New boutique picture post-production company, Brick and Mortar, has now officially launched in Glasgow.

One of the flagship features of Brick and Mortar is its co-ownership of Scotland’s first DCI compliant grading and Dolby mixing theatre with the team at Savalas Post. The new theatre is based in Film City and is the first ever dual-purpose theatrical projector-based grading and mixing environment of its kind in the country, “offering filmmakers a unique and immersive environment for the final stages of colour grading and mixing and a major incentive for feature productions to conduct everything from dailies and VFX reviews up to theatrical grades and final mixes in the country.”

Brick and Mortar’s focus will be on offline editorial, 4k HDR colour grading and picture finishing services.

The company has made “significant” up-front investments in offline and picture-finishing technology, including Baselight systems and Scotland’s first and only DCI compliant grade auditorium.

Prior to the official announcement, the team have been operating for the past year on high-end commercials as well as their first five feature films, including Leonora in the Morning Light and Spilt Milk.

The colour department led by Senior Colourist Tom Cairns (ex-Molinaire, Twickenham Film Studios, Dirty Looks). From the main facility at Trinity House in Glasgow, the company houses “new and comfy” offline suites as well as two Baselight grading theatres, high-end remote review facilities and advanced media storage and management solutions.

“After a lengthy R&D phase over the last few years, we’re really excited and honoured to introduce Brick and Mortar to the market at Berlinale in what is shaping up to be a propulsive year for feature film production in Scotland. We’re starting out with a truly great team driving some really exciting new suites and technology, with the only projector-based grading theatre in the country we’re looking to attract some great filmmakers to cut, grade and mix their films in Scotland with ourselves and with the sound expertise available through Savalas’ audio department.” said Jack Lang, Co-founder and Editor at Brick and Mortar.
