Great idea Anthony.  I would vote for a high contrast color negative film
without the orange mask.

I was also just thinking that kodak might already make similar films to
these for motion picture printing.

There is a film (or used to be) for making a CRI, or Color Reversal
Intermediate.  The CRI becomes a duplicate negative in one step or printing.
Thus this is a "slide" film. It probably is low in contrast to protect the
info in the negative.

There is also negative stock for printing an "Interpositive". The
Interpositive is used to be printed again to make a duplicate negative, and
thus it is a negative film, but without the orange mask added as in the
original camera negative.

Unfortunately these films are probably balanced for tungsten illumination
and may be very slow in film speed.

Lastly, there was a Extachrome News Reel film that was designed low in
contrast for duplication.  I don't know if it's still manufactured. And if
so probably only in 16mm.

But we could ask Kodak?
