So you’re a fan of photokina and you can get yourself to Cologne, Germany, but you have no tickets to get into photokina 2012. Here’s your chance to win 2 tickets! Can’t make it to photokina because of geographical issues? No problem. You can win piggies too! But you better hope you know the circus and have a LomoKino on hand, because this rumble is about movies that are inspired by the circus!

Rediscover burlesque and silent movies and rejuvenate that magical world of the circus. You can be inspired by Charlie Chaplin’s slapstick, black and white humor or the picturesque burlesque. A simple clown character and a hilarious script-writing skill might even do. Anything goes as long as you got your inspiration from the extra-extraordinary circus life! So step right up, take that LomoKino and start recording! Camera, roll, action!

    This clip is a music video performed by my band "Old Gypsy Man's Hat". The song is called "Tobacco" and we wrote and recorded it ourselves :) The clip was inspired by the different costumes the actors wore in the silent films. Of course there is music in silent films too :) To ad some spice, I painted directily on the film, since in the early years of film making, there weren't any computers to add special effects :)
