Default Indie Films on BD?

What does an independent film-maker do if s/he has shot a 35mm film and wishes to release a BD version of it? Is BD currently in the exclusive realm of the major studios?

Are BD cameras, sound equipment and editing facilities still a long way off for shooting and editing directly on DB?

You don't want to shoot directly on BD, even though you can because the cost of the media is expensive. Most HD cameras (1080i/p) are tape based with some as HDD- or DVD-based. Once you capture your footage to your PC/Mac, you can edit from there to be burned using a BD burner drive.

There is a company that recently opened its BD facility. Click on here.They don't do telecine (which is what's needed to transfer 35mm to digital video files) but they may know a company that can do it for you.
