Faced with some extra time during the COVID-19 pandemic due to school and theme park closures, Orlando-based couple Evan and Christie Miga, decided to use their newly-discovered free time to do something they’ve always wanted to do – launch a television show.
The Migas, known for larger-than-life creations like Dog Powered Robot, have launched a new YouTube show called Miga Made (Website | YouTube) – a creative series for all ages, featuring “… holograms, portals, robots, and the power of imagination,” from the privacy of their home.
The show takes viewers on fun adventures through sci-fi settings such as their impressive, fully-recycled megalopolis they call “Recyc City.” The show inspires viewers to make awesome creations using cardboard, recyclables, and objects that they can find around their own homes. A recent episode even shared how to make a vibracoil at home to create “awesome laser sound effects.”
Evan Miga has been an environmental graphic designer in the theme park industry for 6-years after being a graphic designer for 12-years and has even done some scenic work for Adult Swim shows like Aqua Teen Hunger Force and Squidbillies. He is the creator behind the award-winning Fringe-favorite, Dog Powered Robot. His passion for story-telling, compelling visuals, and whimsical style have all been tapped to create Miga Made.
Editor’s Note: Evan isn’t really allowed to talk about his work and asked us not to mention it but we sleuthed it out that he works with one of the big local theme parks in the “imagination” department and we thought it was important to note that he makes dreams come true for a living.
Christie Miga is a visual artist and experiential educator and she has been in the education field for 15 years but is more known for her art shows such as “Engrained” and her nighttime art experience, “Luminosities” that she hosted in Mead Garden in 2018 at nighttime and asked people to follow a map across the grounds to find strategically placed art pieces by flashlight. In addition to art shows, she also produced Dog Powered Robot at Orlando’s Fringe Festival, Dog Powered Robot fundraisers, and assisted in Orlando’s hit Cardboard Art Festival series.
You can follow along with their series via Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube.
