Herbert G. Kloiber & Constantin Film Set Up High End Productions


Dr. Herbert G. Kloiber and Constantin Film have aligned to launch the joint company High End Productions, which will specialize in European scripted series for the international market.

High End Productions is led by Jonas Bauer, an alum of STUDIOCANAL and Tandem Productions, as managing director. The company is based in Vienna.

Kloiber said: “After 50 years of entrepreneurial activity, I decided to take a two-year break. But there are still some exciting projects waiting for first-class production. Both best-selling novels and great historical figures have always fascinated me personally. I would like to realize these with one of the world’s foremost media companies.”

Martin Moszkowicz, CEO, and Oliver Berben, deputy CEO, of Constantin Film, said: “It is with great pride that we announce the cooperation between Constantin Film group and Dr. Herbert G. Kloiber—two of the greatest independent European players in film, streaming and television. In a time in which ideas and creativity are the gold nuggets of the entire entertainment industry, we want to give a home to many creative people in Europe in High End Productions in order to tell local stories with an international, European DNA all over the world. We have found the perfect head for the company in Jonas Bauer, with his instinct and experience.”

Bauer added: “Dr. Kloiber and Constantin are among Europe’s most successful producers. This mutual start-up, High End Productions, is a company that can leverage the entire know-how, contacts to the creative community and the international network of both shareholders to create exciting, international event productions for the television market. I am very much looking forward to this new task.”
