16mm film, an inside look

I'm a film geek. Never went to school for it, so perhaps that explains my wide-eyed wonder with every new thing I discover.

Here's a (shortened) videoconference (with voiceover added later) I was able to capture off my computer screen during a film transfer:

I've always taken what they've given me without sitting in and instruction. It's a sellable look.

If you've sat in on a transfer session before, perhaps you can give me some tips on some of the requests I can make to make the footage look even better!

thank ya,
jones

Hey Jones....this looks really good. The depth of color is quite good. I'm looking at doing the virtual sit in with a colorist with the company you had do this work. Makes a huge difference to push the negative as you pointed out. I've got some Super 8 coming back from Spectra...kind of anxious to see. You got me wanting a 16 now!

It was fun, but I'm not sure that I'm going to do it again until I know more about the process - maybe sit-in on some other people sitting in, just to learn the terminology and what is possible.

Besides, Spectra's 'house' look that they give me without my input is more than good enough for me!
