LomoKinographers, before shooting the films you've uploaded onto the Movies section, do you pre-visualize the sequence? How do you work, as directors? Do you meticulously map out your actor's every move or concoct on the spot in hopes what you capture will appear more natural?
For the perfectionist
I Don’t Like Anybody Else – LomoKino Music Video
We can just imagine the sort of pre-visualization that went into this LomoKino music video!
There are numerous tools to aid the director who has to have a good, solid idea of what the finished product will look like before setting out to shoot.
Storyboards, for instance, are the most popular of these. They can be basic visual aids, with stick figures marking the position of actors and noting the camera angle and proximity to the subject – if it’s an extreme close up or a wide shot – or, other times you’ll find they are finely drawn and colored works of art!

We ask, have you any storyboards, notes or doodles to show for your LomoKino productions?
And for those who “roll with the punches”
The title says it all! A dictionary definition of Undreamt: “Beyond what could be imagined; unimaginable”. This alludes to perhaps some premeditated thought though also the developed film being a pleasant surprise for the director!
Perhaps a photo or postcard taped to your vanity table mirror or some other artifact that you wake up to every day. Something simple that you don’t even register could be your inspiration, or perhaps ‘cause and effect’ overlap and your finished LomoKino film will become the inspiration in itself!
What inspires you? Where do you draw your creative energy from? A favorite LomoKino production perhaps?
