The Playmaker, formerly known as ARRI Media International, was launched on May 1st 2021 as a brand within the new mother company Media Services GmbH, which took over the entire ARRI Media operations (post-production, VFX, restoration, coproduction and international sales). Your familiar ARRI Media sales team, now under the new exciting The Playmaker banner, is a highly enthusiastic, open and determined international sales and co-production outfit based in the heart of Munich, Germany.
The Playmaker not only operates as an international distributor, but also offers the possibility of getting on board as a co-producer, which is especially keen to strengthen the creative cooperation between producers by, amongst others, expanding a creative talent pool with directors and authors.
Alongside our co-production and international distribution activities, we can also bring a broad range of services from inside the Media Services GmbH (camera, lightning, post- production).
