Post house Octane sets bow

Haynie to head studio

Josh Haynie, former general manager at Sunset Post, is readying to open the doors Sept. 1 to Octane, a new 12-person, full-service post-production studio in Hollywood.

Octane, to be based at 1034 N. Seward Street, is set to join the highly competitive post-production arena, which is attracting smaller shops due to cheaper hardware and software packages.

Octane will specialize in four areas of post: telecine, editing, audio and graphics and f/x. The facility will feature two telecine suites, with Ursa Diamond color corrector, Discreet Logic/Smoke and Jaleo editing systems; a Macintosh G-3 graphics station and digital audio mixing, voice-over and sound design capabilities; as well as file conversion and creation support.

Haynie will serve as general manager and executive producer for the new company. Chris Miller has been tapped as telecine colorist, while Mike Canterbury has been tapped as Smoke operator.

‘Anti facility’

“Our goal with the creation of Octane was to make a new statement by launching an anti-facility,” Haynie said. “Octane will help to redefine the way clients can finish their projects, by coming here to create and design without a time clock mentality.”

Prior to Sunset Post, Haynie served as director of operations with the Post Group and operations manager with CIS Hollywood.

Miller was previously lead colorist with Dubbs Inc. and colorist with Editel L.A. Canterbury most recently was senior editor with Editel L.A.
