World’s First Mobile Film Lab Brings On-Site Processing Directly to Independent and Big-Budget Film Sets

New York, NY, Monday, June 15, 2015 --In its ongoing effort to support the film industry with the latest in filmmaking and post production technology, Alpha Grip is bringing the world's first mobile film processing center to directors and studios. The Alpha1 was created to response to filmmakers who prefer celluloid filmmaking.Operated by experienced and professional lab personnel, the Alpha1 Lab measures 42 feet long and transforms into a state-of-the-art film processing trailer capable of deployment to any film set or studio around the world. Complete with a dark room, workshop, 4k scanning capabilities and the ability to develop film at a rate of 50 ft./minute and up to 20,000 feet of film during an eight-hour shift, the Alpha1 Lab also works in conjunction with digital dailies companies, making post production more streamlined than ever before."The Alpha1 Lab is the answer shooting physical film on location," said John Tadros, Alpha Grip managing director. "We're excited at the prospect that every studio and director around the world who chooses to shoot on film can have an Alpha Lab available and deployed to their doorstep."Fully functional within two hours of arriving, filmmakers do not need to worry about power outages as the Alpha1 Lab is generator powered when docked. Additionally, the Alpha1 is an eco-friendly, Thames Water-licensed facility, featuring an onboard electronic chemical mixing lab through Kodak Kit chemistry, and houses all of its chemical waste for proper disposal at off-site facilities."The broad support of film we are seeing from studios and directors alike has been amazing," said Andrew Evenski, Kodak's president of Entertainment & Commercial Films. "Kodak is all in on film and we will continue to support creative ways to deliver the best products from the best people.
