I’m sure you have all noticed like I have that there is a big difference in lighting and production from one club to the next. Sometimes they are mediocre and sometimes they are amazing. I wanted to take this opportunity to do a feature on one of the best company’s I have ever worked with and seen their work: Vizion Event Production. It was a pleasure to sit down with co-owner Raul Ernesto for this Hotspots exclusive interview.
When did you get into the nightclub business?
I was involved in the nightlife entertainment industry at a very young age. It was not until 2008 when it became my career.
What was the first club you managed?
The infamous DISCOTEKKA/Mekka in Downtown Miami.
At what point did you discover your love for lights and sound?
I have always been attracted to stage production. It is not an easy task to create a concept and bring it to life on a stage. I witnessed some of the best nightclub light shows and stage productions at the Coliseum in Fort Lauderdale, around 1998, under the direction of Gary Santis. I learned very much of the nightclub logistics and details for production from Santis. I do believe that besides art and passion, it is a special gift that is needed to be able to deliver a great visual production. I have great admiration for Danny Villar, Kidd Madonny, and Luis Morera, who year after year are always delivering great creative concepts, shaping the way of Gay entertainment in South Florida.
What made you decide to open Vizion Event Production?
VIZION Event Productions was born from the passion of music, production and nightlife of two individuals: Raul Vegas (moi), who has been in the Entertainment Industry of South Florida for almost two decades and has a keen eye for detail, production, organization and overall event logistics, and, Yazz Burrell, recognized Star DJ/Producer of South Florida in the LGBT community and specialist in audio visual technology.
