Carol Dunn

Executive Producer
Santa Monica
, United States of America

As West Coast Executive Producer of award-winning music studio Human, Carol leads the creative partnerships for her team with their clients for commercials, film and TV through music, sound design and final mix. Carol develops projects and oversees audio production for their staff of 15 composers. Her music career stretches over 30 years, which began on the label side as a switchboard operator at Capitol Records.
By being inquisitive and sharing her love of music & film she was able to parlay that position from answering phones to sitting behind her own desk and helping produce notable soundtracks such as Boogie Nights, Stealing Beauty, Baz Lurhmann’s Romeo + Juliet, Bulworth, Rugats, I & II and Office Space to name a few. As the landscape of how music is delivered began moving from actual records & CDs to streams and downloads, her career moved over to music publishing where she sharpened her synch chops even further.
From publishing she moved directly onto the advertising side and has not looked back. Her music house career started at Amber Music in 2006 and continued with Asche & Spencer, Squeak E Clean and finally to where she is now, with Human. Carol imagines music as another character in the film. This passion for marrying music to film naturally brought her to the audio post side of commercial, making where her eyes and ears have been, put to great use producing projects for brands Such as Infiniti, Doritos, Samsung, Google, Adidas, Uber, Nike Women, Cadillac and Coca Cola. When she’s not overseeing production (and still reading Murakami’s 1Q84)m she is tirelessly working to further diversity and inclusion within the industry of advertising.
