HISTORY

KSK Studios was founded by Executive Producer, Manny Kivowitz in 1988. The company had humble beginnings, with Manny working primarily as a Director of Photography for a small but devoted client base in New York City, and has steadily evolved ever since.
KSK Studios became an original programming developer in 2001 with the creation of the cult hit documentary “Red Light Go,” which takes the audience inside the world of New York City bicycle messenger racing, often referred to as Alleycats. KSK has also created the successful children’s home video series, “Move ‘N Groove Kids,” a creative movement program for toddlers.

With the launch in 2006 of VH1 TV Series, “Can’t Get a Date,” which Kivowitz co-created with long-time associates Stefan Springman and Toby Barraudand, Manny became a recognized developer and producer of original programming for Television. “Can’t Get a Date” was handled in-house from development through post and premiered in April 2006 on VH1 and June 2006 on Logo.

In 2012, Manny joined forces with design firm, Cycle InterActive in order to best service KSK’s clients who require web and interactive development, and later became a full partner in the group. Cycle IA was founded by Dyske Suematsu, a long time collaborator who is also an expert programmer and digital media designer.

KSK Studios is an award-winning, full-service video production company with deep experience in commercial, corporate and t.v. production. Our team will partner with you, developing your projects from beginning to end.
