You mean to get color accuracy for the transfer onto the final transparency that gets sent to theaters (kind of like the reverse of profiling a scanner+film combo)? Hollywood shoots negative for its latitude... I thought it was interneg all the way until the final print, which I'd assume is on transparency (transferred by a film recorder).
I don't recall all the details, but it was something like creating a lookup to map from density to CIE/spectral values for converting to/from something like Cineon format, which is based on density. It may have been positive or negative film or both. Graeme Gill.
