How do you pronounce "Telecine"?

I say "tele-seen". But I've heard it ponounced "tele-sin-uh" or "tele-sin-ee". Both of the latter prononciations make the word sound incredibly stupid, but for some reason I bet they are more likely to be correct than my version. I wish they could have come up with a better word. Who thinks of these things?

I think it's "TELL-ah-sin"...kinda like a Catholic confessional. But I'm sure that "TELL-ah-sin-ah" and probably others are also used. <shrug>

I agree that we should have a page around here with the correct pronounciations and definitions of these words.

I think the "tele-sin-ee" is the correct one. Not 100% sure though.
But I think most people will understand what you mean anyway.

Tella-sinny

I first watched this argument crop up in the USENET newsgroups years ago.

Back then the experts agreed it was "tella-sinny."

I've since lived in Hollywood for a few years and confirmed it was so.

So it is written, so it shall be done.

Tele- sinny is the correct pronounciation. When I was 19 I had the joys of working on the telecine department of a commercial TV station in Brisbane. The name telecine should have been changed to the crappiest job on the planet.

All I did for my 12 hour day was insert commercial carts into a big ole machine and program the playback timings. The only good thing was we had a patch bay for the satelite and got to watch Baywatch(without the sound of course) to halp pass the time.

Oh, so BayWatch wasn't just popular only in Germany. That's good to hear.

What's unusual is for *any* word in Brisboyne (or any other Aussie village for that matter), to sound anything like what it sounds like here in the States. And then it's unusual for any word here in the States to sound the same way in Hollywood, dah-ling.

But I've always known it to be "tele-sinny."

Now where it gets wierd are some little Texas towns (unlike metro areas in Oz, these can get pretty strange)...

Buda ( B-yu-da )

Refugio ( re-furr-io )

Llano ( yano )

Humble ( umble )

Del Valle ( del val-yay )

Oh wait, I've drifted off topic...

I don't know, you Americans, always screwing up Australian. It's Brisbaaaayyyynnneee. Not what I would have expected from a Trival Pusuit Silver Screen Edition Champ

My mistake, you're quite right, at the end of "Koala Sprint" on the Oil's second album Head Injuries, you can clearly hear Garrett asking "where's Brisbaaaayyyynnneee" right before Martin's Stratocaster lead-out.

We get that way over here thanks to television and movies, didn't ya know?

<<The name telecine should have been changed to the crappiest job on the planet..>>

Ironically, when used to refer to the high end process of film to tape transfer, the guys 'n gals who operate the telecine (colorists) can make an tremendous amount of money. When a room costs the client $1200/hr during the day shift and the colorist takes home maybe a quarter of that...not so crappy, huh!

Charles,

I guess Telecine wasn't quite the correct term for the job I did. It came from the fact that we transfer things to tape there, be it from another tape, or the satelite. We also played movies back that were on film. Using a machine that must have been on the ark.

That's where the "telecine" part comes in, I'm pretty sure. I seem to recall a term like "film chain" to refer to that setup also.

I sort of like the idea of old Noah showing movies to the animals on the open seas--all the while making bootleg video copies in the booth...sort of gives a new meaning to the phrase "video pirate"...

I seem to remember that was the term. The film reels were 16mm I think and we used it for all the old TV programs from the 60's, like Bewitched, I Dream of Genie etc. It had a beautiful look but we were constantly blowing dust from the gate.

I vote for "tell-ah-SEE-nee". I worked at a TV station for 20 years, and at least that's what we called it.

The telecine equipment was finally removed about 3 years ago. no more film projectors anywhere in the station. No more squirting the pads with "pic-clear" to get rid of the hairs and fuzzys.

...a funny memory...about 15 years ago we were airing a movie from film (3 seperate reels)...and when the last reel was started, it was in Spanish! Ha! lot's of calls on that one.
