About us
 
Brief history
 
 

Movielabs was established in 2000 by its founding member Mr. Jayesh Chheda, after he served Adlabs Films Limited (Now renamed as Reliance Media Works) for 19 years. Mr. Jayesh Chheda played a significant role in the growth of Adlabs as the leading Motion picture processing laboratory of India.

Movielabs was set-up with a fundamental aim to tap the growing market for regional and advertising films. In a short span, Movielabs has established itself as the leading motion picture laboratory for regional segment films in Bhojpuri, Marathi, Gujarati, Nepali and Assamese languages. Movielabs was the first laboratory to promote Super16mm as a choice for origination medium for regional films in the year 2003. This format is now an accepted standard among not only regional, but also amongst independent & advertising film-makers across India.

Movielabs moved into its current sprawling complex at suburban location of Goregoan, Mumbai, in 2008, which is very close to the hub of film activity. Movielabs was the first to recognize the potential for regional films at the time when Hindi films were dominating the Indian film landscape. Currently Marathi films are the first choice of audiences in the interiors of Maharastra and likewise Bhojpuri films in the Hindi heartland of UP, Bihar and Jharkhand.

Award winning Cinevator® technology
 
 

Cinevator® successfully combines digital and analogue technology to directly make cinema prints. With this technology, Movielabs will be able to save costs for films-makers who want to shoot digital but have to undergo a very expensive and time consuming process of making a film negative copy before striking release prints. With Cinevator®, they would be able to load the digital content, and strike film release prints with sound directly slapped on to the print without any additional cost. Cinevator will allow a director to have a test print at a nominal cost straight from the digital intermediate (DI) suite without going through a expensive post production process. Moreover, Cinevator® will allow a director to make a censor print and incorporate all the censor board changes without incurring additional cost. Cinevator® will also provide a breakthrough in film subtitling, as it can simultaneously incorporate subtitles in the digital data and output a print at no additional cost or time.

With Cinevator®, Movielabs will shorten the process of post production for film producers thus saving them cost and valuable time.
