Commercials / Advertising Services

Cinelab Film & Digital is committed to supporting the renaissance of shooting on film for advertising creatives around the globe.


It is no secret that celluloid film offers a completely different artistic feel to digital,  to create stunning original looks many commercial directors and dop's have turned to film as their creative medium of choice when shooting commercials, in entirety or as part of a digital production.   Photochemical effects such as bleach bypass and pull/push processing are available to add more magic.   

To support the revival in shooting on film – Cinelab Film & Digital runs day and night shifts for film processing, film scanning, graded film dailies and electronic delivery of rushes for editorial and online screeners for editorial. From this point, content is digital, secure and accessible for the global client.
