Getting back, Stills from Tyler MacIntyre’s ‘Shinny’

Just before shooting this I spent about a week in bed with some kind of weird flu… well maybe it was cancer? aids?… hmm cancer-aids? Yeah… I’ll stop here, we know where this is headed. ¬†Anyway, here are the shots from 4 weeks ago. I struggled quite a bit with these, my D7000 is backfocusing a silly amount, with some tinkering on the AF-fine tuning it’ll work until I get it serviced. I’m not tying to blame my gear here, I actually found the challenge gave me some positive pressure. I’m really far too proud to let something like this prevent me from taking a decent shot. I ended up putting more energy and focus into getting a good image than I have in a very long time. They’re not my best shots, but I enjoyed taking them. Oh… well, it’d be a little self serving if I just talked about myself and my own feelings and completely neglect the film maker here, so I guess I’ll break that habit. This was made by some old friends of mine, Tyler MacIntrye (director) and John Negropontes (Producer). These guys moved to LA a few years back to further their film educations at AFI. They’ve since finished their formal education and have been working both here in Canada and in the U.S. They were back in Edmonton at the beginning of the year to shoot a short Canadiana film called ‘Shinny’. I wont say much about it as it has yet to be cut and released, but if you want to hear more about these guys, check out the two part episode of Robocop Vs The Nazis (shameless plug) Tyler MacIntyre and John Negropontes | Robocop Vs The Nazis
