Default feature film sound deliveries - unknown shortcuts

Dear postguys,

a world sales distributor asks for the following deliveries:

1 mix of the FILM in VO/VI 5.1 24 i/s + stereo
1 mix of the FILM in VO/VI 5.1 25 i/s + stereo
DVD session Protools VO- VI 5.1 + LTRT – 24 & 25 i/s

I can not translate these shortcuts:

VO/VI
i/s

Can you help me out quickly?

Thanks

Most likely "original version" (full mix) and "international version" (m&e). Looks like an italian or french distributor to me, they sometimes use VO/VI.

probably french speaking producer?

VO = Version Originale = Original mix
VI = Version Internationale = M&E or Mix minus Narration depending on program
i/s = images par seconde = frames per second

Greetings,

Thierry

And we're back to that debate about handing over Pro Tools sessions...

I have no problem handing protools sessions overif anybody requested them.
They would have to buy a UAD-2 quad card and a couple of thousands of dollars worth of UAD plugins, as well as a couple of other plugins I use that aren't standard.


It would be cheaper for them to hire me again.

This spec seems more like they want a PT session with the 5.1 stems and LtRt locked up together, rather than the entire PT session (which, as Mark points out, would be only moderately useful to them).

I agree. In my experience, when the studio spec a "Pro Tools Session" it's always just the various stems and printmasters in a Pro Tools session format, not my original mixing session.
In fact, nobody's ever asked me for the original mix session for any of the films I've done....at least nobody I'd consider a major player.

Well, for the most part handing over the mix is just a no no anyway.
Stems, sure.
Raw elements sure.

Import copy Final mix session sans plugins, routing and automation.

The mix session belongs to the studio technically. The raw elements and stems belong to the clients.
Though I know many a studio who has lost that argument.

I use the UAD2 for some plugins. I have a wide array of plugins I use outside of the standard as well as custom altiverbs that wouldn't go with the session either.

Its always cheaper to go back to the original to do a fix or remix.
Clients think its cheaper to go where it is cheaper until they realize the sessions don't work, sound the same and ultimately spend more money before they come back.

One of my most favorite phone calls ever is a client who decided to do it on the cheap and called the facility I was at, at the time, asking for someone to come to the other facility and help them figure out why the mix was different and if there were plugins that studio didn't have, if they could borrow them for the next few days.

Use your imagination on what that answer was.
