A 35mm Print of a Feature Film can cost anywhere from $2000-20,000, the workflow to create restored internegatives can cost many times that.

Irreplaceable Prints

  • IB Technicolor
  • Timed answer prints from the original camera negative
  • Reversal prints (stock no longer manufactured, 16mm only)
  • Prints with magnetic soundtracks
  • Discontinued stocks such as Kodak 2393, Fuji, Orwocolor
  • Prints with no protection elements. There may not be a financial incentive for a studio to strike a new print if one is damaged or destroyed.

Only a handful of labs left in the world printing and processing motion picture film. Only one lab in the US doing laser subtitles
