HI ALL
I'll be shooting a short in Super 16 and the director wants to shoot in the 2:35 ratio.What are my best options ? Framing 2:35 and extracting 2:35 digitally or optically OR using the french system called TRONCHET which is basically putting an anamorphoser in front of your lenses.I've seen films shot with it and it works really well.( just a bit more difficult for the assistant....). If i go with the first options, what should i do to have the maximum definition?
THank you for your help

Is this going through a DI? Do you have to shoot a regular 16 gate for the anamorphic system, or does this tronchet system use 1.42:1 anamorphic lenses that use the full Super16 aperture? What's the final destination of the project? Personally, I'd bet that shooting spherically and doing an extraction would be much easier while still producing good results.

Just do a framing chart to a 2.35 ground glass. No biggy. Just think of it like shooting super 35 in a 2.35 format.

Since you'll be cropping the 16mm frame so much I would shoot with nothing slower than 50 asa stocks overexposed 2/3 to 1 stop or so, unless you are looking for a really grainy image.
