Hey anyone knows this info or can point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it.

I would like to know what features (theatrically released films) released in probably the last ten years, were shot on S16, and also if possible what stock(s) they used.

I'm sure this has been discussed before, so check the archives for more info.

But off the top of my head, "Thirteen," "Never Die Alone," and "Monsoon Wedding" come to mind.

Mike Figgis' "Leaving Las Vegas" is one that's often cited.

The Station Agent is the best S16 film I have ever seen. B)

The Squid and the Whale is a recent one that I thought looked pretty good. There's an icg article in the October 2005 issue about it, I believe it was a blowup and not a DI.

Another recent one is The Devil's Rejects, which I believe was a DI.

Not sure what stocks were used though.

John Sayles' "Silver City" was shot Super 16 by Haskell Wexler (at age 81). The "making of" documentary shows both an A-Minima and a full-on XT-Prod (or whatever they're calling them) being used. I watched the DVD this weekend, and my overall impression was of great sharpness, but too much contrast (not enough fill). It looked to me like they relied on existing lighting on a lot of Colorado outdoor locations, and the light was pretty harsh.

"The Station Agent" is a good example of a Super 16 film - to the casual observer, it simply looks like a well shot film.

I just saw the film "Nine Lives" in the theater -- which was great, by the way -- and I'm sure it was shot on Super 16mm. I don't know what stock for sure, but I would guess 7218.

Hustle and Flow (Sundance 2005 cinematography winner) and March of the Penguins were the best S16 films that I've seen this year!

---IMDB.com is not the most reliable source, but here's there list:

http://imdb.com/Sear...al?PCS:Super 16

'Never Die Alone' and 'Wonderland' were blown up to 2.35/1. SuperScope 16 one might call it.

'The Constant Garndener' was a mixture of S16 and S35.

Super-16 is an excellent cost-saving choice when HD television and DVD release are definite, and a 35mm print release could happen after additional funding for the DI and 35mm film-out is in hand:

For lowest graininess, shoot with the lowest speed film the light allows, use the latest stocks (like Kodak VISION2 Color Negative Film) and avoid underexposure.
