Hi, we just finished a big shoot a few weeks ago, and the film was sent to a lab which I had not used before. We shot factory sealed 5201 and all the stuff was outside at sunny 16. When appropriete, we used a pola opening up 2-3 stops to compensate. We got the film back and to me it all looks very dark and muddy. Some shots almost looked like Day for Night. I know a lot of this has to do with the transfer and we are going to have it retransfered somehwere else. I don't see how this stuff could look so under exposed. Even if we wouldn't have compensated for the pola, the most we could have been under is 2-3 stops. Shouldn't most telecine systems be able to bring this back up? My concern is the film may have been mis-processed. Any thoughts?
