Katina Productions was formed in 1989 by Simon Nuchtern after he left August Films, Inc. where he was President and Creative Director / Producer since its incorporation in 1967. August Films was a motion picture production and post–production company located in the film center district near Times Square in Manhattan. Nuchtern wrote, produced and directed a number of successful feature films. The company also worked in the post–production of other producers’ features. August Films had the good fortune to work with several important industrial and commercial clients such as United Press International, Hanna–Barbera, Worldvision, Sesame Street, DuPont, Hercules, Viacom, Miramax Films and many others.
In 1989, Nuchtern saw the impact that video was making on the world of visual communications and realized that the future of post production was in a smaller, more nimble, computer based environment. As a result Nuchtern dissolved the company and opened a small shop in SoHo in New York, where Katina Productions, LLC still resides today.
