LONDON — Picture Shop (www.pictureshop.com), which is a part of Streamland Media, will open a new dailies facility at Pinewood Studios, just west of London, in early 2022. The new lab will offer a full range of dailies services, including four grading rooms; opportunities to collaborate with creatives from Pinewood’s theatres; and secure, high-speed connections to a cloud-based content management and collaboration system.
The new lab will be led by Picture Shop head of front-end services (UK) Chris Barrios, who previously led dailies operations for Picture Shop in Los Angeles. Barrios (pictured) brings more than 20 years of post production experience to his new role, including dailies processing, color, engineering and facility management.
“Picture Shop Pinewood will bring a global network of talent and technology to the historic Pinewood Studios lot,” says John Fleming, UK managing director for Streamland Media’s Picture Shop. “Based on the growing need for front-end production support, we are building an innovative dailies facility to serve our clients at the highest possible level in an ideal location.”
“This is an amazing opportunity to envision, then to build, what we know is needed by a creative community at work around the world,” adds Barrios. “Picture Shop services at Pinewood will be supported by a tremendous depth of global talent, backed by our own technological approach all in a new, purpose-built facility.”
Picture Shop’s nearly 4,000 square-foot space at Pinewood will initially be able to run up to 10 projects concurrently under studio-level security protocols. The facility will be securely connected to Picture Shop locations around the globe, offering access to the company’s talent pool. Streamland’s Pulse will offer filmmakers a cloud-based collaboration tool with a worldwide reach. Some of Picture Shop’s recent credits include Black Widow, Operation Fortune, Andor, Willow, His Dark Materials and Aladdin.
