Ryszard Nykiel, described as an "extraordinarily talented shooter" by KTQ co-founder and Artistic Director Gordon Quinn, worked on Kartemquin classics such as The Last Pullman Car and Golub. Nykiel also worked with KTQ collective member Judy Hoffman on several of her projects.
Ruth Ratny, a pioneering journalist who covered Chicago's advertising, marketing and film production businesses went on to found Screen Magazine and ReelChicago.com. "Literally thousands of people in Chicago film, TV and advertising owe her a huge debt for helping them spread word about their projects," said Kartemquin Communications Director Tim Horsburgh.
David Szabo worked on Sports-Action Pro-Files as an editor in the late sixties, keeping in touch with KTQ founders Jerry Blumenthal and Gordon Quinn over the years, as Quinn and Blumenthal built Kartemquin and Szabo began his company Szabo Editing. Szabo would return to Kartemquin time to time, working in our edit suites on his own independent projects.
With a noted tradition of nurturing emerging talent and acting as a leading voice for independent media, Kartemquin is building on more than 50 years of history as Chicago’s documentary powerhouse.
