Warner Bros. De Lane Lea have announced that their new state-of-the-art dailies facility has opened its doors on-site at Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden.
The bespoke, purpose-built facility features a 48 seat 4K screening room and a 4K VFX review theatre with Baselight and Daylight grading and dailies software. Services include on-set and on-location dailies, film scanning, and an impressive SDI dark fibre connectivity to Warner Bros. De Lane Lea’s post-production facility in Soho.
Cara Sheppard, Director of Warner Bros. De Lane Lea says “It’s fantastic to bring a little bit of Soho to Leavesden, and to give our clients a full end-to-end service. Our new dailies facility offers exceptional levels of service and the highest level of security to deliver time and cost efficiencies to productions. Our award-wining talent and highly-skilled technicians capture and deliver images as they were intended to be seen by the Director and Cinematographer.”
Tim Grover, Post Production Supervisor says, “I was extremely excited to tour the new picture dailies facility and to meet the excellent team. It’s going to be a great addition to Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden and I really look forward to using the service. The dark fibre link to Warner Bros. De Lane Lea is a real bonus.”
Earlier this year Warner Bros. De Lane Lea opened its new picture services division in Soho which includes 4K HDR Baselight X grading theatres, flame online suites and a full mastering and QC department, and welcomed new talent including world-renowned Colourists Asa Shoul and Peter Doyle.
Last year the company announced it will be cementing its future in Soho by moving to the purpose-built state-of-the art Ilona Rose building in 2021 which is currently under construction.
