Ever tried messing up and "destroying" your film to achieve a totally analogue effect? Look at what guicho-nunez did to his negatives before piecing it together to make a LomoKino movie!
What was your main inspiration for creating Linea Plana?
My main inspiration was death. I was really trying to explore it, to try to deal with all that comes after a loved one dies. At the time a close family member was dying so this is a way of exploring that concept.
How did you use to create those scratchy and stained effects in your movie? It’s totally analogue!
First I went to look for a magnifying glass, a needle and everything I thought could remove color out of the negative, and started scratching and adding chlorine, alcohol etc. – really it was part of the experimentation! Also I cut by half some of the negatives and used some tape to combine them and try to make some narrative sense out of it (it was really fun :D), and yes, all analogue!!
Can you share some tips for Lomographers who wish to add effects to their LomoKino movies?
Really the one big tip I could give is to take advantage of the low price of producing movies with this wonderful camera, so we can take the negatives and break them, burn them, scratch them, paint, etc., and do it, it`s all about losing fear of great shots and try to find the beauty in the destruction and reconstruction of the movie.
Any interesting or funny random moments that occurred while shooting?
Actually it was the first time we used the Lomokino and the first film loading was a big fail so we were shooting nothing untill we reallized that nothing was happening :S
