I have heard that Vera Drake was shot on Super 16. I rented it and thought besided it being a wonderful film, it looked incredible. Dick Pope did a supberb job. I could not tell that it was shot on Super 16 instead of 35,if indeed that was the case. Checked it out on IMDB and they say that it was shot on 35mm. I am curious which stock they used to get those fantastic tones and fine grain. If it was Super 16, I can see that being my format of choice for a while to come.

Day three also included a Q&A with cinematographer Dick Pope, BSC. He explained the process behind Vera Drake, which was photographed in the Super 16 format on Kodak Vision2 500T 7218 film stock, transferred to a digital intermediate and output to 35 mm. ?I was very happy to be one of the first users of the 7218 in the UK,? said Pope. ?I used the DI mainly to maintain quality through the blow-up. When I started my career I made many Super 16 to 35 mm optical blow-ups. With the DI, it was nice to know the grain would be there but controlled. I?m very pleased with how the film turned out.?

thanks Jonn,

I am amazed at how small the grain was. 500 speed film and super 16, yet it looked really sharp.
How similar is it to the 7217 in terms of grain? Is the 17 that much more sharp? Grain free?
