... I've an upcoming short film to be shot on super 16mm with a view to a later 35mm blow up for projection and am interested to hear from people who've done the same. The film is entirely exteriors with (hopefully) a sun-drenched feel. To keep the grain down I'll use a slower stock and will probably overexpose about 1/2 a stop. I've read various comments from dp's, with differing views, in various places concerning using 16 or 35mm primes. Are the 16mm primes actually sharper because they're designed to focus light onto the 16mm frame specifically and if I used 35mm primes is their sweet spot too close to the edge of the 16mm frame as they're designed for the 35mm neg frame?!
I'll probably shoot on an Arri SR3.
If anybody has any advice on how to best get the results with the blow up in mind I'd appreciate it...
