Post-Production Company PS260 Heads West, Hires New EP Carol Dunn

The company has made a strategic new hire, bringing industry veteran Carol Dunn on board as Executive Producer of the new office, the location of which is the widely known house and shooting location of HBO’s Californication series.

PS260 has seen strong growth over the past few years, and the expansion of its leadership team and its new office is a reflection of the company’s track record of developing effective and story-driven work for its clients.

“We’ve wanted to open an office in Los Angeles for awhile now. We’re doing more work there with client relationships extending to the West Coast,” said PS260’s Managing Partner Zarina Mak. “With her incredible talent and industry expertise, Carol is the perfect person to grow the business. We’re beyond thrilled to welcome her to the team.” 

Dunn will be reporting to Mak in her new role, where she will be responsible for growing PS260’s West Coast business. She joins PS260 from Squeak E Clean Productions where she served as EP & Head of Sales, overseeing and directing national sales force, marketing and new business. She previously held leadership roles at music production company Amber Music, Capitol Records and Interscope Records.

“I’ve always been impressed with the caliber of PS260’s work, and I’m really excited to step into my role. I knew right away that I wanted to take on the challenge of launching a new office and helping PS260 bring their unique culture to the West Coast,” said Dunn. “They’re not your typical post-production house, and they don’t want to be. Any idea can be brought to the table, and it’s with that mentality that you see some of the most creative pieces of artistry produced. And the office space isn’t too bad, either.”

Known as the Californication house where much of the HBO series starring David Duchovny was shot, PS260’s new home was designed by David Hertz FAIA in Venice, CA. In its current form, the design mirrors the aesthetic of the PS260’s New York space, while remaining true to its West Coast location. The building has been honored for its environmentally responsible design with recognitions including the Sustainable Living Award by the Eco Home network.

"We'd always been toying with the idea of setting up our LA operation in a house as opposed to a traditional office space. For us, editing is such an intimate, personal and intense part of the post process that requires so much time and focus. We thought working 'at home' with our clients could create such a unique dynamic and would just be a really comfortable and rewarding way to work,” said JJ Lask, PS260’s partner and editor.
