Please tell us a little about yourself…
I’ve been around for a while. I try to shoot my everyday life. I would like to sit on my favorite chair when I am an elderly man and show my life’s Lomography snaps to my future grandchildren. It would be great if they’d say: “You are not so old-fashioned. We all take analogue pictures”. That would make me think “The future is not so bad”.

How would you describe the LomoKino in 5 words?
Surprising – Moving – Pace – Kino Glaz – Amusing

What’s your favorite feature of the LomoKino and why?
There are lots of features I like. First of all, I love the design of the LomoKino – That little black plastic box is light and perfect to carry with you everywhere. It’s easy to use – Just pull it forward and move, people look at it and smile. But what I like most is the possibility of changing the aperture settings whilst shooting. You have to be fast (I must try it a little more) but it gives you lots of possibilities in all kinds of situations.

What LomoKino movie would you most like to shoot?
I will record the first steps of my child. That is for sure.

If you could give the LomoKino to one other Director, who would it be?
Imagine a film by Spike Jonze using the LomoKino with an x-pro film and Lance Accord as director of photography. This would be a crazy game. David Lynch would do some bizarre movies with a black and white film. And imagine Dziga Vertov doing his still movies with the Lomokino. WOW!

On the other side, I would really like to see movies made by these 3 Lomographers:
Mini-warning: doing a picnic or a tea party dressing up like The Belle with her friends and Winnie The Pooh tea cups. That would be amazing to see her world through the LomoKino lens.
Susielomovitz: Because of her creativity. She would do a wonderful movie with this camera.
Stouf: As he is the master of new tipsters, he would create a new way of using the Lomokino. A Lomokino Rocket or something… I’m already waiting for his tipster article!

Do you have any advice for LomoKino newcomers?
Be fast, some things just happen once and you have to be ready.

Bringing analogue back to the movies with a bang in the 21st century, the LomoKino is a Lomography movie camera that shoots spectacular, creative movies on all kinds of 35mm film. Head to the Microsite, watch some Movies and begin your analogue movie-making journey today!

    @disdis just an idea (since your teasing me : ) ), how about filming with a digital camera what you see in the Lomokinoscope ? And if it's a negative, you invert it in your movie editing software?
