Hi,

I was just wondering whether anyone has shot a motion picture test on Ektachrome Ifra Red stock, processed with E-6?

Thanks for any comment on colour infra red.

I believe Alexander used EIR in it's end sequences.

I'd have to poke around for a source or confirmation, but I'm pretty sure they ran out and shot on something else and matched it in DI.

I've never seen a continuous E-6 line that could handle motion picture film lengths.
If anyone knows of one I would like to know where/who it is.
Did not know colour infrared was offered in long lengths and with cine perfs except on very special order with something like a 10,000 foot minimum.

A number of labs run E6 lines for 7280/7285/5285. Here in Canada there are Northwest in Vancouver (www.nwfx.com) for Super 8, 16mm and 35mm and Exclusive in Toronto (www.exclusivefilm.net) for Super 8 and 16mm. Exclusive also does VNF in a tweaked E6 process. I just got 400' of 7240 and 7250 back from them and it looks great, much better than what I've hand-processed in E6.

Forde in Seattle does 7280/7285 too.
