When people shoot film in remote locations, far away from any film labs, or possibly in a country without one, what do they do with the exposed film? Is the film taken back home at the end of the shoot to be processed? Is it shipped to the nearest lab? Whenever I see a film shot in a remote jungle or some place I wonder what they did with the film and how they viewed dailies.

Usually there is a drop-off daily to a local airport and the film is flown-out to a city with a lab.
