Basically i am a filmmaker from India and i want 2 do a low budget film and after browsing the net, i came 2 know this super 16 format which is 20% bigger than the regular 16mm. If i shoot in this format and blow it up to 35mm will there be any complications. i want ur expertise views

You'd have been better putting this question in the 16mm forum.

Super 16 was originally developed for blowing up to 35mm, so there are no problems in that respect.

If you do a search in the forum you'll find lots of threads discussing optical optical or DI blow ups to 35mm. You should discuss with your lab how they handle the blow up workflow and the costs.

Here are a couple of threads:

Down side to Super 16 is you can't project the format with sound.

Regular 16mm lenses may not cover the Super 16 frame.

For a quality blow up you need a high quality lab.
