choosing film stock
Posted 14 March 2011 - 06:55 PM
I'm working with film 2nd time now as a DP for a short film in my university. The film is set all in night interiors. It's about a woman who keeps moving her living room furniture. I would like the photography to pass some quiet desperation, it's a slow film that not much happens. I was thinking of going with fuji, because of it's 'painterly feel', but not sure yet. The other film I went with kodak and I was very pleased with the result, but it's a really different kind of movie. I'm looking for a soft and clear image, kind of bluish, with a bit of grain on it (not much). A influence for the photography is the film Jeanne Dielman, by Chantal Akerman.
As I'm new with film, I decided to come here and ask you guys that have more experience with this. Any ideas about film stock? What about fuji eterna 400T or 500T?
Thanks a lot,

I forgot to say that the film will be shot in 35mm and the camera is an Arriflex IIC
500T would be the right choice with little underexposed ,and mix your lighting with tungsten and Hmi and par (day light)
