Boy oh Boy be careful of what you wish for!  As a former -I'm ahead of the
curve- "compressionist" for the other major post house in Atlanta all I can
say is give me telecine or give me death!  The compressionist is one of the
most tedious jobs anyone has ever devised.  I worked on both a beta version
system made by "big blue" and an alpha-ish version system made by Minerva. 
All I can say is that in the nine months I was involved I racked up over four
hundred hours of overtime - yes really -400.
