The last part of the Standard Films series opens with some select Kevin Jones moments, like the first-ever frontside 1080 in the backcountry. From there, Mike Hatchett discusses the $100 per three-minute money-burning monster that is shooting 16mm film. Production costs begin to mount when you shoot four rolls a day--so that's $400 per day. Which is potentially $12,000 a month, and more than likely around $80,000 a season.
Even though they are on their 20th production, Standard is still striving to make the perfect film. Dave Hatchett, Lonnie Kauk, and Mathieu Crepel all talk about what ingredients should go into making the best film possible. Mike Hatchett admits that it took him 10 years to stop worrying if they will have enough money to make a movie.
Then it's back to where we started: Red Rocks, Colorado, at the TB20 world premiere where Kevin Jones and Dave Downing give their expectations for TB20. Jeremy Jones closes with the ultimate question: “Will there be a TB30?”
