nightly spectacular is creating imagery you’ve never seen before, combined with music that stirs you emotionally. powerful combination that makes a lasting impression.


It’s a


How much of a project do you complete off-site vs on-site? We refer to it as location-based entertainment for a reason, because shows work best when they are designed for a specific location. Where we bring the place alive through storytelling, music, and technology. Creating moments that can’t be seen or experienced anywhere else. When fireworks go off overhead, you don’t just see them, you hear their percussive impact and you even feel it in your chest. It’s a great feeling to be with thousands of people, all sharing the same moment, and experiencing something magical together. I think there is value to that. So sure, we can do a lot of design and planning in the studio, but when the production starts, our team has to be on the ground, on-site. Our shows typically involve dozens, sometimes hundreds, of creative, technical and physical production team members from concept to completion.


What is the Miziker company ethos? The Miziker Entertainment mission is storytelling. Our work process is artistry. Our goal is for the work to be invisible, so that only the magic of the moment is seen and felt by audiences.


Which trade shows do you think are most valuable? We attend IAAPA, the Asian Attractions Expo, LDI, Comicon, TransWorld Halloween, CES, and The Special Event show. We are also big supporters of the TEA. I am on the International Board, and we participated in the TEA Summit last year.


What can the world look forward to from Miziker in 2018 and beyond? Reinventing the circus. Pushing the envelope of entertainment aboard cruise ships. Exciting new day and nighttime parades. Expanding ¡Mas Fiesta! – our kinetic figures company. And creating a major projection mapping project.

Ryan’s top picks from Miziker’s back catalogue of projects


Lights of Liberty, 2000. A five act show which allows visitors to experience the American Revolution across four city blocks at Independence National Historical Park in historic Philadelphia. “Lights of Liberty was the first-ever


permanent sound and light projection mapping show in the United States. For the show, which ran for nearly a decade, we created projection of historical scenes on the sides of some of the country’s most historically significant buildings. Power of NightFire, 2006. A tale


of Native American folklore filled with magic, humor and heart and featuring thrilling special effects, water fountains, lasers, pyrotechnics and more. “A live performer interacted with


the first ever digital puppet, waterscreen projection, with programmed fountain.”
