Seeking advice about 4K Arriraw to 35mm Film output

David Hollander
 

Hi all

I have an upcoming project where I will be shooting Open Gate Arriraw with an Alexa Mini and Super Baltars that will be output to 35mm film by Fotokem.  The film is meant to evoke Visconti's Ludwig or The Leopard (FYI).
I have done this once before a few years ago and did not do anything special, but the subject of that film was Supermacro shots of a Rolex watch face so there were no skin tones or greenery, which this film will feature prominently.
I wondered if anyone here has previous experience with this workflow and if they had any words of advice or relevant information that they could share -- camera settings, LUTs, exposure?

Thanks in advance

If you haven't done so already, a conversation with Fotokem is a good
place to start. They have seen some really good and really awful stuff
brought in for film out work, and know better than most what works well,
works so-so, and what doesn't.

Yes I have reached out to Fotokem for information.
Hoping the CML hive mind has some useful info as well!
