Filming with 16mm film is a particularly challenging mode of film making. While many aspects of the digital film making process can be applied to filming with 16mm film, specific variations include often shooting with only one camera, different frame rates, stock latitude, less depth of field, specific differences in lighting requirements, single view finders, no video split, and the materiality of the film itself.
