What grain? I just pushed 29 two stops and exposed it at 400 asa and couldn't see any grain at all. Given i went to tape, I shoot a TV show, but I couldn't believe how easy it was for the colorist to bring detail back. As long as your ratios are right you will be fine. Push 2, have fun. That stock will let you do anything to it. I miss 93 and 48 already.
Well, that's because you never underexposed the stock -- 500T stock rated at 400 ASA with a two-stop push gives you two and one-third stops excess density.
He's talking about underexposing and pushing in order to shoot in lower light levels, which will increase the grain over normal or overexposure. Since 5229 is slightly grainier than 5218, it's also grainier when underexposed and push-processed, although not radically so compared to 5218.

If you can, do some test with and without push-process to see the grain (and lab's work)
your final product is a video so don't worry about 29's grain, is fine enought.
I used to shoot by night with a super speed lens T:1.3 and 29 :this is recreate what I see.
