R16 to S16 print?
Posted 25 December 2012 - 05:13 PM
Was wondering if anyone has any knowledge on this. I shot a movie on negative stock that is a combination of Regular 16mm and Super 16mm. I would like to get a Super 16mm print of the entire movie, that I can project with a projector converted to S16mm. The Regular 16mm footage would need to be optically blown up/cropped on top and bottom to fill the Super 16mm frame. Are there any labs out there that will do this? The one in my area that I talked to said they couldn't do it.

Talk to Tom at www.videofilmsolutions.com. They are based in Maryland in the USA and have the capability to do 35mm and 16mm film outs with optical sound tracks. That way you'd be compatible with every 16mm school projector you could find.
Here's his info:

You'd have to secure a 16mm projector and an anamorphic lens (they are a little more common than you might think) but you'd have to nail down what type of anamorphic squeeze you'd be doing. 16:9 or Cinemascope?
Will, I had given a bit of thought to this possibility, though I didn't think about doing an anamorphic squeeze on the print. This could be an option. Thanks for the suggestions and the contact info!
These guys are selling new old-stock 16mm projectors and have multiple types of anamorphic lenses available. They bought up a ton from the government years ago and have them stuffed in a warehouse. I bought a Telex projector from them and it is great. Came with extra bulb and a zoom lens. They sell them on eBay too.

I hope you do it because it would look amazing. I might even buy a print if you make them available.
