Managing Directors
Michael Haacke

Michael Haacke

... began his career as an intern at the film lab of Bavaria Film GmbH.  After completing his internship, Michael took a permanent position in the dubbing department at Bavaria where, among other responsibilities, he created sound effects. After leaving Barvaria, he worked in the production and dubbing department at ARRI. Following this position, he worked as Production Manager for an American dubbing company in Munich, which was ultimately dissolved due to financial difficulties. He took over what remained of the production machines and founded FFS Film-& Fernseh-Synchron GmbH in Munich in 1971, which he runs to this day, together with Rainer Ludwig.

Rainer Ludwig

... after completing his studies in mechanical engineering, Rainer worked as an engineer for Siemens and Deckel in Munich.  In 1984, he switched gears to become the technical director of FFS Film- & Fernseh-Synchron GmbH.  As Michael Haacke’s  „right hand“, he learned all facets of dubbing and soon became instrumental in integrating new production technology as well as driving investment in new studios.  In 1998 he took over the shares of co-founder Dieter Wahl and has since co-lead the company with Michael Haacke.
