Part of a project I am shooting in super 16 (24fps) was accidentally filmed at 30 fps.
I know that for ntsc this is not a problem but I am wondering what might happen down the road.
If we want to finish to HD are we now limited to 1080i?
Is this currently the best HD format to finish to for festival projection?
Do festivals ever project 720 P (24 fps)
Or do they ask for 1080i?
How about a film out. (thinking di not optical-especially now)

Would we transfer all the film to 1080i and print out to 24 frame film?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be great.

Thanks

I can't comment on the HD aspect but obviously the section of the footage filmed at 30 fps would be a little underexposed. I assume that the exposure was set initially for 24fps throughout. If you were shooting neg, you would be quite safe except for perhaps a little increase in grain.
