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 that had him traveling the world. KSK has steadily evolved ever since.
In 2001, KSK Studios began developing original programming 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. In the early aughts, KSK also created the successful children’s home video series, “Move ‘N Groove Kids,” a creative movement program for toddlers.
With the launch in 2006 critically acclaimed 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 a fully “in-house” production 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 required web, interactive and brand development work. Cycle IA was founded by visionary polymath, Dyske Suematsu, a long-time collaborator whose expertise in design, data analytics, programming, and philosophy proves invaluable to Cycle’s clients.
