The best camera and film for me?
Posted 26 September 2006 - 02:55 PM
We are looking for a particular look in our footage that we take. We want the end product to look on a TV as if we were watching and old movie. We want a gainy, sort of vintage look but the final product to be a dvd. The best example I can show you of what I'm looking for is at this website: www.fiftyfootfilms.com under their screening room and honeymoon pack there is a video of what we want.
I have the resources to do the post production work myself so I would rather do it myself, however I have never used a super 8 camera and know little about what camera and film would be the best for the trip.

Congratulations, and hope it all goes well.
P.S It really matters about the amount of light in the church, PM this guy he's a fairly famous cinematographer, he'll know what to do.
EDIT : That is probably Kodachrome 40, I'm not sure.

If you are skidish about using ancient stock, ektachrome 64t is not a bad looking stock either. I personally dont see where is looks all that much different than K40 shot well. It honestly may be a bit grainier which may be good for the look you want. I think I too would avoid color negative in your instance since it turns out looking really smooth most of the time. Not to say the others cant be as smooth, but it takes some serious doing with reversal.
