simple question that i'd love to have the answer to:

what film stock(s) did robert richardson use on 'snow falling on cedars'?

the grain looks practically non-existent in most cases (certainly anamorphic has contributed to this...)

thanks very much.

I believe a lot of it was shot on Kodak 5293 EXR 200T, though Vision 200T 5274 had come out in 1997. I'm just saying that because Richardson seemed to really like that stock. He also used some of the lower-con EXR 320T 5277 on "Four Feathers" (2002) so perhaps he tried that on this film, I don't know.

The movie was shot with some sort of net on the back of the lens, and the prints used a silver retention process.

thanks david. i was wondering if it had been a 100T stock, due its distinct level of clarity. can you cast any light on what allowed for such crisp, low grain images?

200T stock in the 35mm anamorphic format is pretty fine-grained in appearance due to the larger negative area.
