Digital Orchard has relocated to new facility on a 26 acre farm just outside Chalfont St Giles.

The facility is 10 minutes from Leavesden Studios and 15 minutes from Pinewood Studios, two major hubs of UK filmmaking.

Digital Orchard says it is looking to expand its services with the relocation, and also push forward on a commitment to become a net zero facility by 2023.

Digital Orchard said the new facility aims to seamlessly combine film and digital whilst broadening the range of film services available in the UK.

Digital Orchard played a part in the renaissance of film when supporting ‘Murder on the Orient Express’, which was being shot on 65mm film. The team invested in the R&D on a brand new 65mm scanner from LaserGraphics, and they also forged a pioneering partnership with Kodak to support the regeneration of film as a commodity.

“Kodak and Digital Orchard formed a services partnership in 2019, merging the leading photochemical expertise of Kodak lab with Digital Orchard’s innovation and talent in digital post- production, providing film makers with the confidence that their film is managed by a team of specialists,” said Antonio Rasura, Director of Motion Picture Services at Kodak.

Adding the Scanity 4k HDR to its offere and now with the capacity to also scan 8mm, Digital Orchard offers the full gamut of film scanning services: 8mm, 16mm, 35mm and 65mm.

Digital Orchard is also making a commitment to become a net zero facility by 2023.

“For me, the most important thing is about looking forward. It might have been 10 years, but Digital Orchard has only just begun its journey in the film and television industry. The entire team is focused on bringing new innovation and services to our clients that will enable them to tell stories in ways we can hardly imagine today,” said Callum Just, founder of Digital Orchard.
