Picture Shop Pinewood will occupy nearly 4,000 square feet and will include four grading rooms, access to Pinewood’s theaters, and secure, high-speed connections to a cloud-based content-management and collaboration system.
“Picture Shop Pinewood will bring a global network of talent and technology to the historic Pinewood lot,” says John Fleming, Picture Shop’s managing director in the U.K. “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.”
The new facility will be led by Chris Barrios, who previously led dailies operations for Picture Shop in Los Angeles. Barrios brings more than 20 years of postproduction experience to his new role.
“This is an amazing opportunity to envision and build what we know is needed by a creative community at work around the world,” says Barrios. “Picture Shop services at Pinewood will be supported by a tremendous depth of global talent in a purpose-built facility.”
Picture Shop Pinewood will initially be able to run up to 10 projects concurrently under studio-level security protocols. It will be securely connected to Picture Shop locations around the globe; Streamland’s Pulse will offer filmmakers a cloud-based collaboration tool with a worldwide reach.
Production, operations and support teams will be based at the facility, offering 24/7 client assistance.
Picture Shop’s recent credits include Black Widow, His Dark Materials and Aladdin.
