announces the formation of the company’s new Events & Exhibits group, formed to produce temporary projects for the sports, special events, branded entertainment, and corporate production markets. Headed by executive director and partner Joe Zenas, formerly with Universal Studios where he was director of the Creative Studio and live show producer for the past three years.
Thinkwell’s Events & Exhibits group launched with its first project, the Pre- and Post-Game Shows for the 2003 Super Bowl in San Diego featuring Santana and Bon Jovi. Zenas served as associate producer and designer for the shows.
“We are very excited to announce this new capacity for Thinkwell,” says Zenas. “With the Super Bowl Pre- and Post-Game Shows under our belts and our involvement in new productions starting up, Thinkwell’s Events & Exhibits group is already on the way to becoming a preeminent company in our field.”
“Creating the Events & Exhibits group at Thinkwell with Joe Zenas to head this group is the next logical step in the growth of Thinkwell,” says Cliff Warner, founding partner of Thinkwell. “Joe brings years of production expertise to bear. We’re extremely pleased with the additional capabilities and services we can now offer to both our existing clients and future customers seeking a ‘boutique’ group with an unique creative perspective on temporary projects.”
Zenas has years of production experience with Radio City Productions, Don Mischer Productions, MTV, and The Walt Disney Company. He has been involved in some of the world’s most visible events in the last ten years, including the Opening & Closing Ceremonies of the 1996 Atlanta Olympics, the 1997 spectacular celebrating Hong Kong’s reunification with China, and NetAid, among others.
