The Authentic 'Film' Look
We can record your digital content on real 35mm motion picture film and re-scan back to digital to achieve the authentic 'film' look
HOW IT WORKS
Follow our guidelines on preparing the media. Deliver the media to our lab or upload it to our server
We use our state-of-the-art Film Recorders to create a scanner-friendly 35mm print
We scan the 35mm print and use our technology to achieve an authentic 'Film' look
Data can be delivered to you as a ProRes or DPX

Data can be supplied in the following formats:
Option 1: DCP
DCPs are easy to handle as they are a relatively small size and offer a high level of security. This method also gives the best match in terms of colours. The data in DCPs are stored in device-independent XYZ colourspace and we convert these to film colourspace using our colour profile.
Option 2: Cineon or DPX sequence, 10-bit LOG, 24 frames/sec, 2K resolution
This option gives you the highest possible quality as this is a completely lossless format, but the least convenient format to deal with. The amount of data required to store a 90-minute feature can take 1–2 TB of data. In order to match the colours properly, DPX or Cineon sequences should also be graded for our lab using our colour profile.
Option 3: HD ProRes source graded for REC.709 colorspace
We also accept ProRes format. Before sending us source material please check the colours on a calibrated REC.709 viewing device. In terms of quality this format is similar to DCP. Remember to consider the security of this media when transferring, as this format offers no encryption or security protection.
