Are you passionate about analogue film and photography? Lucky you! Indie Street Film Festival and Lomography are teaming up to offer an amazing opportunity for you to not only show off your passion and skills but to also give you the chance to win 2 ALL ACCESS PASSES to the Indie Street Film Festival (happening this July 26-30 in Red Bank, NJ) AND a pretty sweet lil' Lomography LomoKino, too. We know those two prizes alone are enough to blow your film lovin' mind - but that's all: you'll also win the opportunity to serve as a guest LomoReporter for the festival, putting your new LomoKino to the test! Seriously, what could be a cooler setup?! "[Lomography and ISFF are] looking for some of the most unique photographers who are able to find a balance between cinema and still photographic styles, by using elements of classic and contemporary cinema such as wide angles, shallow depth of field or vivid colors. The opportunities and visual styles that qualify are endless as cinema varies to each interpretation, and has had many prevailing trends throughout history. Use your favorite films as inspiration, or study the techniques and be inspired by cinematic photographers like Gregory Crewdson. Remember, above all, what filmmakers are trying to do with their pictures is tell a compelling story." Sound like something up your alley? Read up on more of the contest rules here and remember the most important rule of them all: you gotta show us totally analogue and totally NOT digitally enhanced entries to be eligible! Act fast and get snappin' - the contest ends MONDAY JULY 10!
Just released this week on Vimeo, A Song Still Inside is a character driven drama that draws you in while quietly provoking suspense. The film is a gutsy emotional dissection of love submerged in our changing gender roles. It is wonderfully shot and acted...much congrats from IndieStreet to this successful directorial debut film from Gregory Collins. (starring Rodrigo Lopresti, Susan Highsmith, and Jayce Bartok) Purchase the film on Vimeo on Demand by clicking here:
Polish artist Pawel Kuczynski is one of our favorite satirical illustrators in the world. He offers a truly unique style and tackles many of the world's complex issues with his unique visions. From light hearted social media pieces to heavier human rights, he is an artist who makes his audience really think hard about the world and society they live in. These our are favorites to date, but you can check out his Facebook page here for more works from his ten years of creating illustrations.
On IndieStreet we love innovative environmental concepts, and we love cold beer!
