Hi everyone! I know choosing different stocks almost always depends on the situation in which your shooting, and forgive me if I'm being to naive about the subject. I plan on shooting a short film soon using a Cannon Scoopic 16mm. To my simplest understanding, daylight stocks are tuned more to shooting in direct daylight, and Tungsten are tuned more to shooting under tungsten/photofloods etc. The film takes place mostly inside a house, and due to budget constraints, I plan to shoot on naturally available light, along with strategically moving lamps and other light sources that are already inside the house to fit my needs. Some scenes take place outside, during the day, and a few scenes outside during the night. For continuity within the look and feel of the film, what stock would you guys suggest shooting on? I know there are many variables and certain things you can't really predict unless on location in terms of lighting etc but what stock would be a generally good one to use in this type of situation? I originally planned on using 250D for pretty much the whole film, inside and out day and night, but now I'm doubting that strategy. Should I use a combination of stocks depending on the scene? And what recommendations would you suggest for day/night inside/outside? Like I said, If I could use one stock to shoot the whole film that would be great, just for continuity in look and feel, and so there are no mistakes when loading and shooting the film (loading the wrong stock for a certain scene etc) I read somewhere that 250D or a daylight stock would probably be the best general stock in this situation but I wanted to get some opinions first. I am also getting it telecined and color graded by professionals, so if there is a discrepancy in using one certain stock for the entire film, can they fix that while grading in post? What stock would give me the most flexibility in grading etc? Thank you!
