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.
