Film scans in LA

I like Fotokem processing, but their scanning rates on inferior machines are per hour and rather expensive.

On my last 35mm project I developed and scanned with Fotokem and it really ate into the budget despite the help/discounts they offered. They are great people, but I agree that scanning is rather pricey. I've since been referred to Spectra Film and Video by several colleagues in LA, but I haven't been able to use them. You might reach out and see how it goes? Maybe others here can attest to their quality?

If you want 1080p telecine, you can probably find someone to do it for $250/hr. But "scanning" at 4k, you're looking at .48/ft as the lowest rate in town, which is a lot higher then Cinelab's process/scan deal.

Our overhead is allot lower, and we now offer 2K and 4K 35mm scans on Scan Station either to ProRes4444, DPX or both.
New Bedford, MA is allot less expensive than Sana Monica, we are also Solar Powered by a 250Kw array so there is that too.
