Couldn't he just have it scanned on an Arri film scanner for DI and then print back if needed? Just curious...3 Perf always seamed cool to me but people seam to avoid it like the plague because its harder to work with...seams like a good choice...Same with 2 perf...Saves film stock doesn't!?
Plenty of 3 perf camera's around, just specify it with the rental house. Be aware that not only will making a release print be impractical, you won't even get a real lab report on your negative; you won't be able to check the image until it's transferred to video. (All the projectors are 4 perf.) Also, you have to be a little more vigilant about hairs in the gate because there's less room for error.

3-perf and 2-perf are great ways to reduce cost and make it possible to use film stock on a shoot. Another great combination with those formats is to buy recans or short ends. We've got a few productions going on right now on ends. Using half the film and paying less than half the price for film stock will hopefully keep film around a little longer.
