Brooklyn and Los Angeles-based production company Greenpoint Pictures has announced the addition of Karen Berkowitz as the company’s first head of production.
With a love of bringing people and ideas together, tackling unexpected problems that pop up, and watching something transform into something greater than the sum of its parts, Karen has worked in advertising for over a decade. After starting her career at JWT, Karen worked at the motion graphics studio Leroy + Clarkson, and then Park Pictures. She continued working in production management for a few years before most recently working as the NY bidding producer at SMUGGLER.
Says Tatiana Rudzinski, Greenpoint Pictures’ executive producer: “It’s an exciting time to have Karen join us as it’s been an incredible year of growth here at Greenpoint. She’s production savvy, collaborative and a lovely person to have with us on our team. I know her years of experience will be invaluable to the company’s continued success.”
Karen adds: “I couldn’t be more excited about joining the team at Greenpoint Pictures.”

Mcleavey-Fisher, Renee Mao, The Roos Brothers, TJ Misny, Micah Perta, Jesse Heath, and Lauren Sick. Recently, Renee Mao’s short film Panthera premiered on Dazed and was a Vimeo Staff Pick.
