The 'mise en scène' is a French expression that means "placing on stage", and refers to the arrangement of everything that appears in the frame: actors, lighting, décor, props, camerwork and costume. It is a common term used in filmmaking and theater, and it encompasses all of the elements needed to compose within the visual frame. Learning how it works is essential to every filmmaker.

Earlier this year we were chuffed to launch a very memorable type of 35mm film: the Lomography Color Negative F²/400. We had recovered it from the last ever supply of an Italian filmmaker, and stocked it for seven years in special conditions. Much sought after for the film's nostalgic aesthetic, beautiful blue tones, with hints of X-Pro character, the F²/400 35mm rolls flew off our shelves like hotcakes – and rapidly went out of stock worldwide.
