It Shines and Shakes and Laughs by Matthew Wade

Here's a film that was an official selection at the Slamdance Film Festival in 2009, Zero Film Festival L.A. and True West Cinema Festival in 2008. It Shines and Shakes and Laughs was made by Matthew Wade. He shot this on Super 8 mm color reversal stock. There's an easy unhinged nightmare quality to the film which ultimately turns into an expression of fear of domesticity, I think. That engagement ring against the clouds is my favorite shot.
