Toronto S8 transfers
Posted 20 November 2008 - 06:41 PM
Being on a budget myself, I tend to go where the deals are, while acknowledging that it is important to expect quality results. In the event that people swear by one place or another, I'd be very interested in hearing about it.
Sorry for such a geographically-specific topic, but I'm just wondering where to go.

(reversal only, process and transfer)
(reversal only, process and transfer and print-duplication. Don't let the name fool you, they handle 64T colour as well)
(negative processing only)
There are also additional transfer facilities which handle reversal, negative and widescreen (super-duper) 8:
Personally I have used Exlusive for years and they were very generous deferring some costs when we made the feature Sleep Always so I feel loyal to them and I get my transfers done by Photoplays as it is run by my long-time friend Mitch Perkins. For negative of course I would use Niagara.

I've been having all my tri-x/plus-x cross-processed as a negative. If you're not planning on projecting your film, run it as a neg instead of reversal. It can give you an increased range or expanded latitude making it much more practical for telecine. (film becomes more forgiving in under/overexposure capturing more detail in the shadows/highlights).
I know Niagara Custom Lab is running this custom process and a few other processes. (I just had some 7217 200t super 8 bleach bypassed
