35mm Movie Lampshades: By the Light of the Silvery Film

35mm Movie Lampshades: By the Light of the Silvery Film
With the rise of digital projectors and 4K video, theaters that play movies recorded on 35 mm or 70 mm film are becoming more and more rare. I remember back when I was in college and running the campus film program lugging giant containers of film stock up to the projection booth and then waiting for our projectionist to splice on trailers and make sure the sprockets weren’t all torn up before showing the movie.

Lomography Diana Baby 110: This Lomo Fits in the Palm of Your Hand
What’s there not to love about Lomography and their various low-fi cameras. Sure, your smartphone probably has nicer resolution, but the analog flavor of these little cameras is hard to beat, even with Instagram’s retro effect filters.

DIY Laser-Cut Camera Snaps Artsy Photos
Have you ever thought about making your own camera? Well the KDS-POTO2 camera by Kit Man from Kit Da Studio definitely looks like it will do the job. It’s a fully functional camera, and kind of reminds me of those  Lomo camera kits that I’ve seen in the past.

Go From 2D to 3D With Global Wave’s Pic3D Lenticular Lens Film

Go From 2D to 3D With Global Wave’s Pic3D Lenticular Lens Film
I think the era of 3D was officially ushered in with the release of the Nintendo 3DS. Although the concept and technology has already been around for some time with 3D movies and 3D television, it was only then (in my opinion, at least) that 3D sort of made its way into mainstream technology since 3D was being offered, glasses-free, on the handheld video game console.

Green Screens: Not Just for Sci-Fi or Fantasy Movies Anymore

Green Screens: Not Just for Sci-Fi or Fantasy Movies Anymore
If Photoshopping believable images is hard work, I wonder how much more complicated it is to fabricate video. We’ve all seen green (or blue) screens in behind-the-scenes features for movies, but if you think that they’re only used for fantasy or science fiction films, think again.
