Hi Justin,

I suppose every company has its own way of doing things.
The company that I work for, Olympusat, Inc., has a very different business model than most.

Olympusat is a vertical media company.
We own or co-own all our film catalogs, the scanner, restoration, color, including all the cable channels that they appear on.

In West Palm Beach, where our company is headquartered, I have more than a dozen members on my team, including restoration artists, audio specialists, colorists, and a conform artist. We also have a Mexico City division, which includes many more restoration artists, and scanning and telecine operators. 

In as much as I am Senior Colorist and Manager of Film Restoration Services, I am not deeply involved in the business side of things.
But I believe our costs to clients is calculated per frame.

Our client services include: scanning, restoration, color, and that’s in addition to full HD to 6K production and post production facilities.
The owner of the company, in my opinion, is a visionary - who’s only edict to me when he hired me nearly 4 years ago was, “I only ever want to do it right.”
We have, and we do.

Hope this answers some of your questions.

Best, Jim
