LomoKino Director Interview: Satomi


We were amazed when we saw the first LomoKino movies from Satomi – Her films have real energy and emotion – Read on to see her great works so far and an interview with one talented LomoKino Director!

Name: Satomi Sugiyama
LomoHome: satomi

Please tell us a little about yourself…
I moved to L.A. from Japan 11 years ago to study film, and was introduced to Lomography by a friend at school. I started out with Holga and now, I own most of the Lomography cameras and my fridge is filled with many different kind of films, including some really rare ones.

How would you describe the LomoKino in 5 words?
New era in analogue Photography.

What’s your favorite feature of the LomoKino and why?
I just love everything about LomoKino. The concept is great, it’s like my dream come true. As a Lomographer/ former film student, LomoKino is sure a perfect camera for me! Lomography has taken analogue photography to an entire new level- Even though Lomokino a “movie camera,” it still uses the regular 35mm film, so we don’t have to worry about finding rare 8mm movie film or finding a lab to process the film.

What LomoKino movie would you most like to shoot?
Remake of “The cabinet of Dr. Caligari”!

If you could give the LomoKino to one other Director, who would it be?
Mmmm, I say Jean-Luc Godard. I’m sure he could’ve come up with something unique, and would love to see him make a movie, starring Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina!

Do you have any advice for LomoKino newcomers?
Keep turning, document the moments in your life, and be creative!

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!
