Hi. I was wondering if anyone can recommend a relatively cheap place to process and telecine 16mm film in San Francisco / Bay Area. Ideally, I'd like a one-stop shop place, but it doesn't have to be if it's cheaper or necessary to get it done at seperate places. I've already priced at Monaco Labs, but their 16mm-to-miniDV transfers run for $370 per hour. This is quite a bit over my budget.

Thanks!

Speaking candidly, I think monaco sucks. I've never had a good experience with them and for all the money SFSU and the academy pump into that place they shouldn't treat students like poop.... I send everything to Fotokem, shipping costs a little bit but I prefer them to the attitude of monaco. It's took two weeks to get 2 rolls of black and white reversal from monaco and when I complained they said maybe I should go somewhere else, so now i do. Also, forde does a decent job and that's in Seattle.

Get used to the cost of shooting film and just have it sent. Not worth the trouble in my opinion.
