    Ditto on that. These days, even 35mm is not out of reach, if you are as lucky. I went straight to 35, never shot a single roll of 8 or 16 mm

    I think reelgood tends to have 6 to 12 month old unopened cans of 35 for 250-350 per 1000' roll IIRC. Though you do have to email/call them since they arnt a modern shop or anything. no affiliation btw http://reelgoodfilm.com/ great deal, especially if you're shooting 2 perf

    Thank you for the resources! Anyone have any scanning facilities to recommend? I've done some research, but nothing can beat people's experiences.

    Cinelab (http://cinelab.com/) and video film solutions (http://www.videofilmsolutions.com/) seem to be good bets for cost. One of my pals swears by Cinelab's soup as the best next to fotokem, and another DP I frequently work with has always had great results from VFS. As long as you mark your boxes as unexposed film and talk to the shippers to make sure it wont go thru x-ray, you should be fine. Hell USPS flat rate boxes have been known to work just fine.

    Fotokem will give you spectacular results, but they are the big hollywood lab with a big hollywood building to pay for so they arnt the cheapest. The Kodak lab in NYC is supposedly technically open, and they now own the big Atlanta lab too.

    Pipeline wise, depending on your budget and if you know how to work with color systems like davinci, you may want to get your film done as a flat pass 1080 telecine initially (or if you dont want to color yourself, you can have them do a "best light" color correction on the fly). 2k scans will give you much more range to play with, but they are a bit more expensive. 4k is... more expensive lol. Both cinelab and VFS post rate cards online, though you'd want to talk to them ahead of time to get a more specific quote to your needs.

    Why do you need scanning services?
