As this list would prove, the LomoKino has captured not only the hearts of analog filmmakers within the Lomography community, but also professionals outside of it. We’ve dug through our archive to present to you some of the best LomoKino music videos from all over the globe to have come to our attention.
“Water” by Beach Party
Filmed back in 2012 by Dylan Culhane, the music video for “Water” by Cape Town-based band Beach Party has the distinction of being the very first of its kind to be shot entirely with the LomoKino. The upbeat tune combined with the fun and gritty stills make for a clip that shows what a summer day out with friends really is about.
“Fireworks” by Echo Bloom
To create the music video for Echo Bloom’s “Fireworks,” filmmaker Gregg McNeil went through a painstaking process from pre- all the way to post-production stages. All the effort had been worth it, though, as the result is definitely one of the best crafted LomoKino music videos in existence.

“Rette Mich Wer Kann” by NÖRD
One of the most recent LomoKino music videos that we know of, the video for “Rette Mich Wer Kann” by the German band NÖRD absolutely impressed us with its exceptional execution. Amid all the random images of the band members goofing around and performing are scenes in which they sing synchronized perfectly with the audio.
“Want Your Love” by Simone Page Jones
Australia-based photographer Jo Duck filmed this short video, which he had described as a “Frankensteinian combination of music video/lighting test/happy accident.” Here, Simone not only stars in the video (channeling her inner Brigitte Bardot); she also created the song for it.

“여름은 (Summer)” by Hi to him (@hitohim)
Hailing from South Korea, Hi to him is an indie duo who had made used of the LomoKino in filming the music video for their song “여름은 (Summer)” “to express the warmth and analog feelings of the song.” In case you’re wondering, the song is about “old memories of past love inspired on a rainy day.”
