About DanaK

  Thank you for this opportunity to introduce myself.  I am a multi-faceted producer with vast experience in film, theater and television and I have worked with all levels of talent from Oscar-winning Directors, Writers, Producers and Actors to first timers. As the former Head of Media for Avex International, Inc, I was responsible for content creation and overseeing a challenging and diverse slate of projects including the Broadway productions of the Tony nominated John Leguizamo’s Latin History for Morons and the Bryan Adams’ scored Pretty Woman, The Musical. Before joining Avex, I produced such diverse projects from the traditional like HBO’s pilot episode Boardwalk Empire to their acclaimed series The Wire and NBC’s SMASH and the nontraditional, with Doug Liman producing the first major scripted series designed specifically for 360-degree virtual reality, Invisible or The New Yorker Presents (both projects for CNE!). My experience in production and management spans many years working on various productions in all types of genres and a variety of budget levels. I look forward to properly introducing myself and telling you more. Best, Dana Kuznetzkoff (917) 647-0062 DJKUZNETZ@GMAIL.COM
