Quickie Tipster: Remake A Movie

A lot of us Lomographers find inspiration and artistic comfort in the fantastic world of movies. Art movies, romcoms, love, blood, nature. We look at ourselves from the sofa and we are fascinated. It is us we find fascinating. Why not use that? Recycle someone else's inspiration.

Looking at movies make you think of them. You see the world through a 16:9 frame. What fits where, who would look good in what role. Why not use this to make a little series of photos?

Choose a movie you want to “Swede”. To “swede” is to re make a movie, only one take per scene, with a very low budget and only use the most important scenes from it. Lets bring this into the Lomo world! Put on that old wig and be the star of Lost in Translation, pop on those glasses and become Ray. Go wild. If it looks tacky but interesting, you’re on the right track. Use any analogue camera to get that plastic feeling.
