I love really blown out punchy photography, and am wondering what would be a good film to use to get this effect?:



and some more examples:

5285/ 7285 is a nice start.

thanks!

I know that 7285/5285 is meant for outdoor/exterior shots, but could it also be done indoors and still get a good image?

in example, does this video: look like it was shot with 7285/5285 stock, or would I want to use something else for indoor shots to get a similar effect?

I have used 5285 indoors... it is done all the time. No need to look at Film as 'outdoor' or indoor'.. but rather it's Speed (iso) and Kelvin Balance (color temp).... and work in that realm (i.e. order Tungsten or HMI Lamps accordingly).

You can also do a ton in Post... but Reversal Film will get you headed in the right direction.

Kodak reversal still film
I'm not sure which would match up with 85 the best, but there are a few to choose from.

My guess is that the funky, unrealistic effect in the first link was done in post, regardless of the stock used. (Didn't check the other links. The first was enough)

Like, it didn't matter what filmed they used--they just maxed color saturation and contrast in post, which is okay for a minute or two--but anything longer, and it's just annoying and all wrong.

Can you imagine watching a feature film that looked like that throughout? But otherwise, I agree. I love those dynamic colors.

Umm, maybe *50* -85? :P

According to the late John Pytlak, it was the same stock as E100VS (5085 edge code) the vivid-saturated version of the E-series Ektachromes.

Ahh, I was unaware. I've shot all of the E series film at one point or another, but I'm very bad at paying attention to edge code.

you could also try Fuji Vivid 160 T. Still a neg. stock, but with leanings toward the contrast and saturation of reversal. Also, you'd be surprised at how much punch you can get from force processing. You can look here for an example: Stock was 5246 250 D. For the punchy, saturated poop, I pushed the stock a stop and a half but left the EI rated at 250. The other parts are a full skip bleach on the neg. (rated at 400). Hope that helps.
