Cinelab London, one of the world's leading film laboratories, has expanded its digital services by merging with On Set Tech, one of the UK's leading digital imaging and dailies facilities. The new venture creates the only UK company to offer both film and digital services - from pre-production to dailies deliverables – under one roof.

As well as Cinelab London's current services - including the 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 - they will now also offer digital imaging services, custom-tailored digital dailies, colour and workflow support in the expanded full-service offering, which will trade under the Cinelab London brand.

We will collectively continue to add value to productions making great content, whether originating on film or digital formats.

The two companies have been collaborating closely for a number of years and in addition to sharing secure premises at Cinelab London’s Slough laboratory, have already completed multiple complex and rewarding feature projects, including the Sir Elton John biopic 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

Following the merger, Adrian Bull (above, centre) will remain as Cinelab London CEO, and On Set Tech MDs Joshua Callis-Smith (above right) and Simon Chubbock (left) will become CTO and COO respectively of the new venture.

"This is a real milestone for Cinelab London, it's an exciting time for the whole company." says Adrian Bull. "I have known Joshua and Simon 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."
