Heres a bit of a shock! I just got this message from iDallies:

Dear Freya,
Added to our comprehensive 24/7 Film and Digital Rushes service that is located near to Black Island Studios, i dailies can now Process and Spirit Telecine Transfer Super 8 negative film. This service will start on 1st November and each following Thursday for clients collection on Fridays. Each cassette will cost £50 with a minimum charge of £100 per delivered file. For more information, please contact sales@i-dailies.co.uk


I'm very impressed that iDallies really seem to be making an effort to provide real film services in the UK! They do come across as actually being interested in your business and they are actively using such modern marketing tools as a webpage and emails! (Hey none of the UK labs were ever really able to cope with the idea of email before).

Sadly they are still struggling a bit with the idea of clear communication, transparent pricing etc:
/?

Each cassette will cost £50 with a minimum charge of £100 per delivered file.


Does that mean if I process 2 cassettes it will cost £100?
If I process 3 cassettes is that £150?

I think so, but I'm left feeling unsure.

Please note when they say cassettes, I think they mean cartridges! ;)

Overall tho a big jump forward. It's a shame this is all happening so late in the day. :(

love

Freya

Wow, that's impressive - they must think there's a market for it. I guess they're just on about Vision negative film, the same as Todd-AO used to be.


...just a shame that with the demise of Fuji, the "Complete16" package deal is on its last legs for 16mm :(
