KITAY PRODUCTIONS EXPANDING TO NEW YORK WITH SECOND OFFICE
Kitay Productions, Inc., an award-winning television and video production company, today announced an exciting expansion with the August opening of a second office in New York.
The company, founded in 2002 by Emmy Award-winning producer Joel Kitay, creates high-impact content for A-List clientele including the New Jersey Devils, Boston University, Comcast SportsNet, University of Maryland, Comcast On Demand, Sprint, Bank of America, Temple University, USA Football, National Bureau of Asian Research, United Cerebral Palsy, Marriott Foundation, and more.
With today's ever-increasing market for video delivered online for corporations, teams, leagues, non-profits, and education, Kitay believes the market is ripe for expansion.
"This is an incredibly exciting time for our business," said Kitay, whose career began with NFL Films. "Our new office will allow Kitay Productions to improve and expand upon service to existing clients, while pursuing new growth opportunities."
Kitay Productions will maintain its original, existing office, production facility, and current staff in Owings Mills, Md. Joel Kitay will split time between Owings Mills and the new office in Port Washington, N.Y., and existing clients can expect improved service from added depth and resources.
"Technology has completely revolutionized the video industry in recent years, opening the door for talented and nimble production teams such as ours to do great work for prestigious clients across the country," Kitay added. "We look forward to continued growth in New York and beyond."
Kitay Productions' presence in the New York market dates to 2004, when it began a multi-year contract to produce a football highlight video for Army. Subsequently, Kitay Productions produced a Division I hockey game at Madison Square Garden in 2007, and went on to help the New Jersey Devils open the brand-new Prudential Center in Newark by creating a heart-thumping, high-definition video, "The Devil Comes to Newark," played at the start of every home game as the team takes the ice. With many new stadium and arena projects underway in New York, combined with the region's unrivaled business and media stature, Kitay believes now is the time to expand.
Joel Kitay founded Kitay Productions in 2002 after working in video production for NFL Films for one year, and the Baltimore Ravens for the following seven years. During his tenure with the Ravens, Kitay rose to Manager of Broadcasting, producing a variety of live and taped television programs. Kitay has earned four Emmy Awards, and 12 nominations, during his 15 years in the television business. This spring, Kitay Productions was nominated for an Emmy Award for its work in producing "The Gary Williams Show," the University of Maryland's weekly television program starring its men's basketball head coach.
