I'm about to start production on my first feature film on film. We are shooting Super 16, and I have an opportunity to do stock test before I choose my stock.
I was thinking of testing Kodak 250D/500T Vision 3, and 50D/200T Vision 2. The project I'm shooting is a romantic comedy, and is generally high-key with some crucial night exteriors.
I don't want this to be a gritty film (like Half Nelson or Hustle and Flow). Ideally we'd shoot on 35mm with a slower stock, but budget won't allow.
I'm wondering if anybody has any tips for what to do at a stock test in general, and what to do specifically given my desire for low-grain and bright colors on this project.
Thanks so much,
