A big fan of films in general, this week's LomoKino LomoAmigo is in a saga of interesting movies produced the analogue way!
In this “saga” he has built, he definitely made a lot of friends in the Community. And along with this friendship comes a package of A+ LomoKino films! I’m sure you’ve heard the LomoKino film series called “Everybody Hates Goonies” and if you’ve had, then this guy is the one to look out for!

Tell us about yourself. What do you do for a living? What are your interests?
At the moment, I work as a warehouseman in a mall. It can be a bit tiring but I enjoy it a lot. In my spare time I like to read, listen to the music, and drink red beer! My interests are the Napoli football team, the West Ham United team, the girl with big eyes, Monty Python, Japanese cartoons as well but what I love the most are movies!
Describe the LomoKino in five words
Fun, fun, fun, fun and… did I say fun?
How did you like shooting with the LomoKino?
I’m not the kind of guy who always brings his LomoKino and let ideas flow when walking around; my LomoKino movies are always planned and outlined, maybe you wouldn’t think so.
What or who has inspired you to purchase and use the LomoKino?
As I’ve said, movies have always attracted me, they’re my passion and from the moment Lomography launched this camera allows me to make my own “films," it becamse a must-buy.
Any funny or strange encounters you’ve had with it?
To create my Lomo-saga, better known as “Everybody Hates Goonies," I’ve met and known many Lomography Community members, I want to thank them all: ironsymphony, ophelia, stepi, lookingthrough, cryboy, flashstalker and atria007 for hitting me down in those LomoKino movies.
See more from the “Everybody Hates Goonies” saga in here.
if you could shoot any person alive or dead (or imaginary) with your LomoKino, who would it be and why?
I’d like so much to add to my saga “Zinedine Zidane Hates Goonies," where I dance with my Materazzi jersey and then Zidane comes and hits me in the head just like what he did to Materazzi in the final match of the World Cup 2006.
Kindly share to us any LomoKino movie(s) you love the most.
Any future plans with your LomoKino? More shoots or a full-length film perhaps?
Will sure keep on developing my saga “Everybody Hates Goonies” and considering that in January I’ll be meeting artichekt, superlighter, othar, and gibri it won’t be too long until you see some more of it. I’m also doing a LomoKino movie along with kathepalacio. And of course the remake of the Goonies! Haha!
