As someone who has started out in postproduction just eight years ago, I have never worked with nitrate film. All safety issues aside, how is nitrate different from acetate? Does it have a specific look to it? Were there ever color stocks on nitrate or was it B&W only?

I haven't seen that film. But I've had the pleasure of working with, restoring, and watching a significant nitrate over the years, and nothing compares.
