(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.
