Support LomoAmiga Nadirah Zakariya's Independent Film Project

2011-05-05 16

We love it when our LomoAmigos and LomoAmigas go on to do cool things. Check out this new project from Nadirah Zakariya and friends.

Here is information about the project, as written by Director Jessica Collins:

When You Leave The Earth is going to be short film about two sisters who retreat to a house in the woods to mourn the death of their mother. It will be a quiet, beautiful, sad film, and an honest, emotional depiction of the thoughts and fears we have concerning the mortality of the women in our own lives. We want to capture the loss these characters feel. To show the grief, emotions, questions, quiet moments, and ultimately see them finding strength in the fact that life is all around, in nature, other people, and in oneself.

Actual sisters will portray the sisters in the film and the entire crew will be female. The goal of the production is to create a finished film that reflects the intimate emotional experiences of everyone involved.

The cast and crew will spend a week in a cabin, gathering scenes, many that are planned, and some that will have to be discovered.

The money raised will go to renting the cabin, food for the crew, art & costumes, and post production needs, such as Post Sound, DVD pressing.

We are blessed to be working with very talented people!:

The Director of Photography is Nadirah Zakaryia:

She is an accomplished photographer, who is skilled in capturing people in their most elegant, and raw moments. Her dedication, and delicate sensitivities render images that must be seen and treasured.

The Actors are Ashley Fenton, and Megan Fenton:

They have had endless experience in commercial production, so this paired their inward and outward beauty makes them a perfect match to this simple but important story.

The Sound Designer is Amanda Beggs:

She started working professionally as a production sound mixer before she graduated with a B.F.A. in Film and Television, and a minor in Sound Design in 2008. Since then she has worked on many productions here in Los Angeles, and her skills are vital to the success of our movie.

The Production Designers are Erin Staub, and Liz Garner:

They basically are modern magic makers. You will have to watch our movie when we’re done to see what I mean, and go to their web sites!

The Art/Poster Designer is Emily Cox:

“Emily’s colorful, childlike, and enchanting world of wonder spills into every piece she creates.” (Design Sponge.) Her designs for our film will be posted soon, and those who will receive the limited edition poster should hold on to them for the future! Emily is definitely a treasure artist who has a strong career ahead.

Project location: Los Angeles, CA

Stay tuned for information on a solo gallery exhibition at the Lomography Gallery Store NYC-Gramercy from Nadirah!

    Trusty Bags for Trusty Cameras

    We spend copious amounts of time stalking camera forums and researching specifications that "hunter" seems a more fitting term than "collector." And yet, when the time comes to pack all this game—the new or thrillingly ancient cameras—we DIY padding on the spot. (Guilty of trying to avoid the unappealing gear bag from the department store.) Last year though we stocked up on camera bags that are as cool as they are protective. Here are some of them.

    From Experimental to Ordinary: LomoAmigo Martin Dietrich Tests the Minitar-1 Art Lens

    In order to escape the world of facts and figures, tax auditor Martin Dietrich discovered photography as his creative counterpart almost seven years ago. On a trip to Paris he fell in love with analog photography and the magic of film has been fascinating to him since then. But he also appreciates the benefits of digital photography. For Lomography he tested the Lomo LC-A Minitar-1 Art Lens on his Fuji X-Pro 1 camera. Check out Martin's photos and learn more about the founder of the popular Neoprime magazine.

    LomoAmigo: Courtney Barnett

    Australian singer-songwriter Courtney Barnett sings about the frustrations, disappointments and the mundane aspects of life in her own animated and sometimes Dylan-esque style. Her debut album "Sometimes I Sit and Think and Sometimes I Just Sit" was released this year and has been getting positive reviews. We tweeted about her new album and she responded to say that she loved Lomography. It was the perfect opportunity for a shoot and an interview.

    Spanish band Hinds formed in 2011 and in just 2 years have gone from playing for friends in a local restaurant to embarking on a huge world tour. We love their sound & enthusiasm for music so we gave them an LC-A+ & asked them to document their travels. We talked to drummer Amber about these shots.

    Stalking the City: Ricardo Lozano

    New York is an infinitely photographable city in spite—or because—of its innate chaos. And even when the medium is film, praised nowadays for the virtue of slowness, the photographer must keep up with the city’s pace. Ricardo Lozano, 35mm photographer and Lomography community member, managed to do it for the series OK Commuter, now a book by A Love Token Press.

    Afterimage: When Abstraction Meets Light Painting

    A flash here, a flicker there. An afterimage is an optical illusion and reoccurring phenomenon resulting from a brief exposure to a bright light source, such as a camera flash. What's even more fascinating than experiencing this illusion is discovering that your camera is able to mimic its effect! Check out these mysterious afterimage-like light paintings from our online community.
