UK Cinema FPS

I'm shooting a low budget commercial on a 1D MK IV to be screened digitally in local cinemas. Can I just check the correct frame rate would be 23.976fps.

 

Also would anyone know the correct picture ratios for cinema projection?

I think you will find the rate is 25 fps in Europe. 16:9 would be normal.

Sure, absolutely, you can shoot at any rate you like (actually I've often recommended people shoot 25, and they always looked at me like I had two heads - then spent a lot of effort solving sync problems)

 

But I'm not sure that anyone anywhere exhibits anything other than 25.

As far as I was aware, theatrical exhibition is always 24fps, worldwide.

P

 

Film projection is 24fps, but does the same hold true for Digital?

 

Actually, I've just checked the DCI specs, digital projection frame rates, and it is indeed 24fps.

I'm still shooting on that Mitchell 297 by the way. She's still going strong.

 

So where is the old SVC moco rig? about 3 years ago I looked through the door & nobody was around, it's been a Starbucks @ 142 Wardour Street for a couple of years!
