KOLKATA: Streaming giant Netflix is all set to open its first live-action, post-production facility in Mumbai. The facility with 40 offline editing rooms for use by showrunners, directors, editors and sound designers, will become fully operational by June 2022.

With innovation and collaboration as the focus, it will pioneer advanced media management workflows to allow a seamless partnership with India’s post-production community, said the streamer.

“Indian audiences love high quality and diverse stories available on-demand to suit their tastes and moods. We saw this last year with an increase in viewing of stories across formats, genres, and languages. Whether it’s our favourite preschool hit series Mighty Little Bheem, International Emmy winning series Delhi Crime, or our beloved films like Guilty, Ludo, Pagglait, and Paava Kadhaigal... it’s been an incredible ride,” Netflix said in a blog post.

The US company has invested Rs 3,000 crores in local programming over 2019 and 2020 to build a universe of Indian stories. In March, it announced a lineup of 41 titles featuring more variety and diversity - from some of the biggest films and series to gripping documentaries and ingenious comedy formats. In 2020, it launched NetFX - a platform that enables multiple Indian artists to work on VFX for titles globally.

Moreover, the company is investing in the latest technologies and skill development through multiple certifications and training workshops in post-production, scriptwriting, and other aspects of creative production.

“We want to continue to contribute to the Indian creative community. Our goal is to keep improving the overall experience for our talent and industry partners and equip them with the best resources to tell authentic stories most engagingly. We are in a golden age of entertainment in India - this is the best time to be a creator and consumer of great stories,” the blog post read
