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!

    LomoAmigos Yougofirst Shoot With The LomoKino In Their New Snowboard Movie

    Are you ready for an adrenaline rush? A little while ago, we teamed up with the snowboard and film-making collective Yougofirst and gave them a LomoKino and some film rolls to play with. After a season of crazy riding, jumps and tricks, they have finished their latest movie HETEROTOPIA which features footage shot with our 35mm movie-maker. We had the chance to catch up with Vid and Matic from the collective about the new movie and their experiences shooting analogue on the slopes. It's also our pleasure to showcase the movie here!

    LomoAmigos: The Ting Tings Go Analogue!

    The Ting Tings are a musical duo from Manchester who have more pop hits than you can shake a stick at. They are most famous for their 2008 hit "That's Not My Name" which got even the stiffest of people shaking in their seats. The Ting Tings are back with a brand new album called Super Critical. They are big film fanatics (check out their website for proof) so we gave them a Sprocket Rocket Camera and a bunch of film to document their life in sunny IBIZA.
