Hi all, Does anyone have any information on the workflow used for Frederick Wiseman's HIGH SCHOOL? Specifically interested in whether it was shot on negative or reversal, and whether release prints would have been made from an internegative or directly from AB rolls.
I projected what I thought was a very good 16mm print of the film for a class screening and one of the students commented that it looked "so much worse" than a Brakhage short (Window Water Baby Moving) we ran on Blu-Ray, so I'm trying to offer a better explanation to the instructor than "oh, it's 16mm." The print I ran was recently struck, a little soft, a little light contrast, but certainly not objectionable, and projected under the best possible circumstances - I don't think it came close to being called a bad print. Since this WAS a recently struck print, I wonder if anyone can comment on what the original prints looked like, or what 35mm blowup prints looked like. Of course, nobody says anything when they're shown 16mm at its best, but there you have it.... Any input welcome!
