From the LC-A to the LomoKino: Community LomoAmigo Jimmyhido

1

Right before the LomoKino, Yu-Sheng has already been creating mini analogue movies with his LC-A. A patient one, right? Definitely a lover of analogue!

Until the glorious analogue movie maker was launched and his dreams of filming the analogue way did come true. Come on and read more of Yu-Sheng or jimmyhido’s story as this week’s Community LomoKino LomoAmigo!

Location: Taipei

Tell us about yourself. What do you do for a living? What are your interests?

I’m one of the artists in the Treasure Hill Artist Village in Taipei. My works are near Conceptual Art or Action art. But my pay is most from film job or stage job. I have a studio, 2 Days Studio, to make my ideas come true.

How long have you been a Lomographer and how did you find out about the Community?

I join in the Lomo family in 2010. Because I met Jeansman in Taipei. He told me there are a lot of great photos and players and that I can upload limitless photos. When my inspiration is gone, I would watch Lomographeers who live in different countries to make new ideas.

Describe the LomoKino in five words.

Original. Tenuto. Speed. Documentary. Rolling.

How did you like shooting with the LomoKino?

Before Lomokino,I think continuous shooting is wonderful. To create a film movie is a dream of every creator. I let my LC-A become a movie maker. Films make the movie have aura. Now, I always put the Lomokino in my bag, and search small story in daily livings. Almost all people don’t oppose in front of the LomoKino.

What or who has inspired you to purchase and use the LomoKino?

One day, Jeansman told to me “ You don’t have to use the LC-A to make a movie anymore. There is a new camera which is easier.”

Girl + Guitar + Vespa

Any funny or strange encounters you’ve had with it?

In Taiwan, most people are shy. They don’t like to be shot. I think Lomokino is fresh to them. I can shoot them easily. I let strange pretty girls become my models, too.

If you could shoot any person alive or dead (or imaginary) with your LomoKino, who would it be and why?

I want to shoot Banksy. I love how Banksy shows the true world in the street.

Kindly share to us any LomoKino movie you love the most.

Man I Feel Like No Audio by -dakota-

Any future plans with your LomoKino? More shoots or a full-length film perhaps?

I plan to make a special efficacy movie which will be done with double exposures!

Your advice to future LomoKino users.

Keep more stories as you can.
