Call the best places and ask about a student rate... they love that. ; )

I know bonolabs (see ad to the right of page) has special student programs.

I would suggest looking at it as an educational opportunity. Find a transfer house near you and sit in on the session. You'll get much more out of it that way, even if you have to pay a little extra.

What you should go for isn't just the cheapest, but rather a place that's both student friendly and fully professional and up to date. The whole reason for student films is to learn how it really works, so going with somebody's garage rig would be a disservice to your education.

In the olden days, the late Sid Solow of CFI used to be very nice to students. He figured that somewhere among them was the next Coppola or Spielberg, and he'd have a loyal customer in the future. FotoKem was the other very student-friendly place back then, and they're also very cutting edge today.

Ask your professors. They'll probably know where your recent predecessors have had good and bad experiences. If there are enough other students doing the same thing, you might go as a group to the vendors and see if you can get a volume price.

BTW, is Alexis Krasilovsky still teaching at CSUN? She used to pull focus for me long long ago.....
