what we do
SPRK designs and installs innovative, high-impact turnkey lighting for theme parks, resorts, special and seasonal events, family entertainment centers, and more.
Our award-winning work represents a wide range of budget requirements, environments and design challenges. From new facilities, old exhibits and worn-out guest queues, we’re masters of healing bloated budgets and tired attractions with a guest-centric approach.
SPRK principal and founder Matt Cooper’s passion for lighting was obvious from a young age when administrators handed him the figurative keys to the neglected high school auditorium.
Matt organized and rehabbed gear, enlisted the help of fellow students and squeezed every ounce of potential from that Little Theater That Could. While Cooper still enjoys hands-on work, his flair for entertainment lighting led him to open SPRK in 2018.
He was inspired by the challenges of themed attraction projects, the mix of artistic disciplines and the thrill of collaboration with other artists. SPRK’s scrappy budgeting and outside-the-box problem solving has rescued many theme parks and family entertainment centers.
The Themed Entertainment Association has recognized SPRK’s outstanding work with a 2022 Thea Award for Gideon’s Bakehouse at Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs in Orlando, Fla.
