cross processing s8mm soon and I am wondering if i need to shoot a color chart or even a grey card? I'm shooting on 100 reversal color stock and processing with negative chemicals... my immediate intuition was that I woud not need to shoot cards but I want to double check. thanks!

It can't hurt. By cross processing the colours will not be natural, and so the colourist/grader will have to know what you have in mind. The Grey card and colour chart will let him or her set things as close to normal for a starting pass. You may of course want to drift further away.

then on the other hand the point of doing cross processing (correct me if I am wrong) is for a color shift, so having a color chart or gray scale is not necessary.
