    What software are you using? You need to compress it to mpeg-2 with AC3 audio. When you compress to mpeg-2 use A VBR bit rate, by doing that the program will figure out how to compress, the faster action will have less compression and the slower action like talking heads will have a lower bitrate. Generaly you don't want to go below 2 or above 8 with the average in between depending on video length, if you video is under 70 min you can use a CBR (constant bit rate) of 8.

    I would use a bit rate of 8 CBR (some programs list it as 8.000 or 8,000,000) and AC3 audio (dolby audio) but since its only 35 min you could use the uncompressed audio format of PCM. I prefer AC3 but its up to you. You mentioned that you have Premier but do you have authoring software? You will need it to author your dvd.

    The thing is every one will recomend the software they use, personly I like DVD Architect (Sony) but some like Encore (Adobe) I think this forum is pretty much split on the 2. DVDA has some great tools and features, I'm sure Encore dose as well but I have not really used it. Both programs have tons of books and dvd's on how to use them.
