NEW YORK CITY — Editor JK Carrington has joined the roster at PS260 (www.ps260.com). She ranked second amongst all editors who received awards at The One Show earlier this year, after winning Best of Show, three Grand Prix and 20 Golds for "The Lost Class" campaign, which highlighted the 3,044 members of the 2021 high school class that weren’t able to graduate because they were casualties of gun violence at American schools.
Carrington’s portfolio of editing and sound design work crosses broadcast media, documentaries and advertising. Her credits include clients such as Katy Perry for Killer Queen, Nike, NFL, Diet Coke, Rob Riggle for Veterans United, Mastercard, Microsoft, Verizon, TJX and many more.
Carrington started her career as an assistant set designer for Broadway musicals and plays, but soon came to realize her true passion for storytelling through editing, and built an entirely new career from the ground up. She went from knowing no one in post production to becoming an award-winning editor, working with a broad range of post houses, production companies, agencies and brands.
“In addition to their global presence and reputation in the industry, what also stood out to me with PS260 is how aligned we are with approaching the creative process holistically and empathetically,” says the editor. “It’s not just about the mechanics of a good piece of work. It’s also about the process that involves the whole team, from client to internal, and how to get the best out of everyone. As a self-made creative editor/director, I’m very happy to be joining an environment that is so supportive and inclusive.”
“We’re excited to represent JK and further her professional career by pairing her immense talent with our wonderful list of global clients,” adds Zarina Mak, managing partner at PS260. “Her commitment to building client relations, along with delivering outstanding edits, was what set her apart. We are looking forward to continuing to offer excellent work with JK's contributions.”
