Full Name: José Lino Lanfranchi Junior
Lomography Username: Bermudas
Location: São Paulo
Tell us about yourself. What do you do for a living? What are your interests?
I’m a guitar player and song writer in Cabana Café and Bermudas, my project that unites music with lomographs. I also work as a movie-maker and video editor.. I love all types of art. The beauty, creativity and concept are what I like the most.
How long have you been a Lomographer and how did you find out about the Community?
Since 2011. A friend of mine, Caio Antunes, had a bunch of cameras and cool pics. At that time, I showed him some instagram pics, and he said "why don’t you go for the real thing?’. So I did.
Describe the LomoKino in five words.
It makes memories stand out.
How did you like shooting with the LomoKino?
It puts a natural filter on what you’re filming. The moment that is being captured is not going to look exactly how it is, it gets a new magical look, nostalgic and beautiful, just like our memories seem to be.
What or who has inspired you to purchase and use the LomoKino
I used to make movies with my Canon 7D, but the way they looked was boring me, every movie on Vimeo looks exactly the same… Then I bought my LCA+, and fell in love with it, so I decided to go analogue in my movies too,and I stepped into the LomoKino world.
Tell us about the experience of making a videoclip using just a LomoKino?
It was a challenge but it was also very fun! The shooting happened in Itú, a small city near to São Paulo and we did everything in just one day. For the clip I used 40 rolls of film. Some of them were Color Negatives ISO 100 and 400 and I also used some X-Pro Chrome 100. I had to work a lot in post-production, to organize and scan this mountain of films but in the end I really like the result!
Watch the videoclip of Ted Marengos Band. It was directed and edited by Zé using the LomoKino!
Any funny or strange encounters you’ve had with it?
Nothing special at all, just people saying – where did you find this old camera? Does it work? Is it from your grandpa?
If you could shoot any person alive or dead (or imaginary) with your LomoKino, who would it be and why?
Neither alive nor dead. It would be fun to shoot a person from the future so I could show how technology can be beaten up by ideas.
Kindly share a LomoKino movie you love the most.
PLEASE DON’T GO! For me is the best shot Lomo movie.
Any future plans with your LomoKino? More shoots or a full-length film perhaps?
Live concerts, more music videos, lomokinowall projection!
Your advice to future LomoKino users.
Don’t stop turning the crank, even if you think It’s over.
