Les,

Pixelharvest is actually one of the companies I was looking into. I'll e-mail you for a sample. Thanks a lot.

Telecine Question

If you call your local (or closest metropolitan city) Kodak representative, they will be happy to answer your questions. With HD beginning to take up a portion of their film sales, they are begining to promote Digital Interface. Especially in the 16mm realm. I recently went to a Kodak seminar comparing costs of HD vs. 16mm. They had a panel of local filmmakers and industry technicians and the subject of DI came up. From what I learned just from their discussion you really need a holywood budget to scan at 2k. HD telecine is not terribly expensive and quality really depends on where it is done. All this I'm sure you know by now.
I live in San Francisco and the people at Monaco Labs are willing to talk your ear off. I suggest you google them and get their #. I'm sure they will explain anything you need to know. Another place in San Francisco I am familiar with is Retina. I hear that their telecine is one of the best. I've never dealt with them myself so I don't know how helpful they will be.

Welcome aboard DVInfo.net Martin!

I was under the impression that DI stands for Digital Intermediate
(in the film world) and not Digital Interface (?)....

Telecine Question

Rob-
Thank you for the welcome.
Your right, Digital Intermediate... not Digital Interface. Sorry

For the HD feature I shot recently, we did a cost comparison on HD origination vs Super16 and 35mm orientation, both with telecine to HD for DI (as in digital intermediate!) The final product is to be filmed out to 35mm so that was taken out of the equation.

For a $500,000 feature it was determined that the relative costs (from origination through delivery of editable footage on HD) was approximately $40K for HD, $60K for Super 16 and $75K for 35mm.

HD telecine is certainly cheaper than a 2K DI--but it's still pretty darn expensive!
