Wondering if someone might be able to just give me a quick run through of the following:

1. Cost per foot/meter of developing?
2. Straight telecine transfer per foot/meter (I know places have mininums)?
3. Scene color correction telectin transfer per foot/meter?

What is the best way to get the film transferred to a digital format (digi Beta or other equivilent)? If the film is going to be cut digitally and subsequently cut into a digital format (DVD or other for screenings and festival submissions), with the potential to make a print, what is the best way to first access the footage on a transfer? I realize that if a print is going to need to be made, for a festival, that hurdle will need to be addressed through the edit, but in order to edit it, what would be necessary?

Thanks in advance for all replies!

Cheers,

Rod

Answers to all 3 questions can be found at San Francisco's very own Monaco website: http://www.monacosf.com

I've been told Monaco does standard def. telecine straight to hard drive now, that's your best option.

Editing digitally for a possible "film out" will require timecode settings for all your telecined footage that corresponds with your film negative.

Jonathan,

Thanks for the tip. I've actually used Monaco before to get film process and transferred. Kind of forgot though...
