Dear Mike,
with respect, the solution I suggested totally eradicates the tale slate
Is it 'grandstanding' to suggest a technology that prevents all this
expensive, time consuming, and very old fashioned tail slate procedure?

Clearly what Phil's  'very time consuming and cumbersome' telecine syncing
problems would be totally solved if he could get his customers shooting
timecode on film.
