Bleach bypass is one of those processing strategies that seems to be loved by every generation of filmmakers, but I'm wondering what it can be used for beyond making the audience feel a character's sadness and/or fear? What unexpected emotions can it be used to convey—what reaction can it evoke from the audience? How have you used it to create other moods? Would there be a humorous use of bleach bypass? And finally, is it best used for the whole picture or is it more effective when used in just a few scenes?
Im finally shooting on film again in a few months on a short film. Our budget will only allow us to shoot 16, but Im considering using ENR -- which I might fund myself -- because the dark storyline could be enhanced by slightly bleak and contrasty cinematography. Ive never heard of anyone using any silver retention processing on 16, so naturally Im curious if there is any precedent. Has anyone heard about or tried this? Im going to test this, obviously, but it would be nice to know as much as I can before testing. Its been so long since Ive shot film that Im not even sure ENR is still offered at FotoKem (LA) or Technicolor (LA) anymore. Last I heard skip bleach and ENR are still an option.
