Music Video for TV...Need help fast

Hey guys...

I just shot a music video at 24 fps on a Panasonic GH2. It will be released to various TV stations and I was wondering if I need to convert it to 29.97 fps? If so, do you just add 2-3 pulldown? I am worried about the audio getting out of sync. Does 2-3 pulldown keep the audio in sync with the video as well?

Ask the TV stations. Most should be set up to handle 24P, if not, they'll tell you.

In any decent editor, start an NTSC preset, it should bring in your 24P footage and do its thing automatically with no sync issues.
