Just bought Clerks after hearing good things.

I like it so far (im in the middle of it now). So I noticed its very grainy. What I figure and my guess is it was shot on 16mm and blown up 35mm. Am I right? Or was it 8mm. The quality is nothing spectacular and it was only shot in 1994. I know how low budget it was.

Thanks

It was shot with an Arriflex 16 SR2 and of course 16mm film.

I figured. But it still seems a bit grainy for 16mm.

I guess he wasnt the best cinematographer.

Thanks for your help.

It was shot on 16mm Double-X negative. The budget was about $27,000 initially, I recall, maybe more.
