Spearheaded by lighting and sound wizard Jono Harry, INTENSE has quickly become one of the leading audio visual companies in Hawke’s Bay since opening in 2005.
Senior Sound and Lighting Engineer
Becoming a sound and lighting engineer wasn’t so much of a career choice as a calling for Jono. He blew his first fuse at age seven, and had so many electric shocks that his hair now stands up naturally.
Un-phased by these setbacks, he has tinkered with lighting and sound equipment ever since. By secondary school, Jono was already rigging light and sound for school balls, events and musicals. Fifteen years on, he has done everything from touring with bands around Australia to managing crews of technicians working on large events.
Jono at Intense is great (to put it simply). We have worked with Jono for several charity events at the rescue helicopter hangar. Each time Jono has provided expert guidance and technical support which has meant the event has run smoothly – which is exactly what you need. Jono also goes the extra mile to ensure the event is a success and does it with a smile!

Huge shout out to Intense! I was looking for something different, and Jono knocked it out of the park. If you're after a creative environment, get in touch. It's more than just sound and lighting, we created an experience that got so much attention. Love the creativity and ideas! 🙂

Jono and the team at Intense have a great awareness of what it takes to create an awesome environment! Their advice, professionalism and cutting edge technical support ensure that our events and environments look and perform as they should! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for your next technical upgrade or event’s sound and lighting!

Jono and the team at Intense are a great and friendly bunch to work with. They went all the way helping kit us out for a wedding. Jono’s expertise was super helpful to choose the equipment we needed, and kindly threw in some extras, to make sure the day went off without a hitch. Thanks team!
