retro looking film stock
Posted 23 September 2009 - 04:48 PM
I am looking at doing a small project that is similar to the 80's milk tray adverts (like the one where the man jumps off a cliff to a boat, some of you may recall them)
I've been looking for a stock that will give me a similar look to this old footage. I'm thinking that fuji's newly released Eterna Vivid 500T would give me the high contrast and saturated colour but it has very fine grain for a fast stock and I want as much grain as possible (Im shooting s16)
Does anyone have any suggestions? I know there is the option of doing it in post of course.
(milk tray adverts are on youtube: )

The only other option I can think of is shoot the Fuji stock like you want but keep the light low so you can shoot with a more open aperature and this will help make it a bit grainier. This is as much as I can help.

KODAK 7274 or 7248 off of EBAY and do a clip test to make sure the fogging is not extreme.
It may even add to that older look. Try shooting a test of 7285 and desaturate in post. Lastly regarding filmstock , try some FUJI 500D film with a polarizer. Print the film onto KODAK TELEPRINT film
and THEN telecine using a CRT telecine(MILLENIUM-if you want HD or RANK for SD), but not a
SPIRIT telecine. Wardrobe added to the above mentioned kungfu techniques will get you closer to your
