Park Road Post

The Park Road Post building

Park Road Post is a 10,200 m² (110,000 ft²) motion picture post production facility, located in Miramar, New Zealand, a suburb of Wellington. Formerly the state-owned National Film Unit, the new facility was renamed Park Road Post upon completion in 2005. Park Road Post is owned by WingNut Films, the production company of Peter Jackson.

Services offered at Park Road Post include Foley/ADR suites, editing facilities, a sound library and fully automated digital audio mixing suites for TV and film, featuring Euphonix System 5-Fs.

Although incomplete at the time, the facility was where sound for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003) was mixed. Following this, King Kong (2005) was mixed at the facility and then 2009's sci-fi sleeper hit District 9. Both films resulted in Academy Awards for Best Sound Mixing.

Park Road Post also carried out the restoration of This is New Zealand for the 2007 New Zealand Film Festival.

Writer/director Peter Briggs has described Park Road Post as the best Post-production facility in the world – beating anything in Hollywood.[1]

In March 2013 Park Road Post closed down its film processing lab, citing the shift to digital productions. The lab facilities were relocated and rehoused at Archives New Zealand.[2]
