hi, we're looking to shoot on very high speed black and white film, as grainy and high contrast as possible, to look like stills film ISO 1600 or even 3200....

tri-x reversal pushed by a stop?? or is there something even more effective to get a more extreme look?

thanks in advance

Use Double-X neg pushed two stops in 35mm, probably double-x pushed one would work in 16. I'd use neg over reversal for the latitude, which can get pretty tricky when you're pushing film.

I doubt you could do this unless you're developing the film yourself, but using Dektol or D-19 would really give you a high contrast look.
