I'm working on a project and will shoot regular 16mm using 7217 for night interior and 7246 (old 250D) for day exterior.
I'm planning to push the 17 1 stop (underexposing 1 stop during shoot and overdeveloping 1 stop).
What should I expect from doing this to this stock?
Despite the additional stop i'll gain I'd like to have it more contrasty with deep blacks and to saturate it a little more. Are these the effects I may expect when doing this to this film?
What about the grain? Will it increase a lot? This stock seems to have an excellent small grain. I've seen it bleach processed and looked great. But never pushed it.
How will the latitude be affected by the pushing? Should I take care with my highlights? Or work normally as if I was using a 400 stock?
Last thing is. I may shoot an interior scene (lit with tungsten) with late afternoon light (late magic our) coming in... I'd like it to be very blue. Will the push of this film increase the saturation of this blue light coming in? I will shoot uncorrected - straight tungsten and light tungsten inside. But the windows and open door will be uncorrected.
Now about the use of the 7246. What should I expect when exposing this stock normally? I have used the new 7205 but never shot with this stock. I've seen tests I know it looks more saturated and contrasty than the new version (vision2 line).
Any suggestions to get an unusual look with it? I'll be shooting in the woods a very dreamy and surrealistic story - natural light. The look could be warmer. What filters could I use shooting day/ext?
