Black & White Film
Hi Rob! Here's the question...
The DP is shooting Kodak XX B&W, 200 ASA, ambient light.
Kodak told him that it was OK to underexpose by a stop, but
that the blacks might milk out. I can handle that in telecine, but I'm
concerned about grain and overall mush. The DP says
that underexposed B&W actually has less grain, unlike underexposed color
film. Any idea what I'm going to end up with if he underexposes by one stop?
Should he shoot a higher ASA color stock and take it to B&W in telecine?
Please answer ASAP. Thanks, Rose
