booth itself is 42 inches high and when placed on the riser it sits at approximately 6.5 feet. With the DJ Booth and riser painted white it makes for clean background that can be easily customized. The riser can be customized with a companies logo or graphics. For a wedding you can use a couple’s monogram. On the TV you can show anything from your logo for branding, a slide show and videos or movies. Most recently at the D Magazine Best of Big D event we had a go pro stationed above the custom DJ Booth and on the TV screen below the DJ we projected the DJ himself spinning. To inquire about our custom DJ Booth  for your next event head on over to our contact form.

Get to Know the BEYOND Video Team


Lightly Photography 2015
Last week we introduced you to the video team and you saw why the video team loves doing what they do. This week we want you to get to  know more about the faces behind the cameras.  We first have Melissa Weyer our Video Production Manager who will be celebrating 10 years with BEYOND this October. Melissa began her career in Maryland attending Howard Community College majoring in Business Management. Next we have Judy Philips our Associate Video Department Manager who will have been with BEYOND 6 years this November. Judy studied Digital Media at the Art Institute of Dallas. Our newest video team member who has now been with BEYOND for 2 years this past August is Whitney Cochran our Video Specialist. Whitney attended the University of Oklahoma majoring in Broadcasting and Electronic Media.

Each member of the video teams unique backgrounds and experiences helps them to work seamlessly together. Melissa’s background in business management as well as her previous work in the hospitality industry and office environments allows her to lead the video team with her attention to detail and assigning tasks to the team. She makes sure nothing is missed not only on the wedding but throughout the editing process. Judy’s background in digital media helps her as she films to visualize the end product prior to going into the editing of a video.  With Whitney coming from live sports programming it helped prepare her to be ready for anything on the day of the wedding where she is ready to capture all the emotional moments that can occur.  With each of their diverse set of skills it allows them to view the wedding day and editing process through their own creative eye and together they transform the footage from the wedding day into beautifully crafted stories. 

During their free time Melissa, Judy & Whitney each enjoy spending time in the outdoors. Melissa enjoys having a cold drink anywhere with a view with her husband Justin. Judy enjoys camping and attending concerts and festivals with her girlfriend and Whitney likes to go to the lake where she enjoys paddle boarding and wake boarding. Each of them is also a proud pet parent. Melissa has 3 dogs at home with Justin, Judy has her cat Jack who is famous on Instagram and Whitney has 2 chocolate labs named Bear and Charlie as well as her cat Harley.
