Lightship was named after the formable Nantucket, one of the many lightships that were commissioned by the US Coast Guard to ward ships off dangerous rocks and shoals in the worst storms. Later decommissioned, founder Andy Perrott would marvel at the Nantucket in Boston Harbor, at Southstreet Seaport in Manhattan and on Nantucket Island. The stately vessel and its brave missions inspired Perrott to name his entertainment company Lightship in 1999.
Lightship is primarily recognized for its many television credits including the Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade, a celebrity driven special produced for ABC/Disney which garnered Lightship the Best Special Emmy Award. Through the years, Lightship has developed and produced series and specials for Animal Plant, Travel Channel, Destination America, HSN, Discovery and MTV.
Lightship found success in television and video production through authentic storytelling that would often engage viewers through humor and emotion. With the growth of video and it’s power to grab the attention of TV viewers and consumers in the same way, Lightship expanded its services to handle the complex production needs of major corporate clients and non-profits.
