Shooting Tungsten film outdoors without 85B
Posted 04 May 2008 - 06:40 AM
I am making my first film using a combination of HDV, Fuji 8650/8630 shot with a K-3 in s-16, and one roll of Kodak 7218 regular-16 shot with a Milliken high speed camera.
For different reasons (forgetfulness being one of them;-) I have shot all the 16mm footage so far in sunlight with no filter. I have some more outdoor stuff to shoot, and thought I'd keep shooting without filter to make it all match.
This footage is for a music video that we'd like to have quite a desaturated, coldish look in the end.
But can anyone tell me (or better yet, show me...) just how blue and "off" such unfiltered footage will look? How easy/successful would it be to correct the colour back to normal balance in post? If needed, would it be better to ask for this colour correction from the processing/scanning company?
As a first-timer, I would really appreciate your views on this. Thanks,

Then I'll keep shooting in the same way and plan to fix it in post. And when desaturating, I guess that should reduce the tint a little.

My film is all negative, so at least that makes me feel better. We'll see...
