Hi Brad,

What route are you going, presumably you are cropping the super 16 frame down to 2.35?

Or have you found a special set of anamorphic lenses?

Just curious,
Andy

Just shoot it for the cleanest, sharpest image you can; just as you would for any other application. Choose good lenses, the slowest speed film applicable, and make sure your focus is sharp. There's really not much else you can do, beyond what you would normally do to ensure a good image.

Other than that, just test your lenses, film stock, and post correction to find the limits of where it will fall apart on the big screen. For 16mm that usually means lens MTF at wider apertures, exposure latitude of the filmstock, and color artifacts from extreme correction in the DI.
