Blowback Productions was created by Marc Levin in 1988. He and his producing partner, Daphne Pinkerson, have made over 20 films which have won Emmys, duPonts, Cable Aces, and numerous other awards and accolades. They have told powerful real stories in a unique authentic style.
“Blowback” is a CIA/intelligence term for the unintended consequences of covert operations that boomerang or backfire. In other words, “What goes around, comes around.”
For over 20 years, Levin and Blowback have operated out of the 17th floor of the landmark Starrett Lehigh building on 26th Street and the Hudson River. It has been the center of a unique creative community that has included Mark Benjamin, Alex Gibney, Susan Lacy, Richard Stratton, Rachel Grady, Heidi Ewing, S. Epatha Merkerson, Alison Ellwood, Barry Cole, Blair Breard, Ezra Swerdlow, Ken Sirulnick, Ross Kaufman, Fred Berner, Jerry Kupfer, Robert Katz, Lashan Browning, Danny Clinch, Adam Lough, Jen Tuft, Rachel Goldstein, Kevin Kaufman, Doug Biro, Jon Fine, Andrew Mer, Stephanie Sharis, Henri Kessler and many others.
