Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to know if there are any feature films shot on 16mm (or s16), entirely handheld ? (Or at least a great portion of it)

Best Regards,

SMR

28 Weeks Later used a lot of handheld and it was S16. The scenes with Brad Pitt in Babel were S16 and I think were handheld a lot of the time too.

'Grey Gardens', 'Salesman' and other Maysles films.

Probably anything by Fred Wiseman.

Same for Pennebaker.

Look for cinema verite documentaries.

Check out The Devil's Rejects. Great-looking, gritty, S16 handheld shooting.

"Tigerland" I remember a lot of that was hand held too, and S16mm.

Wexler's "Medium Cool" had a lot of handheld 16mm since a lot of it was shot guerrilla/news camera style.

"Bloody Sunday" by Paul Greengrass redefined handheld for me.

There is only one 16mm sequence, the cocktail party with the news cameramen.
But lots of 35mm hand held using an Eclair CM3.

The cocktail party used ECO and NPR.

The lenses were too long for my tastes.

Recently watched 'Shock Waves'; not all handheld, but quite alot.
7247 in an ACL, 200' mags.
Watchable for a zombie movie. They were SS zombies, so a bit more disciplined and not cannibals.

"Fear of a Black Hat" was shot in 16mm and a lot of the shots were hand-held.
