Thomson moves labs to new Village facility

Technicolor film also to relocate

In a bid to create the biggest one-stop post production shop in Gotham, Thomson on Thursday night formally christened its new digital post-production facility in the old Shooting Gallery building on Leroy Street in the West Village, and the company announced plans to move its Technicolor film labs from its existing home on 44th Street to the same location.

Thomson promises its studio, ad, broadcast and cable customers a “new robust palette of services and resources in Lower Manhattan” that adds to its recent acquisitions in Pacifica Media Affiliates, VidFilm and Still in Motion.

The new building will feature a screening room and nine post-production suites with state-of-the-art technology.

In coming months the facility will be hard-wired with for high-speed data networks to link to its locations in L.A., London and Montreal. Industry vet Dan Pane, veepee of Technicolor D-Film, will head up the new lab operation.

Shortage of post-production facilities has been cited as a shortcoming by some producers working in Gotham.

Thomson will be vying with existing Gotham post-production players Moving Images, Magno Sound & Video and Lablink and DuArt.
