WHAT THE HELL?
Lomography is a camera movement founded in 1992 by a group of Viennese students after they discovered the unique pictures which can be captured with the Lomo Compak LC-A (Russian camera). They have grown a large online community, which share images and techniques internationally and promote experimentation and play within the film media. It is an analog movement.
CATERPILLAR STOP MOTION:
BigPlus joined forces with the Lomo London team and directed 20 of their UK-based Lomographers armed with LC-A 35mm camera to weave through the streets of Soho to form a practical workshop. Our concept was to produce an organic stop- motion video as each person snapped a photo they went and joined the back of the queue.
Once the photos were processed and digitised we edited them together to produce a video utilising each of the different film stocks loaded in the cameras. We mixed these with a reel of Super 8mm footage.
The video was an instant hit and went viral on the first day with over 60,000 views on YouTube.
ASHMOLEAN – FRIDAY NIGHT IN A MUSEUM:
Focusing on analog photography, The Ashmolean enticed guests to join a Lomo Caterpillar a continuous photo-chain, strike a pose in their gallery and try out some innovative analogue techniques.
We were provided the photographs in order to edit a stop motion film together weaving less than 500 images taken from the Friday Live event.
