I have 10'000 feet of 16mm, and i am trying to get a ball park figure of what it would cost to transfer all of my takes to digi beta tapes. I belive its about 4 hours worth of shots. Any help to find a general idea of this cost would be helpful.

According to the rates of DUART in NYC, to process color negative 16mm film it costs $0.14 per foot.
An unsupervised digital overall color corrected transfer to Digibeta costs $0.28 per foot.
Therefore it is a total of $0.42 per foot for processing and transfer.
For 10,000 feet your total would be $4200.
I believe 10,000 feet would give you about 4 and a half hours.
By the way I am in a similar circumstance. I needed to find out the same exact information for myself. I also have about 10,000 feet alotted for a film project I'm working on.

Hi,

I did a very good attended best light pass with scene by scene correction at DuArt. I would recomend them, we were charged 2 hours for about 50 minutes of running time. They recleaned the film after grading before the transfer. It was the cleanest film I have ever seen!
