  1. What effect are you talking about exactly? Everything I see is jump cuts that would be done in post. Like Phil said, this probably wasn't shot on film but rather on video. Wide angle lenses, a cheap jib, knowing the cut tool in FCP, Premiere, or Vegas, and a little bit of know-how with a color corrector plug-in, and you can do this in an afternoon.
  2. It helps to separate the background from the subject. I have seen an equal lit subject and green screen start to tear away parts of the subject in keying.
  3. I haven't seen Fuji's price catalog, but from everything I've heard they're comparable to Kodak. Here's the kodak film price catalog: http://motion.kodak.com/US/en/motion/Produ...ation/index.htm It looks like the comparable film price is about $141.92 a roll for either 100T or 200T 1/2 perf and 250D 1 perf--250D s perf is $2 and change more per roll; so multiply that by 10, and you've got $1,419.20 just in film stock. If this is for a STUDENT film, like at a film school of some kind, you can get a considerable discount(30%), but if this on your own, I'm not sure if you can get that. I'd talk to a sales rep about it. After the raw stock purchase, then you have to think about processing fees. There's a film lab near me that does 16mm at $0.17 per foot, so 4000 x $0.17 = $680. From there, any number of costs could come up. Different labs charge for different things. If it's scanned at Hi-Res for a digital transfer to a hard drive for editing(which I would recommend for a student film/project), there are probably more fees associated with that. Sometimes you can work out a deal because you are a student to cover their processing fees at a full rate and get everything else comped. One of my friends actually did something insane and ran the negatives through a 16mm projector at a white wall, and recorded the projected image on a HDV camera. He had to invert the image, but it worked, in a sense. I wouldn't recommend that. Basically, you just need to talk to a sales rep for both the film brand you want to use and the film lab you want to have your processing done at. My initial estimate: At least $2,100. Hope that helped.
  4. Are you still selling this, or has it been purchased?
