////// OUR HISTORY


WIZNU Labs was founded by legendary Entertainment Biz Photographer, Michael Wisnieux. Some of Michael's credits include capturing the alternative rock scene in Chicago, in the 1980's & 90's. Throughout his career, he has combined his love for music, photography, video, and events. In Winter 2012, Michael actualized his vision by securing an art loft to create WIZNU Labs in Downtown Los Angeles. Through renovations and revelations, a NU approach to creative collaboration was born. WIZNU Labs has hosted a wealth of talent between its walls thus far. The space has brought together workshops for social causes, hosted music and art events and has been used as a filming location. Many exciting projects have sprung from WIZNU's collaborations and brainstorms, including REBIRTH: The Short Motion Picture, the ALTA Music Foundation for healing music, and our first artist-in-residence, Andrea Brook with her SONIC BUTTERFLY installation and performances. Working with a talented team of staff and friends, Michael has produced videos and films with such luminaries as Grammy awarded Koji Nakamura, Emmy awarded Gary Malkin and the legendary Glen Campbell. We've planted so many seeds, we're excited to see what's next.
