I'm going to shoot a short on 16 mm Vision 3 next week and I have to order the film stock.
The short will only be about 3 mins long and I plan on using a single 400' roll. It will be shot in a room, both during the day and at night, using natura light from the window during the day and practicals otherwise. I'm a bit undecided in what speed and colour balance to get. As I see it, I have three options:
Get 250D and use a filter for night time
Get 200T and use a filter for daytime
Get 500T and use a filter for daytime
My goal is to get good exposure during the night with minimal lighting, and also to have some grain, but not excessive amounts.
I'm thinking that if I get tungsten balanced stock and use a filter for daylight, I could have the full sensitivity of the film when I need it most, during the night. But I'm wondering if the 500T wouldn't be unpleasently grainy.
