Hi, i'm new to this site so please forgive if I post incorrectly.

I am about to shoot titles for a film i'm working on...i just got the kodaliths back which look wonderful...but my question is what kind of film would you recommend I shoot them on. The rest of the film was shot on 7246 and I plan to conform it myself and pull the print myself. If I shoot them with 7363 will it end up looking strange when I pull the print? should I just stick to a color film?

Thanks, Paula S.

Hi,

Are you goung to just show the titles as they are? or are you using an optical priter to composite?

If you are just shooting the titles as they are, use the 7246. You only need to shoot on a Hi-Con film if your adding the titles over existing processed film with an optical printer.

Just shoot on the same stock or any similar standard negative film stock. No point in using the specialty stock. I used to shoot Kodaliths all the time for the student films I DPed and we'd always try to use short ends from the other shoots.

If you are using an Oxberry or other single-frame contollable rig, try to leave 4-6 black frames between credits as they can seem abrupt otherwise. I always tried to shoot a series of credits as a single shot in order to save negative cutting and handles.

there will be a lot of optical printing involved, but for this particular set of titles, it's just going to be as is.

thanks!

Hi,

Then just use the normal film, Hi contrast titles for optical printing should really be on 35mm!
