Shooting 6 ASA Film



I'm going to be playing around with Spectra film's Hi-Contrast B&W reversal--ASA 6.

For an indoor (kind of) set 20 wide by 10 deep, what kind of regular wattage are we talking about to make this work under normal conditions for an indoor scene?

I'm guessing between 2400 and 3200, but keep in mind that I'll be shooting at 16fps, for a speeded up silent film look. That means less light needed than 24fps, correct?

Yeah, I'll be metering of course, but I'm looking for a starting point.
