We're not even officially opened yet, but that didn't stop us at the Lomography Gallery Store Austin from throwing a warehouse party in our cave of an unfinished space to properly welcome LomoKino to the Lone Star State!
LomoKino was welcomed into the open arms of Austin with a little help from popcorn, candy, old fashioned sodas, open bar, delicious hotdogs from Austin’s very own Frank, a workshop and competitive game to boot! Over 60 local Lomographers braved the chilly weather to get their hands on the revolutionary movie-making LomoKino!
Once the workshop was complete, everyone took turns shooting with the LomoKino, in what will surely make for an interesting group-made short film to add to the books. And what started as an innocent game of Action/Cut (a-la red-light green-light), turned into a vary competitive race in the hopes of winning a 3-pack of our beautiful 200 iso Xpro film… perfect for using in the LomoKino!
Congratulations to Chris who won out of our three finalists… only to be the best sport EVER and split his 3-pack of film so they could all try out the film! High five Chris!!!
As the night wore on, a BMX bike was brought out for some action LomoKino movie-making… and since we’re in an empty space, we didn’t have to worry about anything getting broken! Lomography Gallery Store Austin for the WIN!
LomoKino rolls and film from the red carpet are on their merry way to the lab, so keep your eyes peeled for more photos to come, not to mention Austin’s very first group-short with the LomoKino!
