Meet the BIG LomoKino Rumble Finalist #8: kostasmandilas

This short film will inspire you to pick up a deck! See skateboarding in a truly analogue style – through the vision of our BIG LomoKino Rumble finalist, kostasmandilas.

Joy Voyage by kostasmandilas

What inspired you to create this movie, Joy Voyage?
My biggest inspiration for the movie was the city i live Athens, and the people who live in it. Athens is a big city with an architectural anarchy and pretty much a grey scene, although everyone of us is looking for a joy voyage, a tool that make us happy and forget about the bad things, in this case is skateboarding. Skateboarding is the best way to explore and use the city no matter the terrain. I wanted to show the diversity that skatebording gives make something beautifull out of something ugly.

If you win the prize money, what would be the concept for your next LomoKino movie?
It will be a 30 minute film about people who live in big cities that they are so close but in the same time so far from each other.

What do you like best about the LomoKino?
The best thing about the Lomokino is that its fully manual, with film, and so easy to develop.

    Caleb Savage: Into the Darkroom, Out in the Open

    When asked to recall the moment they first became truly interested in photography, most photographers would remember the magical feeling of picking up a hand-me-down or secondhand camera, the thrill of shooting an entire roll through, and the elation upon seeing and holding their first ever set of photographs. Caleb Savage, however, had quite a unique experience. At 10 years old, he had his first taste of working in the darkroom making prints at Boy Scout camp, thereby beginning a more than a decade-long affinity with photography.

    The World According to Herr Willie: Lake Toba

    Talking about the creation of the world. A big bang, meteors hitting planets, ice age and tectonic breakdancing. The world is an incredible start up and the landscapes, that were created through the elements and time. Sometimes your eyes can still see this amazing process in a timelapse. Such a mystical place is Lake Toba in North Sumatra. Or as the locals call it: Danau Toba.

    The Art of Picture Taking: An Interview with Filmmaker Catherine Dauphin

    At the time of its inception, photography was considered less a fine art and more a scientific method of reproduction. But anyone who has dabbled in the craft will argue otherwise; that there consists a very specific artistry in the photographic medium. We spoke with Luxembourg-based filmmaker Catherine Dauphin about her thoughts on this wonderful art form. Join us as she answers some of our questions about film, photography, and her short film titled "The Art of Picture Taking."
