But then I read that your supposed to under expose by 1/3 of a stop.
Also if there is a super 16 film stock that you know of that is better for vibrant colors that would also be helpful.

7285 is reversal stock, and is quite vibrant. Keep in mind 7285 is 100D. If your planing on using 7218 500T, 100D might be to slow for your project. Reversal fim also has less latitude as well.
Some examples would be MAN ON FIRE, DOMINO, and I think BLACK HAWK DOWN these films were also push processed I believe.
Fuji has a new VIBRANT stock 160 I think as well.
Good luck on your project.

As far as what to tell the lab, just have then process it Normal, and if you're going to print, you'll definitely want them to correct it when it goes to timing. Same goes for telecine and grading it.
Underexposing by 1/3 mostly applies to video. When shooting DV or HD, it doesn't hurt to underexpose just a little bit to avoid blown out highlights and to have more information to pull from.
