This comes under the category of "if it were such a good idea, everyone would already be doing it." In other words, you get what you pay for -- you won't be getting the quality of a $35,000 transfer for only $3,000.
In fact, CRT recorders are based on a similar idea, just not using a camera running at normal speed when pointing at a hi-res monitor.

My question is would it look BETTER - MUCH BETTER than the classic kinescope work done in the past? Like this :
1)Film miniDV black and white
2)import/edit on computer
3)export back to miniDV
4)play back on a high-resolution LCD monitor
5)film this with a Arri loaded with plus-x @ 29.97
6)devolpe film and rank to miniDV
7)edit on computer adding sound
8)burn 1,000 DVD's at home and then sell them online for $10

Sure, it would have to look better than a 1950's kinescope.
You'd be better off just shooting with a good 24P camera or just shooting b&w 16mm to begin with (or b&w Super-8 reversal).
Transferring DV to 16mm using a jury-rigged kinescope and then transferring it back to DV again seems to me would just get you really bad-quality DV -- fuzzy, grainy -- in the most expensive and complicated method possible.
You have to ask yourself what you are really trying to achieve, look-wise. It seems like this plan only makes sense for a really experimental look where you plan on making the image look funky. For example, I once transferred 24P SD to 35mm color reversal and cross-processed it for a unique look.

I think you're all wrong. I don't think any of you know what'll look like. I'm gonna go experiment. Up yours respectively.
Jeez, you ASKED for our opinion. You just didn't get an answer you wanted to hear.
Of course we don't know what the results would be of something that you haven't built yet!!! We can only make educated guesses based on past experiences with various methods of transferring video to film, or film to video, and with film-look processes, and with 24P video, with 16mm b&w, etc.
It sounds like you've already made up your mind that this is a good idea -- so just do it. Just stop asking people for their opinions if you don't want an honest response.

If I were going to do this, I'd probably try and get one of those hi-res monochrome medical monitors, some RGB dichroic filters and a stop-motion camera with very good registration. That way I might expect to get half-decent results, after say six months of fiddling around with it...

These men do know what they are talking about and are obviously more experienced than you.But if you want to waste money and time...go ahead.I'm sure it will look fantastic.
You just told a handful of pros and an award winning member of the ASC "Up yours" and that they don't know what they are talking about. Thats pretty smart buddy.Don't come crying for help here after your half baked mini-dv to film project goes sour.
I'm suprised people kept responding.
Nobody help this ignorant Jackass...let him learn his lesson the hard way.
If people try to help you ,you show respect for it.

Want a sophisticated kinescope for a fair price? Call Dennis O'Rourke here:
He's got 2; one with a mechanical advance, another with an air-jet advance. If you don't come and get it he may throw it away, so hurry.

You see why it's important that people sign their posts with their real names? People who use pseudonyms often feel empowered to be rude because there's no consequences.
Consequences? You going to hunt him down and beat his ass? Can I shoot it? ahh, I can see it now, I'd get a techno crane for this. It would be awesome.
Yes, I do see the significance of what you speak of.
