Hi all,thanks for this opportunity to share, and ask questions.Im shooting a student film on super 16mm. We have to recreate the look from "eyes wide shut" the interior of the castle.We don't have money to afford any developing tricks ie bleach by pass of pushing. We are looking to use practical lamps with some chinese lanterns,and some dimmers etc. All tungsten lights n bulbs
Is there any filters we could use to help enhance the look?
or any other tricks or methods that could help us..

Here's an AC mag article on the photography, although I wouldn't push your Super 16 as much as they did with 35mm. They seem to have used low con filters.

See if there's a Varicon in your area.

p.s. Kubrick saw fit to push the stock two stops and then overexpose by a stop on Eyes Wide Shut. Weird approach.
