Into the world of Film

All the greats (Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen, ect.) started with a hand held camera, shaky video footage and the occasional ‘why did I even think to film this?’ moments. In reality, making it in the film industry all comes down to experience, passion and ultimately exposure; and currently your backyard of Portland Or. is offering one of the best exposure opportunities for all aspiring film makers. The 38th annual Portland International Film Festival. Submission have begun and range from August 19th- November 14th. Now is YOUR moment. Submit a film!

But the digital lab doesn’t just stop at providing the best in pre and production stages of filming. We also offer  the top of the line software for all stages of post production.
