I was curious.. Does anyone know what stock Schindler's List or "3 Kings" was shot on? And does anyone know of any articles, whether it be A.C. or not about either movie?

Thanks!

The DP, Newton thomas sigel had kodak make custom rolls for the movie. He then crossprocessed the film in negative (C-41/ECN-2 ) chemistry.

The link above is a 100ft bulk load of film. It working in 35mm motion picture cameras that DO NOT have registration pins.

Only the middle section of "Three Kings" was shot on cross-processed Ektachrome slide film (what later became released as 5285 but now is perfed and edge-coded for motion picture work).

The first section was shot on 500T 5296 with a bleach-bypass process.

"Schindler's List" used both Plus-X and Double-X b&w neg, just a lot more of the Double-X.

Awesome, thanks a lot guys! So I'm assuming that the fact that I'm not sigel basically means that I cant purchase any of that ekatchrome stock?

You can get anything from Kodak, regardless of who you are, as long as you buy at least 10-100 thousand feet. That isn't that unreasonable for a production with a decent budget, but be prepared to pay a premium.

I'd love to see a movie shot on K-64 or E100G processed regularly. Both of these films have great looks to them.

Sorry David, you're wrong. The film stock use was EPP . 100VS is the same as 5285. EPP doesn't crossprocess the same as 100VS. There's an article about the movie in American Cimeatographer.
It's in one of the fall 1999 issues. I have it somewhere around here.

James - Can you send me the same issue? (that is assuming you still have it eight years later!)
