"Whenever they are involved it is like having a right-hand man available to handle those tasks that I can't tackle. From the initial meeting to the final tear down day, GhostLight works very hard to ensure our event is a success.
Having worked with several production and lighting companies in Cleveland over the past 10 years, I truly believe GhostLight is top notch. We will continue to work with GhostLight in the future."

Great Lakes Science Center
"The preview opening for BODY WORLDS 2 was important for the Great Lakes Science Center and for the city. This controversial and important exhibition garnered overwhelming support from our city's healthcare delivery systems, so it was critical that every detail would surpass these generous sponsors' expectations. Deb Hermann and her team worked tirelessly with our staff and stakeholders ‐ from initial planning through the event itself and then the follow up ‐ to make sure the exhibition was positioned perfectly.”
- Linda Abraham Silver (Former President and Executive Director)
"I have worked with Dave Shimp since the early 1980s when I was promoting national live concerts and Dave served as my Production Manager. He provided me with production guidance during Nine Inch Nails' early touring years as well. I have always found Dave to be highly motivated and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of production and would recommend him without question to anyone who required a highly professional and accomplished production manager."

Tri-Point Teleproductions, Inc., Motion Cam Videos & Websites, Inc.
"I've known David Shimp since mid 1994 and his creativity, technical know how and production management skills have been critical to the success of the monthly corporate events that we did for years. We could always count on him to bring something new to the table but always with the same dedication to customer service and budget-conscious thinking. You want someone to handle your event production who you can count on to get it done the right way, on time, on budget. This is where GhostLight Productions shines... making you look good and your clients happy!”
- Tim Allinson (Owner, President)
"Deb has a knack for bringing to life a concept that leaves a lasting impression. Her ability to 'think outside the box' has helped us to create two events over the last two years that exceeded our revenue and participation goals.”

The Human Fund
“For the last two years The Human Fund has had the pleasure of working with GhostLight Productions to create spectacular museum quality exhibitions at our annual fundraiser and art exhibition. With approximately $1.5 million dollars of art on view at our first event, we had to be very selective in our choice of the company we used. GhostLight completely understood both the technical aspects and the conceptual needs.
In year two, GhostLight collaborated with the exhibition curators to produce an homage to Andy Warhol. Arts patrons were completely immersed in the work, life, and social milieu of Warhol. Volunteers directing guests all wore Warhol wigs, wayfarer sunglasses and all-black attire. We asked GhostLight to do more than produce events. We asked them to produce an event and design museum quality exhibitions, which not only needed to be thoughtfully conceived but interactive, fun, and engaging. They rose to the challenge!”

Sebo Video Graphics
“I have known David Shimp for over 10 years. He has earned a reputation in the business that is second to none and has a scope of talent and experience that covers just about every lighting and sound requirement there is. Now that he and Deb Hermann have formed their own company, I have had the opportunity to contract with them when I need top notch lighting design, production and installation services for my own clients. Not only are they creative and talented, but they are responsive and committed to delivering the best client service possible. Working with GhostLight Productions is always a positive experience and I know that my clients are getting the best in the business.”
