Berlin: Poland’s Facilities, Post Houses Attract Talent, More Foreign Shoots

6 February 2015 10:00 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Poland may not offer storied soundstages on the scale of Prague’s Barrandov or Germany’s Babelsberg, but the lights are coming on in a new crop of facilities in the entrepreneurial country’s production and post sectors.

Alvernia has been well known for some time to filmmakers working in Eastern Europe, thanks to its pod-like studio layout, impressive shadeless bluescreen dome suitable for 360-degree vfx and well-tuned soundstages suitable for symphonic recording.

Marcin Koszalka’s true crime story feature “Red Spider” and Bollywood’s “Bangistan,” among several others, have recently shot there.

But a major new entry on the market, Warsaw’s Atm Group, which features six soundstages, is also courting international projects.

Up to now, most of its biz has been focused on local projects. “Atm is a key player on the TV market,” says Tomasz Dabrowski of the Polish Film Commission, commanding a 40% share of shoots and services. »
