I am a student filmmaker who has just begun shooting. Can anyone recommend a lab in or around New York that will process 1200' of reversal (Kodak Ektachrome 7250) normally AND do a good best lite of that footage? Thanks.

The Kodak website has a lab directory with the processes provided by each lab --- up to date as the information that the labs supply to Kodak:

They are in the bottom floor of an old apartment building on 1st and 1st by the F train. They are dirty but they are quick and I love 'em. The only catch is they process reversal film with the VNF process not that E-6 thing. Even though I've shot a few rolls of the new Ektachrome stock and had it processed there VNF style pushed a stop and thought the projected film looked quite nice with a lot of solid rich color and blacks.

But I wouldn't get anything transferred to video there. I'd bring it somewhere else.

Last year, producer Chris Wilcha shot a "bumper" clip for the Sundance Channel featuring me and Bob Moussally of Pac-Lab discussing the use of "China Girl" for color control. Here's the clip:

As you may know, I developed the Kodak Laboratory Aim Density (LAD) and "LAD Girl" control method used by many labs to help control color balance and duplication. "LAD Girl" was recently featured in a photo exhibit at Harvard called "Girls on Film". And I was honored with an Academy Technical Achievement Award presented by Renee Zellweger in March 2001.
