Male: What does digitizing mean?
Matt: Turning it to that it goes from 24 frames to 29.97 for video and making it so we can embed it on a computer.
Male: Where are we Matt?
Matt: We are in Seattle. We are in Alpha Cine. This is where we are going to get things telescene.
Male: What time is it Matt?
Matt: It is too early, that is what it says on my watch.
Male: For the length of the production, all I can say is that I was scared simply put because I am sure that everyone is with their first film, because we are working with film and it is so fragile, I was so happy to see the final product.
Matt: Here we are in the Tele Cine room. I do not know what you call this room.
Male: Yes, that is good enough. This is the machine room here.
Matt: The machine room okay. When we went up to Seattle, that one day to get a telescene and for those of you who do not know what telescening is, it is the process of turning the film into digital and it is actually the first time where I actually got to see the footage. And the footage just turned out great.
Male: There are different kinds of machines. This basically has a light source and then it is what your CCD picks up and round and round and comes up the other end.
Matt: Pure ecstatic joy, I mean to see your hard work as a physical entity on the screen. It is just something that you can just sit back and just feel like that is mine up there like I worked on that. That is our baby. It is something that can never be reproduced. Nothing can ever reproduce it.
