I've noticed recently that a few current production television shows and films are being shot on 16mm. I know it's a popular choice for lower budget productions, but is it still that much cheaper than shooting digital? Shows like Chuck and The Walking Dead have that softer, grainier look to them as compared to shows shot on 35mm (or high resolution digital). I can imagine that the use of 16mm on The Walking Dead is purposeful, as it looks to my eye as though digital grain enhancement has been used to accentuate the grain. Perhaps I'm wrong and it's a higher ISO film stock in use (it is a pretty dark show) but it looks like digital processing to me, reminiscent of the processing used on the film Sideways to give a sort of dated, low budget 70's look to the film. Any other recent productions you can think of shot on 16mm/Super16?
