16mm "Gritty" film stock for music video
Posted 09 May 2005 - 09:57 PM
I am shooting a clip for a band that don't want a polished look but instead a gritty feel.
So I will shoot B&W Super8 and Color 16mm and intercut the two.
Can anyone recommend a 16mm stock?
The only reference points I could find to give you an idea of what I mean:
CLICK ON "GHETTO ROCK" link.
It would be mainly avaliable light in a city-scape but also in early morning sunrise in open spaces.
Any advice would be wonderful!

Well you could use Vision 500T 7279, and push it two stop with a 2/3 stop overexposure (1,200 ISO). This force processing will give you a grainy, high contrast, saturated look. I think that this would give you a gritty look with available light. For the sunrise shots, you could try leaving the 85B filter off, to give it a colder look which could work well.
I hope this is useful.

You'll get that very funky high-saturation look...
It's one of Spike Lee's favorite looks...
If you're looking for an example of this check out the film Clockers.
