Okay, I want to shoot a music video on super 16. Its going to be a dark video with an Underworld/Gothika type feel to it. What Im wondering is whats the best way to light it and what is the best way to achieve that cold dark look. I dont want to underlight it, but I also dont want to overlight it. Is there anything special I should do in processing? What stock is recommended? I know they shot Gothika with Fuji. But, I dont know what stock. Normally I would do some tests, But I just dont have the money for it. And I dont think that this is a project that I can ahieve the results I want on DVX, maybe, but I dont think so. So if anybody has any suggestions please let me know. Thanks

I believe Underworlds' cold blue look was achieved in post. I've seen some stills from the production in which the colours are quite normal. I think it was done in DI, but anyone who knows better should feel free to correct me.
