What film does Gregory Crewdson use?

I am interested in finding out what film Gregory Crewdson uses to make the surreal "one frame movie" images he makes. I know about how he makes them - with lots of assistants etc - but not the technical details such as film type, I think he uses 8x10, developing, etc...
