Although that picture will almost certainly make a trip through DI, the 
OCN is indeed in the hands of a neg cutter, and I can attest that there 
are pieces of shots taken away to live in a reel of assembled neg 
somewhere.  Perhaps it's one of those partial DI jobs, or maybe it's 
studio policy to create a neg assembly for the vault.

Nevertheless, the quaint image of a white-gloved neg cutter hunched 
over a synchronizer on a clean table is not yet a thing of the past.  I 
love the smell of film cement in the morning.
