Im shooting a music video in a couple weeks. the director and I have been talking about a "look." we love the movie birth and hearing about savides underexposing two stops and pulling two stops (!!!) was a bit alarming. looking for a low contrast softness (which we'll control with lighting) that is a bit murky and washed-out. We dont have the budget to shoot tests. The best I can do is shoot some 35mm stills.
Were shooting on 79. Anybody have some experience with this?
Thanks!
by the way, been reading for a couple years, this is my first post.

As I mentioned in responding to your cross-posting, the results with Pull-2 may be unpredictable, as the film is far from being processed "to completion", and the faster machine speed used may give too short a time in the "tail end" solutions like the bleach, fix, and washes. For 5279, consider Pull-1 and maybe a contrast reduction filter. Underexposure will reduce shadow detail and lower the density of the black areas in the print or transfer.

Underexposure tends to make the grain more visible.
