Ever worked with a project shot on film?

Please are still doing it!

If you have the opportunity to work on something shot on film, you’ll see that there’s some important workflow differences than projects shot digitally.

You’re probably not going to be scanning the film yourself, but you will be working with a file that has been scanned with all shots a part of the same file.

The resolution, color settings, and other items may need some work before you get started editing or grading.

  • DPX vs MOV scans
  • Cutting the scanned reel into smaller clips
  • Scene Cut detection
  • Color management
  • Anamorphic Desqueeze
