In mixed media productions where DI is not an option, is it possible to transfer mini-DV to Super 16mm negative for inclusion in the AB roll? Please let me know what the options are for mixing in a 5% DV and 95% Super 16 production. Thanks,
Correct me if I'm wrong everyone but isn't super 16 just the gate size?

The old EBR "Image Transform" device went to 16mm b&w separations from NTSC. There might be some kinescope companies that will transfer video to 16mm, maybe Super-16. There are a few companies that advertize video-to-16mm:
DV.Film in Texas might do it.
Most places with film recorders like a Celco or Arrilaser would probably recommend you transfer the DV to 35mm and then make an optical printer dupe to Super-16 as needed.
Since Super-16 is not intended as an end destination, but is meant either to be transferred to video or blown-up to 35mm, your best bet is to leave the DV footage in video until after the Super-16 project has been blown-up to 35mm (even if done optically), and then splice in the DV-to-35mm material into the 35mm IN.
