Whether you choose to create experimental stop motion or fantastic montage movies, it’s possible with a LomoKino. We have prepared a step-by-step guide to get you started.

Scanning Your Film

Scanning your LomoKino film roll is easy to do using a backlit scanner and a DigitaLIZA 35mm Scanning Mask.

  1. Cut your LomoKino film roll into lengths which fit into a scanning mask such as the DigitaLIZA 35mm mask.
  2. Scan each of the lengths. Don’t color correct your LomoKino scans or at least keep the same scan settings throughout the film. This way you are more likely to get consistent results.
  3. When you have scanned each of the lengths, crop your scans into individual frames using an image editing program.
  4. Save each of your LomoKino frames as separate files. Remember to keep the same order and orientation when you scan the negatives – The best way to do this is save each movie frame as a 3-digit number such as 001, 002, 003, all the way to the end of the film.

With individual files for each of your frames, it’s easy to edit your scans into a movie using video editing software such as Windows Live Movie Maker or Imovie.

Bringing analogue back to the movies with a bang in the 21st century, the LomoKino is a Lomography movie camera that shoots spectacular, creative movies on all kinds of 35mm film. Head to the Microsite, watch some Movies and begin your analogue movie-making journey today!
