Hey Ladies & Gents

 

Simple questions....

I liked the look of "The Squid and the Whale" and many of the daylight scenes in "The Last King of Scotland" looked really cool as well. These were the first S16 films that came to mind...

It is a great format. If you are considering it for a shoot, I'd say "do it!" I have used it and if offers me all I need.

I thoroughly enjoyed Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. I liked the story which I felt was in the same vain as The Lady Killers... I'm speaking of the original version of course.

 

As for the films look, I wasn't terribly offended either, but I can tolerate quite a bit if I like the story. Which I did.

bully (2001)

Dir: Larry Clark

Dop: Steve Gainer.

 

Nothing really pushed the limits cinematographically about this film but the over all visual aesthetic suited the story well.

Yes, Woodstock was shot with Eclairs NPR"S

-------------------------------------------------

 

I check Imdb for bully and says that it was done on 35mm

I wonder where did you hear that it was done on 35? I'm curious

 

Thanks

'March of the Penguins'

 

Plus many other fine nature documentaries like 'Dragons of the Galapagos' and 'The Skeleton Coast.'

 

And I'm not even 100% sure if this particular film was shot on 16mm but I assume it was - the Rolling Stones concert film of their US 1981 tour - 'Let's Spend the Night Together.'

i think woodstock was shot with eclair cameras right?

 

 

There were definitely arri M's used as well you can see them in some of the shots with the giant 1200' 16mm mags. I wish I still had mine (I had a 1200' mag too) great camera.

Rob Zombie's "The Devil's Rejects" was shot on Super 16 and looked wonderful. Ironically, I was watching a DVD tonight called, "AC/DC No Bull -- Plaza De Toros De Las Ventas, Madrid" which is a live AC/DC concert from 1996 that was shot on Super 16. The cover for the DVD even states, "Filmed live on Super 16mm film"! It looks (and sounds) magnificent!

What about the Squid and the Whale? Or Hustle and Flow? Neither are favorites of mine but I think are great uses of the medium... and they were shot with mostly 500 stocks.

 

Oh and Factory Girl, Last King of Scotland, Sherry Baby and Half Nelson are recent popular additions to the Super16 family. And I hate to admit it, but I was fooled by Scotland... I thought it was 35 when I was at the theater, having not read any tech stuff beforehand like I usually do. Maybe it was because the the screen wasn't that big... either way, I was shocked to learn that. Though seeing the desert scenes in Babel shocked me more.

 

Who needs 35 or complex HD gear anymore?? :ph34r:
