DuArt Film and Video

DuArt Film & Video is an American film and recording studio founded in New York City by Al Young in 1922.[3] DuArt has been involved with a number of films over its history, such as Dirty Dancing, The Cider House Rules and Forrest Gump,[4] pioneering in a number of filmmaking technologies. Founder Al Young built one of the earliest continuous 35-millimeter processing machines in 1927, DuArt processed the first film in Eastmancolor negative in 1950, and DuArt also worked with CBS on EVR consumer video-player-based special-motion film in 1966.[3][5] In 1979, DuArt was presented with an Academy Award for Technical Achievement for their development of the Frame-Count cueing system. During the 1980s, the lab became an industry leader in Super-16mm blow-ups, enabling independent filmmakers the opportunity to compete in the theatrical marketplace with low-budgeted films. In 2000, owner and Chairman Irwin Young was awarded the Gordon E. Sawyer Award by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for technological contributions to the motion picture industry.[6]

In 2013, as DuArt began closing their film storage facilities, a number of film archives—including the Academy Film Archive, the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art, the UCLA Film & Television Archive, the George Eastman House, the Harvard Film Archive, and Anthology Film Archives—collaborated to find homes for thousands of orphaned films stored at DuArt, including elements for independent features, documentaries, student films, industrials, shorts, animation, and foreign films. The DuArt Collection at the Academy Film Archive is now home to over five hundred of these films.[7]

They recently opened their doors for anime dubbing, original animation, and commercials, with clients including 4Kids Entertainment, AnimeWho, The Pokémon Company International, Accel Animation, J. Kyle's Korner Entertainment and Mondo Media. Their notable works include Pokémon (Season 11 onward), Joe vs. Joe, and It's All Elementary (a new upcoming claymation television series created by J. Kyle Manzay). Winx Club Season 7, 8, and World Of Winx
