Fiesta Studios began over ten years ago as a project created by Andrew Miller. The idea was to produce videos with the goal of simply making friends and family laugh. After the group split up in 2007 to pursue other projects, the channel saw a resurgence of videos as Andrew Miller, Andy Amstutz, Kristin Wuensch and Danny Pelz set out to create a “monster in the woods” series. While this was a different tone entirely than the original Fiesta Studios content entirely, it brought together these creative minds who would then go on to form the new iteration of Fiesta Studios in 2015.
While the aim was casual without a focus on widespread marketing, something happened along the way. We were contacted by the production studio behind “Outrageous Acts of Science” on Discovery Science channel, who wanted to use our video ‘Eating a Durian Fruit’ which was the first of several food challenges filmed that year. So, although the aim was not to become famous over the season, the team ended up getting viewed by hundreds of thousands of people on television anyway.
Andrew Miller’s over 14 years of video experience include directing, writing, editing, sound design, acting and producing, in countless projects including national television commercials while working in the industry in Chicago.
