I have a digital film (black and white and color) that I want to transfer to film. My question is about, first, whether I should transfer the film to black and white film or color film; and then, what my options are if I'm interested in hand processing.
1. I have heard that transfering digital BW to color film may make the BW images have colored hues. But if I transfer to BW film, I would lose the color images.
2. If I get the film transfered to a film negative, is it possible to hand process the negative and also have a print made with normal processing? I'm not quite sure how processing works--once I have the negative in my hand, do I have to make a decision between EITHER hand processing OR having it professionally done and once it's processed it's done? (does it actually change the film itself and then you would project that?). Or if I'm interested in testing out hand processing but worried about wrecking the film (or if it looks terrible), is it possible to have the negative film duplicated beforehand so I could hand process one version and professionally process the other? Or would I just have to ask the digital-to-film lab to film the movie twice and make two negatives, one that I would hand process, and one that I would have them process professionally?
