Hi everyone,
Prepairing an "arthouse" feature and we,the director and the DP settled that the best way to realize the story is to shoot it on S16 b/w film and than scan 2K and make a DI.
We believe that ORWO UN74 will be the best option for its price lower than 7222 has and for its speed (400 ASA instead of Kodak's 200 ASA.with standart developing time,of cause)
Unfortunatly there is no film stock of ORWO neither Kodak at the current time in our country so we are waiting for ordered cans for shooting tests and it will take a lot of time(
Maybe some of you guys have made a few tests of the stocks for feature projects or even shot a feature for theatrical realease? Not 35 but S16? What could you tell about it? Is ORWO a good option?
Thanx a lot

We have just finished up doing a large amount of S-16mm Orwo with a 4K scan for a client who is very happy with the results, allot of it is UN-74 with a Push +1 it is a very nice looking film stock.

Thank you Robert!

and is it really necessary to make a 4K scan for S16? I mean you get more film grain and structure without dramatically improved quality, isn't it?

and you've pushed it to 800 ASA partly so maybe you've got some stills to look at? it will be nice)

We do what our customers request ;-)

 

In this case it was a Push +1 and a 4K scan.

 

I can't release customer files, I do have a UN-74 reel I shot and I can do a 2K scan of it as a format and scan demo.

I will try to bring the UN-74 from a music project I shot in tomorrow and put it on the Scan Station.

You have UN 54 and N 74. Correct designation prevents confusion. Just saying

 UN as Universal Negative is for 54 for its ability to serve as a reversal film also

I forgot I had this on Vimeo:

 

 

I think you can download the original 2K h264 from Vimeo and I will try to see about finding the ProRes444 file or do a rescan when I can dig the negative out of my film.

yeah thanks!

it would be better to look at 2K scan and maybe download it to figure out does it fit for DCP purposes for sure!

Yeah I know 5222/7222 pretty well.it seems much more low contrast and clean in terms of pure white but it's twice higher price and this is critical for the current project....
