A Production Treatment is the touchstone, the initiation of a meaningful relationship between prospective clients and Western Enterprises. By definition, touchstone means an excellent quality or example used to test the excellence or genuineness of others. A treatment is a formal, serious, and informative document that takes a client through the steps of their particular production.

A Production Treatment is like a screenplay treatment in that it moves through acts of definition, presenting a planning blueprint for the client, illustrating the stages of development, the plot of the show, the main characters, the potential obstacles, and the glorious resolution. The Production Treatment provides the client cogent and illustrative information so that an intelligent choice or decision can be determined regarding the selection of a pyrotechnic company. Our hope is that the Production Treatment will allow potential clients to test Western’s excellence and genuineness regarding the proposed or potential production.

Every Production Treatment that we prepare is unique, and written specifically for the planned special event. The Treatment reflects the discussions, meetings, and planning that represents both Western Enterprises and the Client.
