I shoot stills and keep my 35mm film stock either in the fridge or freezer. I dabble in 16mm film making as well.
I have a selection of Kodak Vision 3 mainly 500t, 250d and 50d. I am keeping this in my fridge with the rest of the film. I have a couple of questions
a) a few years ago, unfortunately my 16mm footage was refridgerated and then kept at room temperature for a couple of years, and then I used the film - and when exposed, it was much more grainy than expected. Could this had been a result of the cold/warm/ageing effect, and then not using the film for a couple of years?
I didn't get the same issue with my 35mm still film stock - if it gets warmed and then refridgerated again, and even when used a little time later - I didn't get the same issue. Is 16mm motion picture film stock much more fragile in this respect?
