Sorry to bring this topic up again, but i have a question that i think fits here.
I was wondering a bit on the cinematography of brown bunny, and although I found out in the forum that he used the old 7245 stock, I was wondering on the processes of the film.
Especially these washed out scene:

My first guess was that he overexposed a bit, but I'm not sure that alone did it. Could it be that the brightness was not in the camera exposure but in the print machine?

Or maybe I'm way off, and someone could shed some new info on the matter.

Much thx,
lucas

There are many steps in this, including how the video transfer was done and how the blowup from Super-16 occurred. I also happen to know that old converted Baltar lenses were used for the film.

uhm, okay.

lemme put it this way


guess if i overexpose 1 stop, and underdevelop 0.5 stop,
with 7201 kodak stock, I could get something similar?

Or maybe just do a 0.5 pull,
and brighten half a stop with the printing machine?


In any case, I'm using a darn old lens and the final copy will be in 16mm.

much thx,
