Hi all.

I would like to know if there is anyone that knows where I could get the cheapest possible film print for a 2K Anamorphic Scan. I've heard that TAIWAN is good but I can't find any companies there. I would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty sure that we're one of [ if not the ] lowest here in the US. Check us out and give us a call, and I'll try to match or beat whoever's out there.

I did some checking on the web awhile ago and found Indian labs were very inexpensive. They do a ton of release printing over there for the major studios in addition to their domestic product for release in India. IIRC I read an article in about an Indian lab that was very proud of their quick turnaround on a DI to release print. They did it in a matter of a few weeks for....$24k US if my rupee to dollar calculator was correct. On a rush job!

Another advantage, they speak English (mostly) over there.

You don't say where you are from Fredrik but depending on what you want to use the print for you could ask your local lab to make you a 'joined' print which should be really cheap. They join up all their short ends to make up a roll of stock. It does mean you will almost certainly have joins through some of the frames. But if you can accept that it could be a cheap alternative.

film print for a 2K Anamorphic Scan.

Maybe I've missed something . . . but it's not clear to me what exactly you are looking to do. A print for a scan? Wouldn't you scan the negative?

I think he means 'the cheapest print FROM' a scan rather than FOR a scan, ie. a film out from a DI.
Why he doesn't just stay on film I don't know.
