I am planning a 16mm short. Emphasis on characters; their behavior and relationships to each other. Internal conflict type stuff.
The story and situations are grounded in reality, with the exception of one or two sequences, which are still events that do happen in life, but aren't exactly typical in most people's experiences.
So, I am planning to probably only use ND's in exteriors. That will probably be my only filters. No punching of the colors in post, no crushing of the blacks, no enhancing contrast, and no grain reduction.I will be doing a few simple tests soon. But I am also curious to view some other films that kept it simple. Id prefer 16mm, but will also watch 35. Film only, nothing shot on video. And color, no B&W.
Aside from stuff by Lars Von Trier, can anyone recommend any films that more or less followed the above described approach?
I would guess most of Sidney Lumet's 1970's work? John Cassavetes' stuff?
One film that immediately came to mind was Nick Gomez's LAWS OF GRAVITY (1992).
zero-to-minimal filtration & color correction, no DI
