Are you looking to give your analogue movies a gritty, vintage yet totally colorful look? Then say hello to LomoChrome Purple 16mm Motion Film! As recently used in films like Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, Todd Hayne’s Carol and Alex Ross Perry’s Queen of Earth, 16mm film is seeing a great resurgence amongst filmmakers and we’re happy to offer our very own.

On top of achieving a distinctly grainy, analogue look, LomoChrome Purple 16mm Motion Film transforms your footage with saturated and vibrant hues, just like the effects seen in our LomoChrome 35mm and 120mm films, creating captivating imagery as it shifts various colors into brilliant violet and emerald hues. This enchanting color negative motion film yields standout footage perfect for capturing the atmosphere of moody independent films and 1950s cinema and it works with most Standard 16 and Super 16 cameras. We’re very excited to be providing this experimental offering to creative filmmakers, but it’s only available in super limited quantities so if you or someone you know someone who shoots 16mm film, then be sure to spread the news. Head to our Online Shop to grab yours today!

The LomoChrome Metropolis is the first truly new color negative film to be released in years. Following the success and now legendary status of the LomoChrome Purple and LomoChrome Turquoise, this new emulsion will be available in 35 mm, 110, 120, and 16 mm. Drenching your photos in muted colors, poppy contrast, and desaturated tones, this film is dark, grungy, quite unlike anything you've seen before. Back us on Kickstarter and help us usher in a new era in film photography!

    Absolutely great idea; if you were to expand this to super 8 as well, I expect there would be a lot of interest as well!

    Wow, potentially could we see the same in a B&W stock?

    Would be great fun if it was in 25ft rolls perforated for standard 8 double run cameras.

    @trad69 you would need double more perforations for that.
