Gotham lab gives up traditional film processing

Venerable Gotham film lab DuArt is going digital.

DuArt Film and Video, founded in 1922, is giving up its traditional film processing operations to expand its digital services, aiming to accommodate the growing digital needs of its clients.

New initiatives will be added to a digital menu that includes HD mastering, sound design, sound mixing and DVD and Blu-ray authoring and replication. A mastering theater is under construction, with a small soundstage skedded to be completed this fall.

Two new audio recording studios also have recently been completed, with three more on the way.

Although DuArt’s last roll of film will be processed by the company this month, film services such as restoration, scanning and recording will still be offered by the org, which will outsource the duties.

DuArt has played a part in a long line of Hollywood and indie pics including “When Harry Met Sally,” “Fargo,” “She’s Got to Have It” and “Down by Law,” among others, and also was the film lab of CBS news operations for many years.
