Kodak makes film deal with Pinewood


Kodak has made a deal to set up a new film processing lab at Pinewood Studios outside London as part of a long-term plan to support the use of physical film.

The photographic company has signed a five-year lease on part of Pinewood’s Ken Adam Building and Pinewood will also work with the company on promotional activity.

“We are keen to support the infrastructure for physical film for those directors and cinematographers who prefer this format,” said Nigel Bennett, director of creative services for Pinewood Group.

“Teaming up with Kodak to offer this enhances the growing portfolio of services Pinewood is now able to offer in the content and post-production arenas.”

Adapting to the digital age has proved a challenge for Kodak but the company has had strong and vocal support over the past couple of years from high-profile directors like Christopher Nolan, Quentin Tarantino and JJ Abrams, who prefer to shoot on film.
