Hello,

I am shooting with an A-minima next week, I am planning to use 2 different fuji stocks for a particular aesthetic of the piece. Is it possible to wind my own rolls onto empty 200ft Kodak cores from Fuji 400' rolls? If so what are the specific requirements?


Any help will be of great assistance.

Since 200-foot A-Minima loads are available for a wide variety of Kodak films like 7201, 7212, 7217, 7205, 7218, 7229, 7274, 7279, 7231 and 7266, what "aesthetic" are you looking for that the Kodak stocks cannot emulate, especially since you will likely have some flexibility in telecine or scanning?

When "rolling your own", you need to pay close attention to orientation of the film. Static and handling marks can occur if you are not careful, and winding and rewinding an even roll with uniform tension in total darkness can be a challenge.
