Hello

I came to know that "Iraq In Fragments" was shot on DVX100a and blown to 35mm film for theatrical release. Do you guys know whether it was shot on plain DVX100a or any kind of compression software like andromeda was used. The footage looks excellent but i doubt if some kind of 35mm adapters or conversion technologies were used( other than just color correction)

One more question I have guys. The HVX200 is HD and DVX100b is SD. when footage from these two is blown on 35mm film, would it be there a large difference between these two. Did anyone had a chance to look at this?

I am planning for a feature film for theatrical release(regional film),but my budget is low. Just getting confused with which camera should i go. If I get a DVX100B and shoot, Will it be acceptable for theatrical release?

There was already a long discussion about this film here:

There were no 35mm adapters or anything like Andromeda used. But check out the thread, there's lots in there.

Andromeda is a camera modification and not software. It's kind of the opposite of compression allowing you to bypass the dv compression codec.

IIF was shot onto minidv tape.

They will look different on film as one will be higher resolution than the other.

I don't understand what you are saying exactly. What do you mean by regional film? If you mean something very local then it seems unlikely you could afford a blow-up, so you might have to rely on whatever digital projection there is locally. Theatrical release usually means a fairly wide release because prints are very, very expensive to make. Realistically if you are really low budget and doing something for local release then you are probably going to be playing back off MiniDV or digibeta at best although this may come to change in the near future. I guess it depends on lots of stuff.

There have been films shot on the dvx100a that have had theatrical release, although the bias is obviously towards films shot on film.

The HVX will look better blown up to film, since there is more data to start with. Iraq in Fragments was shto on both a DVX100 and a DVX100a, then blown up to HD via TIFF and a special codec for 35mm out.
