Have you ever had a roll of 35mm film that did not turn out well? Now is your chance to use it! (Or take some shots of different textures.) These are great for your Christmas tree or to put anywhere as decoration.
All you need:
- a string of christmas lights (white or coloured)
- some empty film canisters with lids (the opaque white ones)
- and some film
- Take your roll of developed film and cut it to fit inside the film canister (I counted 20 sprocket holes)
- Poke a hole through the lid of the canister (I used a screw driver and a hammer)
- Put the cut film into the canister, position it where you want (it should stay in place)
- Put the light through the lid and then put it on the canister
- Do the same thing for the rest of the lights
- Plug in and enjoy!
A great way to recycle unused film canisters and film that didn’t turn out as expected.
(You can also scan your film so you can still make copies of it if you ever want to).

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!

Dora Kontha makes the familiar worthy of a tribute. She frames icy weather or glinting water so that it looks boundless, more than a spread of pretty blue. Analog photography, her medium of choice, makes these everyday sights as intimate as memory itself.
