• The Authentic 'Film' Look

    Add real grain and texture to your digital content without the need for any effects or filters!
     

    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

    Prepare

    source

    Follow our guidelines on preparing the media. Deliver the media to our lab or upload it to our server

    Film

    recording

    We use our state-of-the-art Film Recorders to create a scanner-friendly 35mm print

    Film

    scanning

    We scan the 35mm print and use our technology to achieve an authentic 'Film' look

    Final

    delivery

    Data can be delivered to you as a ProRes or DPX

  • PLEASE NOTE:
    • Different settings are applied to 35mm prints made for scanning. These prints are not suitable for projection. CLICK HERE for 35mm prints suitable for cinema projection.
    • This technology is in an experimental stage. We will make the colours as close to the original as possible but the final image will be subject to slight colour change due to the nature of film and the way the different emulsions react to each other. These changes are an essential part of the desired ‘film’ effect.

  • SOURCE REQUIREMENTS

    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.
