PSA: Export for Parklane Screening Info

DO NOT EXPORT YOUR FILM WITH COLOUR BARS OR 2-POP.  Exports need to be playlist ready - export *just* your sequence without cruft.  If you have a 1Khz tone at the start of your film I will delete it from the playlist.

All files should be put on the ParkLane labeled hard drive that I left in A107.  If it's not on that drive Monday morning, it won't be test screened.
