We will be shooting a 35mm for our final project at Full Sail university in a few months. I wanted to find out what the different film stocks look like. if anyone could send me a link or maybe email me a way to find a dvd on different stocks, shooting the same scene so i can see the differences, that would be great. I would like to get different choices on fuji, kodak, etc and who you all think is best. Thanks a ton.

Both Fuji and Kodak will be happy to send you promotional material regarding their stocks if you contact either of them, via phone.
A lot of look can be dialed in in post, of course, in terms of film stock, but that depends on what post route your going.
Most DPs will say, though, that the look of the film is primarily related to what you're shooting! So production design must work in unison with the look you're trying to achieve [see David Mullen's threat on Manure for an example of that!].

Best of luck and hopefully you won't be limited in choice of stock by what deals you can get.
