Mixing 35mm and super 16
Posted 25 September 2006 - 12:40 PM
I recently shot a short film on 35mm (1.85) and need to go back and do some re-takes and additional shooting. Because we went over budget, I am now having to consider shooting some suepr 16 and integrating it into the short a la CITY OF GOD, or THE CONSTANT GARDNER, both of which mixed both formats together, I believe.
We didn't shoot super35, however, the way CONSTANT GARDNER did. Anything I should before I go down this road? Obviously, we will only be finishing to DVD, and I don't need to strike a release print, so I'm not worried on that account. Mostly, I'm just wondering how I merge the 1.85 ratio with the 1.66 ration of super 16.
Thanks in advance for any advice...

You can ask for a 1.85 groundglass for the S16 camera, if you shoot a framing chart, getting the transfer in the correct aspect ratio will be a piece of cake.
