Hi Gene,

There are quite a few, as a lot of tv is still shot on 16mm (Super 16 to be precise), so most post houses in town can handle it.

Do you want to end up with a tape, like HDCam Sr or D5, or do you want a hard drive, or ...?

I recently worked with Modern VideoFilm for the first time, on the Criterion transfers for the next Brakhage set, and they did excellent work. I think Marilyn could also testify to the quality of their results. I know Criterion uses them just about exclusively when they transfer film in L.A., and I get the impression they're able to negotiate on price for smaller, independent projects.

We've also used a place right across the street from the archive for years now called The Post Group. They normally handle newly shot color negative for tv shows, but were able to do some nice transfers of 1950s Kodachrome for us a year or so ago.

Hope this helps,

Mark T
