What Would You Like to Shoot With the LomoKino?

I still don't have the new LomoKino (Santa Clause, can you hear me?). I was brainstorming about the things, moments, people, and movies that I would want to shoot with it. Here are a few ideas that I came up with!

Personally, I’ve always been more interested in direction than interpretation; a matter of taste, I guess. The point is that the LomoKino opens up millions of possibilities. What would be awesome for me is to be able to record 25 seconds of any of these movies:

Some Like it Hot

This movie is perfect as it is, at least for me. I love B&W so I would never use colour film with it. I may use Earl Gray because I haven’t tested it yet, but nothing else. As I said, I love it as is.

The Wizard of Oz

I really think that this film completely marked a generation. Anyway, I’d love to film it using a Kodak Ektar to show some colours that already are awesome and bright.

Grease

My feet automatically react when any song from this movie is played. Who doesn’t want to belong to the Pink Ladies group?! Or ride in a car with Danny Zucko? Anyways, this time I’d choose the Lomography X-Pro Slide 200 because it would highlight the colour of the costumes and give it a great effect.

And as man doesn’t live by movies alone…

Elvis Presley

If I was there, nobody would hear him because of my screaming! What film would I use? I’m not sure. Perhaps the Tugsten Fuiji Sensia 400 expired (always with a focus). Indeed, barakalofi was the one who showed me this performance because as you may know she also loves this guy… and if you did not know here’s a proof:

Michael Jackson

And finally, to have a LomoKino here would have been super awesome…I would not change anything…anything at all.

In the meantime, among all of these imaginary projects I’ve got some more “probable” ones, such as filming the next family wedding, my cat, or her…

(Yes, I blame her for rediscovering this man at my age!)

What about you? What would you have filmed if you have had the chance?

Enter a new analogue dimension with the LomoKino. Lomography’s own 35mm analogue movie camera allows you to capture action and immortalize your story on film! Shoot 144 frames on any 35mm film and create your own cinematic masterpieces. Want to watch your movie the old-school way? We also offer the LomoKino and LomoKinoscope package!

    I just watched the JJ Abrams movies Super 8, in which a bunch of kids are making a zombie movie on super 8 film (among other things, there's also this thing with an escaped alien). I think it would be hilarious to get some friends together and make a zombie film like that with the lomokino (http://www.youtube.c(…)8Zd707Q3vD0). (This also reminds me of the webcomic Multiplex.com, in which the employees of a movie theatre are now making there own zombie flic, it's a fun comic, you might want to check it out.)
