Village Roadshow will relaunch the former Atlab Queensland film processing lab in May, a year after its original closure.

The Village Roadshow Digital Film Laboratory will offer services such as 16mm/35mm colour negative film processing as well as digital HD video or data rushes reporting in conjunction with post-production house The Post Lounge.

The Lab will be largely staffed by Atlab Queensland’s former key employees including general manager Gary Keir.

The company will be hoping to snare work for the latest instalment in the US blockbuster Narnia series, which is understood to be in the final stages of confirming its Queensland-based shoot, as well as TV series such as The Elephant Princess.
