About us..... Production Company Has Flair of Hollywood
It's party time in Miami Beach. Cheers and applause ring out from the opulent banquet
room of a resort hotel where a corporate party is enjoying an ecstatic evening of multi-media
entertainment. In the front of the room a full orchestra is recreating the familiar sounds
of Hollywood show tunes while glittering dancers glide across an illuminated stage to dazzle the
audience with the colors, forms and frenzy of high-energy choreography...
It's a beautiful, lazy afternoon in Santee. Over three thousand people are milling around
the lush green countryside of the seven Santee Lakes, snacking on hot dogs and popcorn, and tapping
their toes to the tunes of down-home country music. Out on the lakes, families are smiling and
pedaling as they tour the lakes in those two-seater paddleboats you used to see at the resorts in the mountains...
In the Golden Triangle, it's business as usual for Hollywood South Productions. Whether
they're choreographing a national convention show, planning a "Day at the Lakes", or producing a
grand event with a fun theme, this versatile San Diego company puts the fun and flair of a Hollywood
production into all its events.
Founded in 1982 by vivacious owner Susan Clifton, Hollywood South Productions is a full service
production company for all types of productions, including but not limited to theme parties,
entertainment packages, press parties, fundraisers, and receptions for corporate meetings.
Promotions and events masterminded by Hollywood South Productions have made their impact.
Critics and clients agree and have acknowledged Clifton. The San Diego Communicating Arts
Group has recognized her work in broadcast productions and national Toyota awarded one of Clifton's
promotional events entitled "The New Season's Winning Lineup", top honors. It was produced to
announce the arrival of new cars at Rose Toyota in San Diego in grand way.
The 1,500 people who attended the on-site event saw a grand show of Toyota new cars, a
performance by the San Diego Symphony string quartet, guest appearances by media celebrities and
members of the San Diego Chargers, and a fall high-fashion show.
The event was quite unique for a car dealership," Clifton says, "and especially exciting for
Toyota because several new cars were ordered that night."
Clifton goes on to say "my favorite event has to be the opening of the Bookstar in the Old
Loma Theatre". Approximately 4,000 customers attended the grand opening, highlighted with
a '40s flair that included a live 17-piece big band, antique cars, a caricaturist, balloons,
"old Hollywood" style decor, a 1940's style USO dance exhibition, desserts, and beverages.
Councilman Ron Roberts led the relighting ceremony of the old Loma neon sign with a proclamation
declaring the Loma Theatre a historical landmark; henceforth, "February 24th will be Loma Day".
Best of all, the revenues for the opening week of the bookstore exceeded their
projections by 60%.
What makes Hollywood South Productions so different? Clifton responds with enthusiasm,
"Our events are fun with an element of style and panache. They make a lasting impression."
She continues in a more serious vein, "We know how to blend exciting and entertaining ideas.
We spark interest with entertainment and the use of just the right props and decor to set the ambiance.
This combination succeeds in getting the message across in an unobtrusive way."
What's in the future for Hollywood South Productions? "It's exciting," Clifton says with a
smile, "We're growing and continuing to work with excellent companies in Southern California.
It's good to reflect, and to look to the future with ancitipation... to continue to work hard and
make a difference in the needs of our various clients. The last 30 years of business have
been years of great successes... for us and our clients. I'm proud to be part of such an exciting
Our motto is "When its flair you want, ask around... or ask us... Hollywood South."
