Thanks again for the comments. I appreciate it. Stil, We try to keep the costs as low as possible so we shoot more often. The Car shoot amounted to about $120 for gas for the tow truck and other drivers (the flipped car was driven to set) and de-greaser to clean up car fluids off the road. We also had to purchase some food (which is usually the only cost).

Crew of about 5-8 people besides myself, Brian and the director. (Plus cast)

We actually just got the 16mm back that we shot from this shoot but I don't think it serves as a good comparison because there are a lot of variables in the film workflow. Whether it was in the shooting, handling, scanning, or delayed processing the film actually doesn't look as nice as the final HD footage. Once I get a chance to try and grade it I'll post a real comparison. But again there were some problems with the film that have a big impact. The next comparison test will be more scientific.

The comment on the film issue strikes a chord after viewing the focus puller interviews over at FreshDV. The discussion touched on the topic of what happens when a mistake is made on film, particularly if a reshoot the next day is required. Shooting in HD, where you can review the footage immediately, certainly resolves the uncertainty.
