MATERIALS REQUIRED FOR A WORKPRINT CUT

THE CUT WORKPRINT with dissolves, fades, supers, intentional splices, and unintentional splices clearly marked. The cut workprint should exactly match the finished show. All material should appear as it is to appear in the finished show, including titles, credits, fades, dissolves, opticals and digital effects, with key numbers corresponding exactly to the negative that is to be cut, and exactly to the key number list.

A KEY NUMBER LIST that shows the cut number, the beginning and ending footage and frame of every shot (Picture Start = 0000+00), the first and last key number of every shot, and the location and length of each dissolve and fade. All information must be easily read, in straight, non-overlapping columns, with enough space between columns and lines to make them easily read, and with a font no smaller than 10-point. Neat hand printing is acceptable. These must be delivered in a hard copy form, although it could be helpful to have them on disk or via e-mail in addition to the hard copy.

MATERIALS REQUIRED FOR A 24 FPS VIDEO EDIT

VHS TAPE OF NON-LINEAR OUTPUT with easily discerned images, and a key number window which has fourteen easily read figures (eg: KL98 0345 3645 +12). This must be on a fresh tape, not one previously used, of good quality. Each reel can be on a separate tape, or all reels can be on one tape with an academy countdown preceding every reel. The video should exactly match the finished show. All material should appear exactly as it is to appear in the finished show, including titles, credits, fades, dissolves, opticals and digital effects, with key numbers corresponding exactly to the negative that is to be cut, and exactly to the edit lists.

THE FOLLOWING EDIT LISTS FOR EACH REEL, with all information easily read, in straight, non-overlapping columns, with enough space between columns and lines to make them easily read, and with a font no smaller than 10-point. These must be delivered in a hard copy form, although it could be helpful to have them on disk or via e-mail in addition to the hard copy.

MATERIALS REQUIRED FOR A 30 FPS VIDEO EDIT

VHS TAPE OF NON-LINEAR OUTPUT with easily discerned images, and a key number window which has fourteen easily read figures (eg: KL98 0345 3645 +12). This must be on a fresh tape, not one previously used, of good quality. Each reel can be on a separate tape, or all reels can be on one tape with an academy countdown preceding every reel. The video should exactly match the finished show. All material should appear exactly as it is to appear in the finished show, including titles, credits, fades, dissolves, opticals and digital effects, with key numbers corresponding within 2 film frames to the negative that is to be cut, and exactly to the edit lists.

A KEY NUMBER LIST that shows the cut number, and the first and last key number of every shot. This would normally have to be generated by hand from the video. Neat hand printing is acceptable. All information must be easily read, in straight, non-overlapping columns, with enough space between columns and lines to make them easily read, and with a font no smaller than 10-point. These must be delivered in a hard copy form, although it could be helpful to have them on disk or via e-mail in addition to the hard copy.

ALL PROJECTS ALSO REQUIRE THE FOLLOWING:

ALL OF THE NEGATIVE TO BE CUT, accurately identified on each can or box as to camera roll and lab roll number, production title, and producer. The negative must have easily read key numbers--not obscured in any way by, for example, fogging, manufacturing problems, or Aaton˘ Code. Each camera roll must be accompanied by a camera report. If any material has been removed from the negative it must be identified in a separate log.

ANY SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS must be in writing.

CHANGES must be accompanied by corresponding VHS tape, edit lists, and negative as above. If these requirements are not met additional charges could be incurred. The customer is responsible for delivering or arranging the delivery of all materials to us, and for tracking all materials before the materials enter into our possession and after they leave our possession.
