MiniMovies Are Back!

2011-06-29 139

Here is some news many of you will have been hoping for – Lomography MiniMovies are back! Read on for details on how to create fun cinematic clips from all your photos!

Credits: the-vnuk

We’ve had so many requests to re-introduce our MiniMovie feature that we just couldn’t refuse – So crack open a bag of popcorn because here it is folks, back and as fresh as the day it left! For those of you who aren’t familiar with them, MiniMovies allow you to produce fun cinematic moving images from and of your photos – Just click on one of your photos that you’d like to turn into a movie and hit the ‘Create MiniMovie’ tab above it to start directing your masterpiece – Check out this simple video guide on how to create your first movie:

Of course, MiniMovies lend themselves perfectly to photos you’ve taken with Multilens cameras such as the Supersampler, Actionsampler and Oktomat – But you can use the feature with any photo you like, so go on and experiment!

Post the links to your MiniMovies in the comments below, we can’t wait to see the cool movie ideas you guys come up with!

    This picture looks very nice and fresh, makes me wanna use my old action sampler camera again! It's so many effects you can do by moving yourself (or let your subject move) or just by moving the camera and shoot a still subject. It's also perfect with children who are always active!
