Celluloid Dreams, Studio Babelsberg and Clou Partners Join Forces to Create Production Powerhouse The Manipulators

Taking their cue from their rivals across the Atlantic, three of the top European film production /financing companies, Paris based production and sales outfit Celluloid Dreams, Berlin/Potsdam based Studio Babelsberg and Munich based Clou Partners have joined forces. Each company brings their own expertise and know-how into their venture - named The Manipulators - and between them, they cover all areas of film-making except exhibition.

The Manipulators' first project is the highly anticipated first live action feature by Oscar nominated directors of Persepolis, Marjane Satrapi and Vincent Paronnaud. Azrael is slated to start shooting this year at Studio Babelsberg.
