People on the Move
- NEW YORK
Creative studio Nice Shoes has hired Nick Litwinko as executive producer, helming the launch of the New York-based company’s new film and episodic VFX division. Litwinko, who has built a career on infusing a serial entrepreneur approach to the development of creative studios, will grow the division, recruiting versatile talent to bring a boutique, collaborative approach to visual effects for long-form entertainment projects.
The division will focus on projects spanning feature film and episodic, that are marked with highly stylized visuals as a vehicle for conceptual exploration. Since coming on board with Nice Shoes, Litwinko and his team already have three long form projects underway and will be announcing a major talent signing in the coming months.
Litwinko noted, “While our focus will be on feature and episodic work, we’ll also be available to collaborate with agencies and brands on advertising and branded content.”
Litwinko launched his career at MTV during the height of its cultural zeitgeist, working as a sr. producer for MTV Promos/Animation before stepping up as executive producer/director for MTV Commercials. His decade-long tenure with the media giant during this transformative period led him to launch his own company, Rogue Creative, where he served dual roles as EP/director, overseeing a wide range of animated, live action and VFX-driven branded campaigns. He was later named sr, producer for Psyop New York, before launching the New York office of BL:ND. He moved on to join 1stAveMachine as executive producer/head of production as they widened their expertise at the intersection of technology and entertainment on a global scale. He was then recruited to join ShootersINC as managing director, leading a strategic rebrand and building up their NYC offices and playing an instrumental part in the rebrand to Alkemy X.
Nice Shoes managing director Justin Pandolfino cited Litwinko’s penchant for creative challenges and “wealth of knowledge and experience in building and scaling new divisions.”
