Kino Stories: ‘Shadow Play’ by maria_vlachou

2014-04-01 1

Our featured LomoKino flick of the day is not only entertaining but educational, too!

Video by maria_vlachou. Link to the video’s page in the community here.

Shadow Play” is a work by *maria_vlachou* of Kastoria, Greece that was filmed entirely in black and white using Ilford XP2 films. With the use of shadow puppets, she depicts a well-known tale of Karagiozis, a fictional character of Greek folklore, called “Alexander the Great and the Accursed Snake.” Now, at this day and age, this style is something we definitely don’t see everyda!

Here in the Lomography magazine we often venture to the community’s Movies section, where we’re able to stumble upon shorts that do not only depict interesting storylines but are also well-executed. The new Kino Stories series aims to put the well-deserved spotlight on these gems, so keep those creative juices flowing and tell us your story! Who knows, you just might get featured in an upcoming installment!

    Polina Washington and Her Deep, Dark Exposures

    For experimental Lomographers, the route to unpredictable and strangely charming images is through multiple exposures and film soaking. We couldn't help but wonder about Polina Washington's secret brew: somehow, her photos emit the haunting, magical, and mysterious effects that we can only dream of.

    The Infallible Electric Eye

    By far the oddest-looking camera I own, the Electric Eye is an auto-exposure viewfinder camera made by Bell & Howell in the late 1950s. I picked one up online and ended up with another one, that came with a very cool, retro looking carrying case, from my grandfather. It took a little while to try these two out but after running some film I found that this camera is a lot of fun to shoot with.
