Dublin post house Windmill Lane has become the first facility in Ireland to buy a Baselight colour grading system.

The addition will allow it to compete more effectively in the Irish features market.

The company has established relationships with film laboratories in London and with London post house The Mill to support its need for services not available in Ireland, such as 2K and 4K scanning.

“This is part of our commitment to the Irish film industry,” said Tim Morris, director of Facilities for Windmill Lane Pictures.

“2K and 4K data grading via Baselight was the last link in the chain toward providing complete DI services to our clients.”

Windmill Lane Ltd has provided post services for several films from Irish director Jim Sheridan, including In America, Get Rich and Die Tryin'.

It has also worked on American productions shot in Ireland such as King Arthur and Veronica Guerin.

Baselight is a resolution independent colour grading system made by Filmlight.
