Greg Gerosky ’02 and Jason Bergenfield '02 are the creative minds behind Manolin VidVilla Studios, which develops and produces a wide range of programs for TV, including specials, talk shows, sitcoms, movies, reality-based shows, international formats and web-based, interactive fare.


Greg and Jason met in their first media class at Lynn University. Their artistic ideas inspired them to venture into business together.


After graduating from Lynn, Greg spent five  years as a producer and the head of post-production for Reveille Studios, (now a division of Fox/ Newscorp known as “Shine America”) honing his workflow, management, budgeting and company finance skills on dozens of major projects.


He joined the company during the infancy of its studio division, culminating in its multi-million dollar sale to Fox/Newscorp. Greg played a key role in the success of the studio’s efforts, which contributed largely to its eventual sale.


Currently Greg’s role in the Manolin VidVilla Studios partnership includes development of new ideas, producing current ongoing projects and spearheading production and finance for the company.


Jason started working in the industry at the age of 18, including interning for Kopelson Entertainment on the Academy Award-winning Platoon. Before joining forces with Manolin VidVilla Studios, he worked as senior vice president of development and acquisitions with Xonger Global Media/C4 Pictures, which produced such hits has Baldwin Hills (BET), Barbershop 1 and 2 (MGM Studios), Meet Joe Jackson (A & E), and many more films and television programs. 


Jason has produced TV specials and series for NBC, ABC, FOX, Discovery, SPIKE, MSNBC, TruTV, GSN, BET, AOL TV, A & E, CCTV, Phoenix Television and many more.


Bergenfield and Gerosky fit the mold of many Lynn students who are creative and tend to think out of the box.  Together, they have used their combined skill set to make it big in one of the toughest industries in the world.  Lynn students and alumni alike can look to Greg and Jason as role models to achieve their dreams.
