Hi folks, I am looking for some info on costs of 16mm for a student project (both processing and telecine), and was hoping some of the forum members have had recent experience with either Technicolor or Fotokem. I don't need exact quote figures, just ballpark on current prices if anyone has them, for filling out a budget.

I've only worked with 35mm and Deluxe, so I am chiefly looking for price-per-foot processing costs and average telecine experiences. Does it take roughly the same time and cost roughly the same amount to telecine a project of the same time length shot on 35mm?

Thank you for the help!

Mike

I'd say .10-.13/foot for normal processing, .03-.05/foot for telecine prep (though some houses will waive this if you do processing and transfer with them), and $250-$350/hr (plus the cost of tape stock) for telecine to HDCAM/SR, budgeting anywhere from 2-4 hours of telecine time for every hour of runtime, depending on the amount of attention it needs/how much attention you ask the operator to give your footage.

I'm pretty sure the rate structures are the same for S16 and 35, it's just that you get roughly twice the runtime per foot on S16.

hope that helps.
