Production

FCCE Production is the group’s in-house creative development unit for television formats and cross-media concepts, and the group’s TV production unit that sources and produces over 700 hours of content per year including a daily entertainment news feed, weekly magazines and evergreen series in the genre’s: Celebrity, Fashion, Movies, Music and Lifestyle.

FCCE controls an extensive professional digital archive consisting of more than 12,000 hours, starting in the 80s and leading up to today. That amount keeps growing, as FCCE’s ENG-teams visit all major film festivals, music events, award ceremonies and fashion shows all over the world, to interview the top people from each industry as well as filming at opening nights and red carpet events. From this material, we produce daily items, festival specials and tailor-made productions.

With a self-supporting multimedia production outfit including 25 edit sets, HD cameras, studios in Amsterdam and Nairobi and our own in-house audio recording studios, we can deliver our distinctive programs and produce for third parties, at a very competitive price; ready to use for all media.

Besides visiting press junkets, we also facilitate these events by working together with Hollywood studios, event organizers, brands and producers who want to promote their movies, music or anything else. We’ll bring a professional team and deliver all the technical equipment required to make high-quality video items, shot on time and on budget.

In April 2013, FCCE has been awarded by the international Television of Academy with an EMMY Award for the groundbreaking cross-platform project The Entertainment Experience.
