So its been a while since I've shot film - the prevalence of the variacam blah blah - and the last time that I knew the look of stocks and could choose them from memory was when 5277 and 5279 were the primary working stocks. I think 87 was just coming in and people were liking its low con properties. I'm reading here that 5218 is being shot a lot and wondering how people would contrast (pun) this to the older stocks.
I'm online to shoot a short in either super 35 or 'scope (for 2:35). Its a psych. thriller set in and around a mansion with lots of int. and ext. night. I'm looking for rich blacks, and a warm, soft keys from just behind the 180 (to increase the ratio)
Thanks for your input.
