I expect Stanley Productions would do it happily. Most post houses are capable of doing this sort of thing but tend to be difficult to persuade (for some godforsaken reason).

Either option will be extremely expensive because this is the UK.

I find it a bit annoying really because I am trying to make the process of making things as cheap as possible. Festivals wanting digi beta screening copies just make it so hard for people trying to make things on a budget.

If it comes to it, just dump it out to miniDV and have it dubbed to digi. Probably nobody will notice.

I sent you a PM but when I checked sent mail it came up empty.

Anyway what I said was, if I can reuse original tapes then there´s no costs I´m happy to help a colleague.

Let me know what the specs are.(Bars,Tone etc.)

Kieran.
