Jon Kasunic's career has been a diverse one. Filmmaker,
speechwriter, producer, and entrepreneur, Jon started his career in
1982 at Ketchum Advertising where he worked as a copywriter on such
accounts as Gulf Oil, Heinz U.S.A., and Rubbermaid.
In 1985, "Kaz" opened a film production company, Longfellow
Productions, now Crows Run Pictures, which for more than two
decades has been one of the nation's leading producers of high-end
television commercials (NFL, Mandalay Bay Resorts, GNC, UPMC),
corporate and institutional films, and documentaries.
In 2001, he co-founded sunKING, a 100% digital advertising
agency that produced cutting edge online work for the likes of
Coca-Cola, Heinz, Dean Foods, Transitions Optical, and Limited
Brands. In May 2010, Jon and sunKING partner Brian Lorence, the
shop's chief creative technologist, left to form Agency1903,
staying in the same 8,000 square foot building in Pittsburgh's
Uptown section, and adding an office in South Florida and Las
Vegas. Tom Megalis, a long-time creative partner of Kasunic, joined
the team in January 2011 as the agency's Chief Creative
Kasunic continues to write and produce for 1903, as well as
manage the day-to-day for the company. He's known to tell a
war-story or two, but is now strictly limited to one a week by his
younger, greener associates.
