Sony, Dubbing pact for German facility

Berlin's Babelsberg Studio to be the site

BERLIN — Sony Pictures Entertainment and France’s Dubbing Brothers on Tuesday announced plans to open a dubbing facility at the legendary Babelsberg Studio on the outskirts of Berlin.

Sony will hold a minority stake in the new company, which will be known as Dubbing Brothers Germany and managed day-to-day by Dubbing Brothers with Sony chipping in on technical expertise in facility management and audio engineering.

Construction will begin in August for the building, which is estimated to cost nearly DM9 million ($4.5 million) and will offer German-language dubbing facilities.

Sony ‘thrilled’

“We are thrilled to be doing business with Dubbing Brothers here in Germany,” said Juergen Schau, the managing director of Columbia TriStar Film’s German operations, which just moved to Berlin from Munich.

Schau will act as the facility’s managing director rep for Sony.

The new facility, which is expected to create about 40 jobs for the region, was backed by the local state bank, the InvestitionsBank des Landes Brandenburg.
