Cinelab London will be the only UK company to offer both film and digital services from pre-production through to deliverables all under one roof

Cinelab London, one of the world’s leading Film Laboratories has expanded its digital services by joining with one of the UK’s leading Digital Imaging and Dailies Facilities On Set Tech. 

This exciting new venture creates the only UK Company to offer both film and digital services – from pre-production to dailies deliverables – under one roof. A unique full-service offering from one team (future trading will be under the Cinelab London brand).

In addition to Cinelab London’s current services, 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. 

Everything from pre-production through to deliverables, creating a new world industry leader in the feature film and episodic production sector.

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 projects, including; 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 


Following the merger, 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.

Adrian Bull, CEO, Cinelab London says: “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.
