Need some advice here on a sailing documentary which I have shot on S16 with an Arriflex SR3 camera.
After a lot of struggles and failures, I have reached 50% of what I really wanted to achieve. Anyways, I have started assembling the footage. Cinelab Mass., has done a good job.
I have the negatives scanned to 1080p HD without timecode. Few editor friends of mine suggested that I get the negatives scanned again with a timecode and then with a final cut timeline get a 2K scan and grading done the way we do for movies.
I wish to showcase the documentary in film festivals.
Do you think an HD output won't do justice? Generally,what formats are documentaries shown in film festivals?
advice and suggestions welcome.
