Neal and Mary, let me welcome you to our humble group.

I used to work right next to CBS in NYC, at Unitel on 57th street, and
I did some work on shoots, so I'm familiar with the video op's job,
and I don't think it's trivial by any means, though I guess with chip
cameras these days, it's not so hard to keep the cameras
matched...there are definitely similarities between a colorist's job
and a video op's (we called them video engineers, though that's kind
of a catchall).

We cover all aspects of color correction here, and telecine, so join
in and ask questions or what have you.  Let me know if you need any
help... you should have received a package of files to start you out.

To send messages to the whole group, send to
"telecine at xyzoom.alegria.com".
