I will be shooting a short film shortly with a 2 perf configuration Panaflex for scope aspect ratio. We will doing an HD telecine for our post work and delivery.
I have never shot 2 perf before and was wondering if anyone here had any experience of shooting 500T film in the format. I am a little concerned that the image could be excessively grainy and was planning to shoot a low ASA stock.
Thing is, it is a horror short and all the scenes are night exteriors and night interiors. We are going for a late 70s/early 80s vibe and I want to keep the image as dark and mood as possible (think Dean Cundey's work on John Carpenter's early films). For budgetary reasons we are going to shoot Fuji stock (yes, there is some still available in the UK) and for aesthetic reasons I want to use the Fuji Vivid stocks. I was thinking of using the 160T but am concerned about the amount of light I will need. The Fuji Vivid 500T is still available which is why I am wondering if anyone has any experience of its grain structure when shot in the 2 perf format.
Many thanks in advance,
