Whats a better stock for sunset and sunrise scenes, outdoor or indoor? I know the color temp. is around 2,000K for sunrise and sunset so I guess since its closer to 32K the 56K it be better to use a indoor balanced stock.

Thanks

Ask yourself this before you go any further: Do you really want to try and match the color temp of sunrise/set? The beauty of them is that the light is colored and you would be recording it as neutral on film.

Sunrise/sunset can be shot with tungsten film without a filter. The color temperature changes continuously, so do your color correction in post rather than trying to chase it in the field. If you have artificial lighting keep in mind it will NOT be changing color temp, so your background/foreground color match will be changing by the minute.

Generally people want a sunset or sunrise to render warm on film, so they work with a 5500K balanced stock or filter a 3200K stock if they can. You can shoot on 3200K stock unfiltered and record a bluer sunset/sunrise and add the warmth back in later in post, but you won't have recorded much warmth on the negative that way.
