(Obviously "Tanky McOne-Shot" is a working title... hopefully.)

One year ago, Simon Riddell & I visited the Inchindown oil tanks in the Scottish highlands. Well, we're going back—this time to make a feature-length documentary.

the Inchindown oil tanks. When these tanks were built in 1938 they were apparently the largest underground man-built structures. Each tank measures 237 meters long, 9 meters wide, and 13.5 meters high. Being completely underground with no electricity, that’s one big container of black.

The goal is to build the world's largest darkroom inside the service tunnels, take a shot of the tanks on large format film, develop it, and print it (at a massive 127cm x 103cm size) all on location.

Currently, we have partnered with The Intrepid Camera co., EMULSIVE.org, 35MMC, Cool Film Club, Ag Photographic, the Sunny 16 Podcast, and Paterson to make this happen; but there are still a lot of costs we have to absorb.

Your suppory will not only help cover our base costs (about 1000 USD), but can help cover the time costs of editing and producing a full length documentary. Anything above that will go directly towards creating another documentary.

The film won't only include our photographic follies, but a tour of the massive tanks which aren't open to the public. And, all supporters will get a mention in the credits.

Listen to us talk about it on the Sunny 16 Podcast →

Aaaand, here are some quick videos of us getting into trouble the last trip:

We have a rough cut!
Great news, everyone—Simon and I have finished the rough cut for One Shot: Inchindown. At the moment we still need some more b-roll, the rights to some photos, color correction, a lot of audio clean-up, and a music score from Lucie Treacher.

We know it will be finished late September, by the latest, because we've agreed to a screening in association with Highland-based FLOW Photofest in October.

If you haven't donated, there's still time to do so (and get a "thanks" in the credits).

Stay tuned for some teasers, etc.

We have a scan of the negative! Here you go—the first official scan of the Tanky negative! We will be selling both digital and darkroom prints soon to help raise a little more funding for the time spent editing the ducumentary. Stay tuned!

Simon made it safely to France a couple of days ago. So, now we're hard at work editing our footage to make Tanky a reality. Hopefully we'll have another trailer or some teasers for you soon.

Also, someone (Simon) had to agree to put the documentary in a photography festival in SEPTEMBER... so, um... we have a hard deadline!

TANKY Productions is a go!!!!
