Netflix is setting up its first post-production facility in Mumbai that will cater to not only Indian but also global projects of the streaming major. This will be Netflix' first fully owned, live-action, fullservice post-production facility anywhere in the world, and is expected to be operational by June 2022.
The facility will have 40 offline editing rooms for showrunners, directors, editors and sound designers to collaborate and complete production.
“We are excited that Mumbai will be home to this wonderful creative space,” said Vijay Venkataramanan, director, post-production, Netflix India. “This reinforces our commitment to India’s entertainment industry as we continue to empower creators with the best resources to tell great stories.”
The post-production studio will be a global production hub for Netflix, which now has over 208 million paid subscribers in over 190 countries.
The facility will pioneer advanced media management workflows that will allow a seamless partnership with India’s post-production community, the company said.
