Stuck in Ohio

Stuck in Ohio is a video production company based on a 300 acre farm in Vienna, Ohio.  It was started by 2 brothers, Ken and Dan Mizicko, in 2003.  From it's inception, the company's purpose was to promote outdoor sports and activities within Ohio and the Midwest through their visuals.

Too often you hear "that's not possible, you can't do that in Ohio" and Stuck in Ohio has chosen to make it their mission to shoot down that stigma.  With a solid history in the outdoor sports genre for over 2 decades, the brand's outlook has always been to enhance Ohio's image by promoting outdoor recreation, on both a local, and national level.

News of the company spread quickly with the sales of their "Stuck in Ohio" bumper stickers, t-shirts, and other merchandise. At first, some folks perceived the phrase "Stuck in Ohio" as negative towards the state, but the meaning is the complete opposite as explained by co-founder Ken Mizicko, "It has nothing to do with hating Ohio. We are 'stuck' here and we love it!"  Dan Mizicko, co-founder explains, "Ohio is great because we have warm summers and cold winters here so we can play different sports. You can't snowboard or play pond hockey in the winter in the south."

The name, Stuck in Ohio, is meant to empower those who refuse to be limited by their own surroundings and circumstance, and to motivate those whose narrow mindedness may have caused disdain for their current environment.

As an award winning and nationally recognized video company, they have worked on numerous video projects for brands such as NBC Sports, Garmin, Nike, Fiat, Red Bull, Honda, Mountain Dew, Under Armour, Burton Snowboards, And Rockstar Energy.
