Little Dot Studios, the online video distribution and production company that manages YouTube channels, Facebook pages, and social video content for global sports, TV and consumer brands, has teamed with All3Media Deutschland to establish a new label in Germany.
The unit will operate with local German teams from offices in Munich and Berlin and will be overseen by Wayne Davidson, MD of content and acquisition and distribution at Little Dot, and Mark Stehli, director for production and corporate development at All3Media Deustchland.
The new German team has already produced digital first content for Volkswagen, Lamborghini, Bentley and Suzuki and is currently in development and production on a number of projects for various clients.
Additionally, Little Dot Studios have confirmed agreements in Germany with Motorvision, sports news agency SID (Sport-Informations-Dienst) and actor Axel Stein and presenter Matthias Malmedie, for their YouTube channel, Axel & Matthias, to carry out social distribution, YouTube channel management and rights management work.
It also has several key agreeements due to be closed in the coming weeks with German-speaking broadcasters, sports rights holders and content partners.
Dr. Markus Schäfer, CEO at All3media Deutschland, said: “This cooperation with Little Dot Studios offers highly attractive potential for customers and for both partners, since it combines Little Dot Studios´ digital channel management competence with the production skills acquired by all3media Deutschland.
“This means that we can not only offer media enterprises the possibility to optimise their video offerings via YouTube and social media channels, but in addition, also provide brands and companies with perfectly presented messages – from the development of a content strategy and production to content distribution aimed specifically at the right target groups and achieving optimum reach on all relevant online platforms.
“Over and above this, our existing customers have the possibility to benefit from the broadened competence gained from our partnership with Little Dot Studios.”
Davison added: “Little Dot Studios has developed significant expertise and knowledge in creating social and digital native content and building audiences for our producer, broadcaster, brand and sport partners on YouTube, Facebook and social platforms. Working together with All3media Deutschland, with our new German unit, we are in a unique position to focus attentions on the German-speaking market and help partners set themselves apart from the competition.”
