    That's a hugely broad question...

    There are a variety of options.

    Personally I prefer Fuji Neopan 400 in 35mm to Kodak Tri-X, TMax 400 and Delta 400.

    Tmax or Delta 400 are both superb films and can cope with a wide variety of lighting conditions.

    I see, I guess I could use some help, I'm not sure what I want and what films to go after. If you could maybe ask me questions on what I want out of my film.

    Seems like a consumer film of any kind is a good candidate. You are basically saying your subject will be in varying conditions with no specific lighting control.

    Stressing about a film only makes sense when you know what you are shooting and the condition the subject is going to be under. In your type of scenario, film will be the least affecting factor. Perhaps except for an extreme film like Kodak Ektar. It's very contrasty and saturated. If you like that kind of look, fine. If not, not.
    Develop, stop, fix.... wait.... where's my film?
