Who we are

 & what we do

Technology and skills in-house

Zodiak Belgium has all skills in-house or at least at their fingertips… From the first idea to the finished product, we cover it.

We also have an in-house post production department with a large number of editing rooms running the latest technology providing the power and flexibility to meet the most demanding creative editorial challenges.

On top we are located at the AED Studios site and in close contact with studio facilities including many studios, a water-tank studio and even an heliport.

Own tax-shelter division

Our Tax Shelter department, Added Value,  connects high end drama production with business investments.  Nieuw Texas, Tom & Harry, SOS112, GR5, Familie, De Buurtpolitie, … are some of our latest creations. For more information use the Added Value tab in the righthand corner.
