NEW YORK CITY — Creative studio Nice Shoes (www.niceshoes.com) has hired Nick Litwinko as executive producer, in charge of running the company’s newly-launched film and episodic VFX division. Litwinko launched his career at MTV, where he worked as a senior producer for MTV Promos/Animation before stepping up as executive producer/director for MTV Commercials. His decade-long tenure there 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.
Constantly seeking new challenges, he was later named senior producer for Psyop New York, before launching the New York office of Blind. He later moved on to join the team at First Avenue Machine, where he served as executive producer/head of production. He was then recruited to join ShootersInc as managing director, leading a strategic rebrand and building up their New York City offices, as well as playing an instrumental part in the rebrand to Alkemy X.
“Nice Shoes has always been focused on delivering the highest quality visuals, no matter the scope or size of the project,” says Litwinko. “I’m excited to continue to build upon these established superior production values to partner with content creators on highly collaborative projects that call for a very focused and stylized VFX approach. 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.”
“Nick has such an impressive background and brings such a wealth of knowledge and experience in building and scaling new divisions,” adds managing director Justin Pandolfino. “He brings a pervasive excitement for creative challenges and is constantly seeking ways to evolve himself and the talent he engages. We’re thrilled to have him join the Nice Shoes team.”
Since coming on board with Nice Shoes, Litwinko and his team already have three long-form projects underway, and will be announcing talent signings in the coming months.
