PJ20 source elements consisted of VHS,Umatic,S8,16mm,35mm and digital files. Our Quantel iQ was the perfect platform to assemble theses disparate elements for the conform and colorgrade. One of the challenges finishing the film was getting availability with the director to come to Seattle for final approval of the colorgrade, type and graphic treatments. The solution was to archive out the project from our iQ and bring it down to one of the iQ systems at Fotokem in Hollywood. The adjustments were made with the director and the project was brought back to Seattle for the final deliverables. Final delivery will be 35mm print, HDCamSR 23.98 and 29.97, PAL and NTSC digibeta.
