The company was owned by Shelly North. Splashes Creative Services offered stage hardware and equipment services. Splashes had been listed in the Construction category of Motion Picture Set Design & Construction. The company had allegedly been contracted to provide services on Musha Cay, David Copperfield’s island–part of the Exuma chain–in the southern Bahamas. Musha Cay is located 85 miles southeast of Nassau.
