Location scouts begin today. Looking forward to this project, though the 24P thing has really become a pain in the rear. It has so many variables, simplicity is a thing of the past. Camera will be working with the new Sony 5000 machine on location this time, I'll be feeding digital right to the machine. They wanted me to run the machine but I turned that down. The only drawback is that they will probaly use that track, even though they say they wont. I'll do my deal, and see what happens.
My workflow will be: DEVA master (24 bit), DAT backup (16 bit), AES through the DAT to 5000 - channels 1 & 2. I am treating the DAT and the 5000 as backup. Sync will be from the DEVA via Lockits on all devices. DEVA and DAT will be 29.97, cross jamming Lockits to 23.97.
