What would be the best price I could expect to have 1800 ft of 35mm color (5279 MAYBE 5260) movie film processed and printed one light, best light for? ( this is in the US MAYBE Mexico if there's any place in northern Mexico that can do it and anyone KNOWS anything about Mexican labs.) I'm figuring maybe .15 cents a foot for the processing but have NO idea what printing would run. Thanks B)

I've heard MovieLab in MD is pretty good. They also seem to be the cheapest lab around. I'm about to send them 100' of 7222 for processing and printing (which, for just 100' is cheaper than a TC), I'll let you know how it turns out.

Terrific thanks, what kinda price they given ya per foot? I would imagine 35 won't be too far off that. OH, nevermind they listed it right there on the first page. .28 cents a foot for 35mm which would be $504 for 1800 ft. B)

Print arrived yesterday. 7222's grain notwithstanding, it's tack sharp. Excellent! Can't wait to test some color stock.

OOOH way cool :) . Where did you get the stock? That's the other thing is I'd like to find a source for print stock so once my lab is set up, I can start printing some stuff for editing on my flatbeds.
