Greetings,

The director I'm working with is thinking about cross-processing (reversal) a pivotal scene to accentuate its importance.

However, we will be using 7217 and 7218 for the remainder of the film and I'm afraid the cross-processed reversal film will conspicuously draw attention to itself.

Can anyone suggest an alternative 16mm, color negative film that may create subtle effects "similar" to the reversal?


Thank you,

mdg

Subtle and cross processed do not go together at all. I suggest if you want "subtle" and "not calling attention" you don't do anything cross processed as it would be entirely not agreeable with your goals.

What do you want it to look like?

How about just straight reversal (not cross-processed?) Kodak's newest reversal stock will be most subtle, its older stock less subtle, but still a look.

If you are shooting on 16mm, does that mean straight to video? Maybe just a creative color-correction will be enough? I don't think changing between any of the modern color negative stocks alone is going to bring you any significant difference.
