[Asmund Voll Tesdal] "Just one thought; how does the cost of extra time spent grading less-than-ideal footage compare to the savings of renting cheaper cams?"


It depends your final deliverable. "Crash," of course, went to a film print. The overwhelming majority of microbudget movies are lucky to get an audience, much less a film print.

I'm repeating myself, but here's the answer for a DI: At the price ranges from .55 per frame to $1.20/frame. at 24fps
24*60*120=172,800 frames * .55 = $95,000 and at $1.20 = $207,000.

And transferring video to film costs about $3000/minute. 120 minutes * 3000= $360,000.

Question is, with half a million dollars in services on the table, is it possible to get a reasonable discount?

I think we call that question "a grinder"?
So there you go!
