Achieving the look
Posted 22 June 2008 - 04:04 PM
I'm shooting my first 16mm project in the end of july. Its a student-shortfilm placed in 1930s countryside.
We´re planning to shoot on 7201 (50D) and 7205 (250D), and the new 7219 (500T) for nighttime. Our budget can handle one-light transfer for 2K.
I wish to achieve a desaturated, "washed out" look for the film. Ive attached a photo reference.
its now and then used in advertisements, like at this dhl ad
Does anyone have experience or advices on such as emulsions, rating the film, filters, post?
Also, is there a commonly used name to refer to this look. Other than desaturated, that is.. Where/How has this look originated?
Thanks very much!

I mean, it's not too hard to desaturated an image in post, overall, and if you can, try shooting 100ft or so of each negative and just doing a quick test correction on it overall. It might cost some money up front but it can identify problems you might have later on in your workflow/locations/production design/stocks.
