Founder / Consulting Design Principal
Mr. Fisher spent his early school years with two passions: practicing to be a magician and being a stage hand in the school theater. He had no idea how either could lead to a career until he became an apprentice in a summer theater. Within a few weeks of watching the production of the musical Guys and Dolls brought to life by “light”, he knew what he would spend his life pursuing.
After studying lighting design at Carnegie Institute of Technology, Jules came to New York City and took any and every job as long as it was in a theatre. He lit dozens of Off-Broadway shows, eight more summers of lighting in “summer stock”, industrial shows, gardens, architecture, rock concerts, residences, then finally – a Broadway show.
In searching for original and inventive light sources, he met Paul Marantz and they joined forces to become FMS. Theatre infused architectural lighting, or is it architectural lighting infused theatre?
Now, hundreds of shows later, he is still practicing to be a magician.
