35mm considerations vs. 16mm
Posted 16 March 2006 - 04:05 PM
What considerations do I need to consider? How much can you get short ends for? We were planning on shooting somewhere around 3000' of 16mm, I guess somewhere around 7000' of 35mm. Anyone have any idea how much that might cost off the top of their head?
I was told processing is the same per foot, and then telecine wouldn't be any more than 16mm cause it will be the same amount of time.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Do factor in the cost of running some tests on any recans or short ends, to be sure there are no issues with fogging due to age, poor storage, or radiation.

But as mentioned, many times other factors have to be weighed in. Short ends on 35mm are more readily availble, the cameras are easier to get deals on, telecine is probably cheaper since you can go for older machines. To some extend one could perhaps also say that 35mm needs less light on certain occasions (the unlit NY city exteriors in Eternal Sunshine shot on 500D comes to mind - would probably have been unusably grainy in 16mm), and so on.
Not to mention the fact that your production will look better and have more production value. And that's worth something, too.
