Genie’s going back into its bottle….the end of film processing.

Since 1987 we have handled film processing here at Genie but sadly 2014  will be our last full year.

Phase 1:

We are going to stop the analogue side to our business at 9th January 2015 and  we will try to  fulfill all our film processing orders whilst our chemistry remains fresh. After that we  will consign our film processors to oblivion, remove the chemistry, turn off the nitrogen, stop the dryers and close off the washes.

Phase 2:

We are streamlining and will be printing only A3 and bigger . We will be concentrating on our fine art printing and mounting services on a bespoke basis. Also on scanning of large batches of film from low end to high end.

Other areas will include: Image manipulation and digital asset management, metadata and archive management as we will still retain our specialised scanners .

As we transition, we will  need to turn ourselves upside down after 28 years in the same building.  The move over to these more focused areas  will cause some interruption to our workflow- at times, we may be a little hard to get hold of and we suggest you email us at with any questions.

Looking forward to the new  filmless Genie…..onwards and upwards!
