I am shooting a short film pretty soon which we hope to send to festivals. Our hope is to shoot Anamorphic 35mm, I was able to find an affordable camera package which includes the old soviet Elite anamorphics. I've heard good things about them, but I was wondering if anyone could give me some imput about experiences with these lenses, or tests, anything. Obviously I'll test as much as I can myself, but we don't have enough of a budget to run a whole lot of film through the camera for testing.
Also, being that it is my first time going anamorphic I was wondering if there is anything else that I should be aware of going into post. The current plan is to get an SD uncompressed transfer and then strike an anamorphic print when we go to festivals with a photochemical finish. Right now, I guess I'm just asking for advice. Anything you could give me would be great. Thanks.
