I'm shooting a short in the next few weeks and the director and I believe it's content should be told in the scope of 2.40. We will not be able to shoot with anamorphic lenses, so our thought is to shoot wider than we would normally, cropping the tops and bottoms later to achieve the crop. Unless there are better suggestions from you fine folks to achieve the result we are looking for, my additional thoughts would be to shoot 6k (RED DRAGON) and finish in 4k, which would give us the additional field of view on the horizontals adding to our cheat of the anamorphic format. I'm completely prepared for someone to point out the faults in the ideas above, but in case they are correct here is my actual question. Would I be safe in relying on the 2.40 frame lines in 6k when we end up finishing in 4k, or should we compensate one way or the other to make sure the framing translates properly in the end? Thanks in the advance!
I'm throwing ideas out because I'm interested in shooting 2.39 with standard 16mm film, which would thus require 2x Anamorphic Lenses with a 1.19 Frame on a standard 16mm strip, specifically this means fitting the largest 1.19:1 rectangle possible on 16mm, single perf or double, whichever gives more room efficiently without compromising steady feed. 1. Is it possible? 2. Who could manufacture such a film? 3. What would it cost? Thanks for reading this madness. -Steven
