Film stocks in Tarkovsky's productions.
Posted 14 August 2006 - 07:12 AM
I have been looking for information regarding what kind of film stocks Tarkovsky used in his productions, but have not been able to find it out. If somebody know where to find this kind of technical information, I would be very grateful.
All the best.

Even with the difficulties importing Kodak films during the "cold war", they were desired and sought after by many filmmakers behind the "Iron Curtain".
---Polish films used to be shoton Eastmancolor ngative and printed on ORWO positive which gave them a muted, low-con look.
They had to use East German print film because of foreign currency restrictions.
There was a Hungarian Lenfilm co-production about Goya which was filmed in Leningrad on Eastmancolor which was processed in Hungary.
Many of them were filmed on Sovcolor negative film. Nostalghia was Eastman stock.
---'Nostalghia was an Italian co-production filmed in Italy.

They didnt like this stocks because occasionaly had troubles (like missing color layer in film)
as they said Kodak gave a guantee about that even in that time(!)
kalashnikov said "there was no big difference with color rendering between kodak and russian film stocks, sure kodak was better but I always got the results I want."
