It just goes to show that you don’t always need complicated, high-end gear to create lovely videos!
It’s fairly old news, with the video released about a year ago, but it’s something we simply couldn’t pass up on! Theo Putzu, a filmmaker and photographer from Barcelona, has been able to create a music video for the dream-pop group Diverting Duo’s song “Outset” using only a Lomokino! On the video’s Vimeo page, Putzu revealed that he had used a total of 20 rolls of films, or an astounding 2,200 photos, to create the three minute-long lo-fi, dreamy music video!
Diverting Duo hails from Cagliari, Italy and is composed of Sara and Gianmarco. To describe their music, the duo wrote, “all you have to do is imagine a long warm reverb, some nice colours on a summer dusk and slow gentle music all mixed together with electronic drums.”
If you’re interested to see more of Putzu’s works, you might also want to see his multiple award-winning short film, “Paper Memories.” It’s a seven minute-long stop-motion video that made use of about 4,000 photographs, and is about an old man who embarks on a heartwarming journey through old letters and photos with his loved one.
