This Fall I more than likely will have the opportunity to DP a short film that will be shot in Super 16mm. Now, I have a fair amount of experience with lighting and cameras like RED, DSLRs, Panasonic, a little Alexa, etc., but I was wondering if any seasoned film DPs had any general tips or insights about shooting film for the first time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I have an add on question to this topic. Would there be any benefit in shooting some super-8mm negative stock to get a rough idea what the super-16mm can do? Of course a super-8 high end telecine would have to be part of the process so one could see how the super-8 negative responds.
