The new venture aims to offer both film and digital services - from pre-production to dailies deliverables – under one roof.
Cinelab and On Set Tech have announced a merger, which will trade under the Cinelab London brand.
The new venture aims to be the only UK company to offer offer both film and digital services - from pre-production to dailies deliverables – under one roof.
Cinelab London’s current offering - processing of all colour motion picture film gauges and providing the widest range of film scanners, delivery of secure film dailies and bespoke archive and restoration services, will be joined by digital imaging services, custom-tailored digital dailies, colour and workflow support.
The two companies have already collaborated for a number of years, and share secure premises at Cinelab London’s Slough laboratory. Projects they have worked on together include the feature biopic on Sir Elton John - ‘Rocketman’, Edgar Wright’s highly anticipated psychological horror ‘Last Night in Soho’, Prano Bailey-Bond’s British horror film ‘Censor’ and Will Sharpe’s historical drama ‘The Electrical Life of Louis Wain’.
Adrian Bull will remain as Cinelab London CEO, and managing directors of On Set Tech, Joshua Callis-Smith and Simon Chubbock, will become CTO and COO respectively of the new venture.
Bull said: “This is a real milestone for Cinelab London; it’s an exciting time for the whole company. I have known On Set Tech founders Joshua Callis-Smith and Simon Chubbock for many years and admired their approach to client service, the quality and dedication to their work, and the culture and team they have created at On Set Tech.
“I am delighted that we are moving forward together, sharing a vision and synergies to leverage each other’s strengths. We will collectively continue to add value to productions making great content, whether originating on film or digital formats. Combining our businesses enables us to further provide the very best talent and expertise in our continuing purpose to support all filmmakers.”
