As one of the foremost motion picture, television and post-production operation in the world, Warner Bros. Studio Operations (WBSO) is home to filmmakers globally with facilities in Burbank, New York, and the UK.
The 110-acre Burbank lot and nearby 32-acre Ranch facility collectively encompass 36 sound stages, 14 exterior sets, 20 re-recording stages, six ADR stages, and a complete range of production-related rental and service departments. From costume and props to set lighting and post-production sound, WBSO provides the necessary resources that enable a client’s vision to become a reality. Through the years, the Burbank facility has been home to many well-known and award-winning features and television series, including “A Star is Born” (1954), “Blade Runner” (1982), “Argo” (2012), “ER” (1994-2009), “Friends” (1994-2004), and “The Big Bang Theory” (2007-2019). Visitors can explore the inner workings of the Burbank lot by taking the Warner Bros. Studio Tour Hollywood, a behind-the-scenes experience featuring a comprehensive guided tour and culminating with the interactive exhibit, Stage 48: Script to Screen.
In 2012, WBSF opened Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden (WBSL), a 200-acre lot outside London that features 16 sound stages and support facilities for Warner Bros. and third-party productions. WBSL is also home to the hugely popular Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter. Additionally, Warner Bros. De Lane Lea, located in the Soho area of London, was acquired in late 2012 and is the leading sound mixing and post-production facility in the UK.
Complementing its sound and picture services in Burbank and the UK is WBSO’s acquisition of a post-production facility in midtown Manhattan. WB Sound New York provides sound design, supervision, editorial, re-recording, and ADR services with sound editorial design suites and picture editorial suites, plus New York’s largest re-recording stage, equipped with DigiDesign Control Surface..
