Hi everyone,

I don't know if anyone has brought this up.
You can shoot (depending on how you plan on finishing) on kodak 7363 (hi-con
positive stock)
If you print basic black titles on white paper then light it (lightstand or
even put on a wall) the image will convert black to white and the other way

If yo plan on a digital transfer make sure your font is a decent size,
because correction in transfer is still kind of questionable.

If making a print you can either...

Hand process it
the reprint when you go to have your film printed should give you the
desired effect.
I will have to look more into it as I have not done it in a while, but it
worked quite well for me and I hope this is helpful.
