Im a student at the Northern Film school and in February we're shooting a short sc-fi thriller. Half the film will be shot in a geometric, clincal location under mixed lighting (daylight & fluorescents) - I plan to shoot on long lenses and high f-stops while overexposing to get a crisp, clean aesthetic similar to that of Primer. The other half of the film is being shot in a dark, grimey bar with a pervading red glow and a smokey atmosphere - To maintain a rough softness most of it will be shot on short-mid lenses on low f-stops. My main problem is the choice of stock, we can only really afford around 8 rolls of 400ft with the final film being around 10-15 minutes in length. I would like to use the same stock to be as economical as possible but im open for suggestions. Id appreiciate as much of advice on this as possible - footage and photos would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Congrats, sounds like a fun project.

How are you finishing it out? Cutting film or transfering/digital editing?

If you are telecining, much will be determined there.
