WB’s U.K. studio buys post-production house

De Lane Lea expands Leavesden's range of services

LONDON

Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the U.K. has acquired local post-production house De Lane Lea, it announced Wednesday.

Rebranded Warner Bros. De Lane Lea, the facility, based in London’s Soho, will enable the studio to offer full post-production services on top of Leavesden’s state-of-the-art production facilities. The post-production house will be available both to inhouse and external productions.

“Just five months from the opening of Warner Bros. Leavesden Studios, this latest acquisition is further evidence of our commitment to the U.K. film industry,” said Josh Berger, prexy and managing director of Warner Bros. U.K., Ireland and Spain. “Through its many years of operating, De Lane Lea has earned a powerhouse reputation for servicing tentpole movies for us and other studios.”

Berger said the studio would put new investment in the facility, which already features three recording stages, two ADR stages, 40 picture editing suites, a TV mixing stage and a transfer bay for the digital delivery, conversion and ingestion of picture and sound.

De Lane Lea recently worked on “Skyfall,” “Frankenweenie,” “Prometheus” and Warner Bros.’ “Dark Shadows” and is currently working on Alfonso Cuaron’s “Gravity,” also for Warner Bros.

“By owning and operating our own post-production facility in the U.K. we’re increasing the flexibility and scheduling of our own post-production requirements, as well as those of other studios,” said Kim Waugh, senior VP of post-production services, Warner Bros. studio facilities.
