Hey guys,

We're trying to budget out color correction costs in post for an upcoming feature being shot on the Varicam. Any rough estimates for ok to good to great correction for a 120 minute piece? I'm sure there are different levels of quality...which ones do you prefer?

Thanks.

Figure on three eight-hour days (24 total) minimum to color-correct a feature shot-by-shot. It can get quite expensive.

I've done it as fast as eight hours total but that was correcting the first shot of a scene and then just applying that correction over all the shots until the next scene.
