HI, I'm doing a short next week, and am trying to decide on film stock to order. The film will be shot on s16mm and then DI'd. I 'm trying to achieve a soft colours, natural look, with highlights being high but blacks pushed a bit so they are almost gray. Essentially getting more in the midtones without lighting flat... think Margot at the Wedding, or Sofia Coppola's Somewhere.. Now, I kind of have to go with Kodak so no fuji stocks are in question. My options are, shooting on the 7213, rating it at 320 or 400 and pushing a stop, or shooting on the 7219 and getting the look on the DI. Any ideas/suggestions? Any experience with pushing the 7213?

Any Ideas or comments are highly appreciated...

thnx.

Pushing increases contrast so I wouldn't push '13, I'd just shoot '19 or '13 normally, create the softer look in the color-correction.

You could try and ad a filter, but then again, you could do all this in post.
