I'm shooting a 100ft of 16mm film for a project. I'm trying to get this kind of look (attached file). Probably going to need an ISO of at least 400, though I could push a good 100 or a 200. I'm thinking of using a daylight balanced film with tungsten lights to get the color. Any one have any suggestions on the type of film stock I could use that would give me this look?

There is quite a bit of DI in this look, I would say.

Short of DI... here is what would be my recipe;

1. Shoot 100t or 200t Stock under 3200k.

2. Pull Process 1 1/2 - 2 Stops.

3. Use an Antique Suede or add an 85.

4. Ask for a Location, Wardrobe and Make Up with Muted Colors.

5. Attend the Transfer!


If you can not afford the Lighting Package... shoot it where there is a lot of Daylight coming into the room with double 85s.

Good Luck!
