Is there a place that will combine developing and telecine at a discounted price?

I'm shooting a 16mm silent B&W short film and we're finishing up next weekend. I was wondering if there was a lab that would develop my film, and telecine the footage onto miniDv for a discounted price. We're sending about 4 rolls of 100 foot Trix 160speed film and 2 rolls of 100 foot plusX 100 speed film, making 600 feet total. I've never used a telecine lab before because we have a telecine at school, but to be honest it looks pretty terrible, and I want a good digital copy of this most recent film. Student discounts appreciated.


Thanks in advance!

Don't know what YOUR school's process is like, but most schools just do an untimed rank telecine of your workprint that (understandably) is always disappointing quality wise.

Just be sure when you get the film developed that you don't run the extra cost of also getting a workprint done, you won't need it since you're sending it to digital anyways.

But most labs do both processing & telecine in house. Shop around a bit.

I just got back from an hour session at Monaco here in SF where I had my film both processed & telecine'd. The price wasn't excellent, but I'm happy with the quality of the uncompressed SD footage.

The prices in Southern California are phenomenally better though.

Yale Film and Video is pretty good. Their telecine is a bit pricey and I haven't tried it. They may have a student dicount. I have been using Colorlab in Maryland. They do a great job and are more affordable. They don't process reversal, though. I think they do student discount.
