Renaissance Entertainment principals Jon Binkowski & Lisa Enos Smith
Jon Binkowski is the co-founder and CEO of Renaissance Entertainment. Jon's credentials include being Vice President of Entertainment for the SeaWorld Family of Parks where he produced and/or wrote and/or directed over 30 Live Action and Marine Mammal shows. As CEO of Renaissance and Chief Creative Officer of International Creative Services Co., LLC, Mr. Binkowski also led master planning and design of a US $400M theme park (Hard Rock Park), as well as numerous original rides (roller coasters and dark rides), '4D' movies, spectaculars, and interactive attractions.
Jon has also served as co-writer and director of three full-length motion pictures, most recently the family comedy "Characterz," which he co-wrote with Lisa Enos Smith. It was of course inspired by both of their adventures in the theme park industry--it's the story of a summer in the lives of some charming costumed characters.
