Lomography Caterpillar stop motion film!

42

Stop-Motion videos are awesome, but they are even more awesome when shot with an LC-A+ and a mix of different 35mm films!

One overcast Sunday last August, a group of 20 lomographers gathered single file in front of the store to be part of the our first ever Lomo caterpillar/matrix event! All were armed with LC-A+ cameras and a mélange of different film types – Lomography colour negative, Xpro slide and redscale – all shot in no particular order. The human caterpillar queue snaked down from the shop, through Carnaby Street and finished off at the Golden Square, Soho for some awesome jumps, yo-yoing and spinning matrix shots!

The result? A kick-ass stop-motion video made with nearly 2,000 separate images and 2 reels of 8mm B&W film rammed into a 2:54minute video. If this doesn’t inspire, we don’t know what will!

Check out the video!
