Hello,

Does anyone have any praise for or war stories about working with Movielab in Rockville, Maryland? I am considering sending some film there for development and printing and was wondering if anyone on the forum had worked with them before.

Thanks,

Aaron

No, but I can tell you that Cinemalab in Colorado is my favorite lab right now. They do a great job at pretty good prices. Attention to detail and clean fresh chemicals. I also like Colorlab in Maryland.

I think they were the lab for one of the Star Trek movies in the early '80s, so they definitely know their stuff. IDK though. Some labs give little guys a hard time, don't know if you're a little guy though either.

My entire 16mm production class last semester used Movielab almost exclusively for processing (they're very cheap, and quite friendly), although a lot of us wound up taking our film elsewhere for telecine, as they use a flying spot that produces a lot of noise in the highlights. We all did digital edits, so I can't speak to the quality of their printing.

I had my first roll of Super16 I ever shot processed and telecined by Movielab. They are really nice people and the whole turnaround time was only a few days. The video can be seen here

YouTube doesn't do the footage justice. The conversion made it look really washed out...
