Hi

I am a cinematography student in South-Africa and I am shooting my first proper student film in 1 months time. We are allowed 2 cans of film stock for free so I ordered Vision 3 500T and 250D to play it safe. My film is an experimental horror and mainly takes place in a house.
I will be shooting it on Super16.
My question is this:
I want to achieve a very desaturated blue/ green overall look for the interior of the house, since there is NO red in our film whatsoever. I am not sure what film stock would work best for this interior. We are given a couple of blondes and redheads, as well as some HMI's (2.5, 4, 6K) to use. Basically want to recreate the look of the new Sherlock Homes film for my interiors. I also have to option of renting some storm blue filters, but I am not sure what will look best with what film stock. We also don't get time or extra film stock to do tests, so I am a little worried.
Any help would be appreciated.

Duran

Just use the tungsten stock ('19) if you want a blue-ish look, and then use the HMI's and tungsten lamps with blue gels. 250D doesn't make sense if you don't need a neutral-to-warm image.
