Hello,

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!

Hey,

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.
Regards
Sam

You could also grab some Vision 800T stock and get a similar look to the Vision2 500T pushed.

Shoot Color Reversal and cross-process it...
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.



Good Luck
