Hi, this fall I am about to shoot a 35mm short feature. The set is a low dim place with no florescent lighting. Just light from the windows and normal light bulbs of the place will be used. The last scene will take place at night on the street with just sight lamps lighting the way. I need to know which stock is best to used. Thank you for your help.

Kodak Vision 2 500T (5218) is the standard high speed mp film. Do you have any particular reason to use anything else for your production, or are you just checking to see if anyone's on the forum tonite?

Here's a link to technical data for all the Kodak color negative films:

Are you sure you don't want to supplement and control the lighting, rather than just use "available light"? For "low dim" and night scenes, Kodak VISION2 500T Color Negative Film 5218 would be the usual choice, as only a few footcandles can give adequate exposure with a fast lens:

Exposure Table-Tungsten Light

At 24 frames per second (fps), 170-degree shutter opening:

Lens Aperture f/1.4 f/2 f/2.8 f/4 f/5.6 f/8 f/11 f/16
Footcandles Required 5 10 20 40 80 160 320 640
