filming and color correction is made in video but as the final print is 35 positive does it make sens to film a color chart?

No, not really -- they will have look-up tables (LUT's) for that particular video format's conversion to 35mm, otherwise, it's standard video color-correction.

There may be some advantage of shooting a person with a color chart and using that for tests of the film-out before you start the color-correction and film-out of the whole piece, but some people just put together some clips of various shots for that purpose.

You record out to a 35mm negative or internegative and from that you make a one-light print.

I would recommend shooting a Kodak Plus gray chart, with the white and black edges visible and almost full frame. It helps to set up the digital grading more than the color charts.

Is is the best tool to get the general gamma right before any artistic color corrections.
