Hi again,
     As Martin said, we have to shoehorn the contrast range of film into the
video world.  Telecine dailies will never be fim dailies on any tier of
     A one light will show you all the warts as best as the medium is
capable, but I wouldn't want to base my edit decisions on such a transfer!
Many a time I've seen shots that were perfectly salvageable not used in a
final cut because they looked bad on the dailies.
     There has to be some give and take!  The best course, as ever, is for
the DP to _communicate_ with the colorist.  The more we know what you want,
the more likely you are to get it.  Sometimes just a chat after the transfer
can fill in a lot of blanks, too.
