Indigo Productions, an NYC Corporate Video Production Company, Creates a Viral Video Seen by Over 10 Million People Worldwide
September 21, 2009
NEW YORK, NY—A video titled “JK Divorce Entrance Dance,” which spoofs the popular “JK Wedding Entrance Dance” video, was created by Indigo Productions, an NYC Corporate Video Production Company.
Indigo made the video as a result of a friendly bet with a corporate client who wanted proof that Indigo could create a viral video that would get millions of views.
The Indigo team decided to parody the JK Wedding video, a “user-generated” viral video sensation which featured a real wedding party dancing down a church aisle, busting their moves to the tune of Chris Brown’s pop song “Forever.”
Max Rosen, the president of the company, and the Indigo team pulled the entire project together in just 48 hours. They worked with a choreographer from the Conan O’Brien show, a group of top Broadway dancers and acrobats, students from Indigo’s viral video workshop and Internet marketing consultants from Cherryone, a Chicago web design company. They filmed the video in the Supreme Court in NYC in under an hour, and later that same night the video was ready to go live on YouTube.
“JK Divorce Entrance Dance” received tens of thousands of YouTube views the very first day, and was quickly re-posted on websites around the globe. Within the first week the view count crossed one million, and it quickly became the #1 viewed video in Asia. To date, the video has received over two million views on YouTube, two million on Yahoo, and millions more on CollegeHumor, Break and AOL. With additional millions from major websites in Canada, Britain, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Japan, China and India, Indigo’s “JK Divorce Dance” is well over 10 million views and counting.
The spoof also received an enormous amount of media coverage including primetime TV stories on CNN, NBC and MSNBC, as well as articles on Yahoo and AOL, and in the Chicago Tribune and Forbes.

NYC Video Production Company Editor Wins PBS Short Film Competition
April 27, 2009
NEW YORK, NY—Michael Krivicka of Indigo Productions, a prominent NYC video production company, has won the prestigious “Reel 13” PBS competition with his short film “New York Talk.”
“New York Talk,” which was broadcast by PBS on April 4, is a brilliant and kinetic slice of the city featuring an uncommon look at the New York lifestyle. The film perfectly captures the energy of Manhattan with a fast-paced mosaic of images and people—narrated by a street smart, bitingly satirical, and distinctly New York guide.
“New York Talk” has been touring film festivals worldwide. It has been officially selected by the Berlin International Short Film Festival, the Los Angeles International Short Film Festival, the Tribeca Underground Film Festival, the Miami Short Film Festival, Exground FilmFest, the Festival International du Court Metrage, the Long Island International Short Film Expo, the Cabbagetown Short Film Festival, the Zeitgeist Short Film Festival, the Hardacre Film Festival, the Billyburg Short Film Festival, the Fort Myers Beach Film Festival, and the Coney Island Film Festival.
Krivicka was born and raised in Slovakia and spent his high school years in Germany. In 1996, he moved to the US to start his college education and four years later graduated summa cum laude from the NJCU film program. By then he already had his first of many film festival wins in his pocket.
In 2006 Krivicka joined Indigo Productions, a full-service video and multimedia production company based in New York City. Krivicka’s European background and multiple language skills turned out to be a big advantage for Indigo since many of their corporate video projects are used worldwide.
Indigo’s client base includes a wide variety of Fortune 500 companies, large and small businesses, ad agencies, nonprofits, arts groups and other organizations. Over the past 17 years, Indigo has earned an international reputation by winning top industry awards and providing clients with a one-stop shopping solution for all their video production and video editing needs. In addition to its videography and corporate video services, Indigo also offers a full range of legal video production services.
