The first moon landing in 1969 is just one of the many events that we celebrate every July, and so to commemorate this historic occasion as well as to kickstart the month, we have this stop-motion film by mok!
With the use of dolls’ busts, cutouts, glow-in-the-dark stars, a set emulating the moon’s surface, and ultraviolet light, mok was able to create the super creative LomoKino movie “Sirens of Titan.” With music by MiNiVaN wrapping things up quite perfectly, it’s no surprise this film was selected as one of the winners of the Voyage to the Moon competition back in 2012! If you’re in the mood for something out-of-this world, then you should definitely check out this short film!
Here in the Lomography magazine we often venture to the community’s Movies section, where we’re able to stumble upon shorts that do not only depict interesting storylines but are also well-executed. The new Kino Stories series aims to put the well-deserved spotlight on these gems, so keep those creative juices flowing and tell us your story! Who knows, you just might get featured in an upcoming installment!
