3 perf projection
Posted 15 March 2006 - 06:28 AM
As the post supervisor on an uncoming feature, I am suggesting to the producers that they look into 3 perf shooting since they are shooting flat 1.85:1 and we are doing an entire DI. My question is about projecting daily rushes. They did want to project each days developed rushes for approval after processing. If they shoot 3-perf, are they going to have a problem projecting these rushes or are 3-perf projectors available to hire for such uses?

You best bet is renting an Arri Locpro. It does 3 perf and is portable enough so that you can take it with you on location. Otherwise check with labs, as they are they only ones who actually deal with 3 perf, which is not a standard projection format as you well know.
Thanks - I'll pass that back to them. Actually this shoot is 100% studio, so that perhaps helps a little in that the projector doesn't have to be *that* portable. It could be set up once and left for the duration of the shoot.
