In the beginning (December of 1989)...there was Peter Brooks and Marc Anewenter making movies at Marc's house. After doing a couple of movies with a character Marc created called Bob Clampski, the pair decided they should have a logo and a production company name like so many other TV shows and Films had.
Peter took out a sheet of paper and drew a simple stick person design of one kicking the other in the butt. Peter was always fascinated with the play on words "A Kick Butt Production" so they took the design and used it in the beginning of their movies. For the longest time they also had a background noise (Peter's dad yelling 'Peter' just like he would do when the phone was for him).
After Peter's parents saw one of these movies they surprised him with business cards and stationary, fueling the dream of KBP becoming a real movie producing company.
In the winter of 1993, Peter's brother Mike drew a 'fleshed out' version of the stick people that lead to a second logo with facial expressions. At this point, Peter's family started making him apparrel, which he wore proudly. Around Tosa East High School (Wauwatosa, Wisconsin) many of the students knew what KBP was: a dream of Peter's to make film.
In the spring of 1995 KBP released it's first movie on limited run called 'You Ain't It Ms. Thing' for Peter's Media Communications class.
Since then Peter has updated the logo to the current logo as well as use KBP as a platform for public speaking, creative fostering, and inspiration to one day return behind the camera.
