Thats actually a pretty poor scan for super 8mm, especially considering this is for a P.T Anderson movie. I wonder who did the transfer. Tisk Tisk, Ocho Y Pico does the best super 8 scans...they are located in Spain. I am sure in California Fotokem would of done a dope ass job, or Cinelicious or however you spell that...
The D.P should of used 50D instead of 500T and 200T if she wanted more latitude she could of went with 250D. 250D and 50D would of yielded better results considering the nature of the shoot( the shots are EXT. in California sun, using a Tungsten balanced film was a poor choice but the footage should be re scanned.
Really what she also should of done was to try and find large stock piles of 100D Color reversal film, THAT would of given THE LOOK.
but nonetheless its still the BEST thing I have seen regarding behind the scenes shooting espcially when it comes to just being a fan of P.T Anderson, this trumps the Magnolia That Moment thing, cause you really get a look at the cameras, lights, the dollys, everything you reallllly want to see. It was cool to watch that footage that was leaked online b4 the movie came out some guy shot with his phone the scene were J.P escorts K.W to her car and then you see J.P walk off set and signal to somebody for a stoogie, what was interesting about that from a film nerd perspective was the productions use of ultra strong lights probably a 12k HMI being bounced off a giant white board or w.e, from the roof across the street, it was probably something like (2) 12k (FAKE SUN) lights being bounced off two giant white cards,anyway shit like that fascinates me.
Inherent Vice is an interesting film, its the first film P.T Anderson shot in 1:85 ( although the Master was the first departure from the Anamorphic lenses but he choose to shoot in 65mm and 35mm so its hybrid movie, props to him for blowing the 35 to 65mm and vice versa for the 70mm projection.
I hope P.T Anderson shoots his next movie in ULTRA PANAVISION like Hateful 8. Isn't it so cool to see two American Filmmakers working within the studio system, making REAL MOVIES, being inspired by one another. In these lame times when the studios crank out ADVERTISEMENTS masquerading as movies, its refreshing! Paul brought back the 70mm thing now Q.T is doing it up in slightly wider aspect ratio, it really is just great to see this kinship amongst directors!
