Hi,

Simply put, I may need to transfer some 35mm in LA around the end of April. It's just a test/fun thing so cost is an issue, and I'm not even sure whether it needs to be supervised or not (that'll depend on the cost issue again.) There'll be no more than about 15 minutes of material.

I'd ideally like to go to either data on a hard disk, or failing that PAL video. I have no idea who's good, who's affordable, inclined to be nice to nobodies, or capable of doing data or PAL in the area.

Suggestions of who to talk to are most welcome. Sorry to be so inspecific, I've no idea even where to start!

Phil

I tend to only work with commercial houses...

but The Syndicate is good...Encore Hollywood, Complete Post, Riot, Company 3 of course...

They'll all be the most expensive, but at least they'll give you a starting point. You really do get what you pay for though. I have no idea about rates since I'm never involved in that. But there are tons of places.

If none of those places work, then try la411.com and just go through it.

Best of luck.

Word of caution..stay away from Magic Film & Video....and especially Red Navel.

I have had good, affordable luck with Fotokem.

Modern Film & Video did the dailies on my last project, and did a very nice job. I am pretty sure we will use them for the online (to D5) as well, they do nice work.

All the above companies do very good work as well. I would say just about any large post company will do a good job.
