I actually agree, what you were getting was my initial shock. I see good
and bad sides. Like I said, the specialty processing will continue in the
spirit of Forde, and the price negotiation of Alpha will continue. Quality
is another issue. What I hope to do is have a conversation with Rich to
express some of my concerns as well as what I know many others have
experienced with Alpha Cine.
I am glad Rich, Matt and Heather will continue to have work, but I only
hope the quality of work Forde has managed to do will continue at Alpha
