I want to make my first shooting. So I have some questions.
First - what I have for my project:
For shooting: Pentaflex16 camera, 3 standard lenses plus 2 zoom lenses, 3 engines (fixed 25 fps with plug for wall outlet, 16/24/25/32 for 12V, and fixed 96 fps for 12V).
For lightning: Two 500 W halogen lamps.
For post production and color correction: Discreet Flame 9.5
First thing I want to shoot is a slow motion with this 96 fps engine. Pentaflex has 180 - 0 fully adjustable shutter so all I know now is that I need a proper light meter that will help me select proper stop on the lens, jeez I have never done it before ;-), so excuse me any dumb stuff that I write here.
First question: what lightmeter should I buy? (I would prefer some used stuff due to limited budget)
Second question: what color stock should I use? (I want to shot falling orange on blue/green screen. Halogen lamps that I have gives very warm yellowish light. I can do color correction on my system)
Third question: After developing process I want to scan my shooting on ArriScan into 16bit dpx files. Do I have to make a positive film for that or ArriScan can scan negatives and then reverse them?
well, for beginning thats all of my doubts, please help me ;-)
