Freckled Sky is a multimedia company that specializes in performances and events with digital special effects which include projection mappings. Freckled Sky was founded in Chicago in 2015 and gained popularity competing in America’s Got Talent show where their team demonstrated the world’s first interactive performance with a digital mapping on water. Since then, the company participated in a number of notable business, theater, and music events.
Freckled Sky was founded on February 24, 2015 in Chicago by Ukrainian immigrants Val Syganevich and his sister Katia Korobko. Before coming to the United States in November 2014, the duo participated in the Ukrainian league of KVN games (a humor TV improv which also included the future Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky) and ran one of the top ten Ukrainian event agencies. Syganevich considered his move to the United States as an opportunity to reach out to larger audiences. Syganevich and Korobko chose the name Freckled Sky (Ukrainian: Небо в ластовинні) after their father’s poetry collection of the same name. Freckled Sky’s debut was America’s Got Talent show in the summer of 2015 which gained the team popularity and favorable media coverage.
For the America’s Got Talent (season 10) auditions in 2015, Freckled Sky team cast two dancers, Olga Sokolova and Jalen Preston who danced in the artificial rain generated by a 15 by 20 feet (4.6 m × 6.1 m) water screen The audience and judges were stunned by a projection mapping on water – the world’s first interactive performance of this kind. Howard Stern who judged the auditions called Val Syganevich “a genius” and used his once-per-season Golden Buzzer to propel Freckled Sky team directly to the quarterfinals.
In the season of 2017, Freckled Sky produced special effects for Delaware Theater Company’s production of Ray Bradbury’s novel Something Wicked This Way Comes. The production was highly acclaimed by critics: WHYY-TV calling the effects “jaw-dropping”, The News Journal – “wowing the crowds”, and BroadwayWorld – “mind-boggling, nothing before ever seen”. Freckled Sky set up included 36 by 20 feet (11.0 m × 6.1 m) video wall, 16 intelligent moving lights, and a scrim, invisible to the audience – all combined to produce “stupefying, otherworldly special effects.”
Freckled Sky’s team is a mix of artistic creators and technology experts.
