  3. PROFESSIONAL CINEMATOGRAPHY MASTERS COURSE WHO IT IS FOR The Masters course in Professional Cinematography of the Laba and the Movie and Sound Firenze srl (www.movieandsound.it) is a top level artistic training for graduated from related subjects. WHERE Classes are held at the LABA of Florence in Piazza Badia a Ripoli 1/a-. The practical and theoretical practices are held at the studios and Motion Picture Laboratory of the film production center of Florence, Movie and Sound Firenze srl . N.10, Fornaccio way, - Loc. Vallina, Bagno a Ripoli - Florence GOALS The aim of the course is the preparation of a technical-professional figure able to provide the author the different expressive possibilities that cinema allows. The master will be built entirely around the stages of film production using the film medium as prevalent. Will highlight the difference between digital media and otherwise. Students study the Workflow of a film production and post-production and the use of Digital Intermediate. We discuss the sensitive materials and their constitution, explaining what happens by exposing a film, the action of the exposed emulsion and development. PROGRAMME The program is divided into two phases. The first is devoted to intensive hands-on instruction demonstration, practical trainings of all the technical aspects of filmmaking, cinematography, camera operations, directing, sound recording, editing and film producing. The second phase of the program is the production period during which every student writes and directs his or her own film in 35mm. Students are separated in groups and each group becomes a rotation crew for each of the projects. In this way a student not only has a show reel but also works in crew positions on his or her colleagues film and gains invaluable experience rotating in the the principal production positions as writer, director, producer, director of photography, assistant camera, gaffer, sound recorder or editor. At the end of course the final films are celebrated in a screening open to cast, crew, friends and family. All students who successfully complete the master receive a copy of his or her final film in 35mm. for more information and the complete programm please check: www.laba.biz or write to info@movieandsound.it

  9. In our lab every day before starting to develop we do all bath tests and PH test, we use kodak sensitometric pre exposed control strips for Kodak films and the Fuji pre-exposed control stips for Fuji films, to check our solutions, then if every thing is ok we do a test with the negative we have to develop, we cut a 10cm piece from the roll and we do a sensitometric test with Kodak sensitometer we have and we develop it, we have a ref for every tipe of negative (kodak, Fuji, ORWO,...) and we can check if the neg is ok or not, if it's ok we develop it if not we contact the client before developping. as the program of Image care of Kodak every lab has to do these tests. Michelle
  10. Hi, i don't know about the negative and processing costs in US but our lab in Italy has a agreement with Kodak to give good prices for negative, processing and telecine to encourage filmmakers to shoot in film and not degital, our price for negative Kodak 5260 + processing and telecine is 1,45€ per meter (for shooting 1 hour you need 1700 meter of negative), in Italy this is a very good price, i'm not sure about L.A. you can check our lab: www.movieandsound.it regards Michelle

  14. Hi Eugene, If you use neg 200T and you have the correct exposure it won't be very grainy but if you underexpose it and you want to correct it in telecine you will see all the grain specially in darker zone, for processing and telecine you can try Movie and Sound in Italy, the price is 21,50 euro for processing and telecine in DVD or MiniDV, they do color correction too with Davinci and they post you where you want, they sell also all S8mm films. if you don't want to see the grain you can ask the lab to use digital noise reducer. regards Michelle
