Producer: Knut Kielpinski
Producer Knut Kielpinski is Coaster Queen’s distribution and production guru. With the deft touch of a veteran coaster operator, Knut has overseen hundreds of commercials, dozens of music videos, and enough movies and TV shows to keep a full line of amusement park patrons entertained for weeks on end.
With a career track as smooth and sleek as a newly-built ride, Knut’s credits read like a who’s-who of the production and distribution world. In addition to working as an independent consultant, Knut has worked with Pytka productions, KIP International, Wright Bank films, Peterman Dekter, and RSA, and hobnobbed at famous film festivals around the globe, including Milan and AFM. Knut is living proof that earning a degree in Business Administration and an MBA doesn’t sentence you to a life of boredom!
A world traveler who’s fluent in German, it’s no wonder that Knut’s passion for cars focuses on Mercedes-Benz. A lover of both vintage Mercedes autos and the high-performance AMG series, Knut’s chariots of choice mirror the combination of old-school skills and cutting-edge technology that he brings to the entertainment field.
Knut has a special place in his heart for the classic roller coasters. His favorite ride, unveiled to mark America’s bicentennial, is the venerable Revolution at Magic Mountain in southern California. Knut was among the first to experience the then-futuristic, single-loop coaster that’s been featured in scores of movies and TV shows since it opened to the public in 1976. And just like Knut’s career, it’s still an amazing ride!
