Hello everyone,

I am resident in France and I am preparing a short film this summer in S-16 format (B&W). In searching the Net, I found a company located in Burbank, "Pro8mm", that offers packages including films, processing and scanning in ProRes 422. It looks very professional ! Has anyone worked with this company?

Pro8mm does a great job of keeping 8mm film alive. There are many opinions about this that have been discussed here. There Super 16 packages are for Fuji stock. I think that you can find the same rates if not cheaper for B&W at many other places. Many labs now offer scanning to ProRes files at very competitive rates, because ProRes is a real time codec. ProRes 4444 is only marginally less in quality than a dpx files. It is a tenth the size. But for black and white, you won't really need 4444, ProRes HQ will do. Depending upon how much film you shoot, you can get a very cheap deal at many different labs. Pro8mm's rates are for color neg, it should be a little cheaper for black and white.
