Reccomendations on film stocks
Posted 30 July 2006 - 12:35 PM
I am starting production soon on a short film about a young brother and sister that go out to the desert to find their father. The director and I both thought it would be interesting if we gave it that George Washington feel (DP Tim Orr, Dir. David Gordon Green). The look has a kind of sepia nostalgia feel to it, which I read on the forum he achieved through antique suede filters. Do you have any advice on shooting in this style-especially the level of filter to use(i.e. 1,2, or 3)? Is that type of coloring something that can completely be done in post?
Also, The director is getting a bulk deal on Kodak stock so and I think we are shooting 7218 (for the poppier colors) but I was thinking it would be better to shoot on something a little slower for the day exteriors out in the desert that could give some more saturation (50D maybe?)
Any advice and tips you guys might have for shooting in the desert would be great also.
Thanks in advance.
