Pix monitors on a film set

  OFFICE MEMO         Pix monitors on a film set            Date:  6/7/95

Here's a difficult one.  If a Video Monitor is part of the set during a film
shoot and that monitor is displaying normal 60 field NTSC video and the film
camera is recording 24 fps there is a very objectionable Shutter Bar recorded
in the filmed image of the Video monitor.  I suppose if the shoot used PAL
equipment for the video display and the film camera were set to 25 fps this
would be minimized but what do you do when the client then wants to transfer
his material in NTSC at 25 (24.98) fps with a PAL time code striped DAT as the
Sync Sound and they want to create Flex Files for AVID also in NTSC?  Send
those clients back to Production 101?  Any creative ideas on this?
Just another average day around here.
