by the way

shooting 720X480 resolution to 35mm means effectively filling the picture area of 1828X 1332. it is a significant scale. i have done it for people. but the results aren't bad. but they are what you would expect. also depends on the action in the footage, as well as lighting.

we can talk more if you would like.

I'm shooting a feature in FL on HDV, 720p 24. How does this format fend on a 35mm print? We would like to get one if possible, I an arrange to send some sample material for a test if it is possible. Send me an email: jjfb985@gmail.com, I'd like to disscuss it and possibly get some prices.

it boils down to resolution. 2k academy formatting is 1828 X 1332. you will need a proportional blow-up that scales the 720p to fit this resolution. i would be happy to shoot you out a demo test of your material. my email is service@opticalcameraservice.com

I will need a hard drive with your final output at the highest resolution and best quality(least compression) possible. i will take care of any blowups or linear to logrithmic conversions.

the film recorders shoot out cineon or DPX image sequences. I will handle this conversion.

lets talk soon,
