STK-ID 76802

FI12793.028 Ballet Adagio 1971 35mm print of original shooting. Labelled “For Opticals”. There was, in fact, minimal optical work done, the occasional adjustment of framing and in one instance, a speeding up to 24FPS for reasons of synch. This is a 5253 Colour reversal intermediate. This was film stock in use from the late 1950s until 1977. A very unsatisfactory stock – short life, and notoriously difficult for processing and timing.
