Dear film makers.
Whether a beginner or a skilled cameraman, unloading your 1st or 100th film you really should consider developing your own film in a home made lab. The standard processing of a film in a commercial film lab does not give you the opportunity to maximise the potential of your film.
Experimenting with the standard procedures of processing of a film or using special procedures can help you achieve special expressive effects, which would not be duplicted in a commercial lab. Only individual, manual processing of a film allows you to realise the full to use potential of a film.
