New York, NY—The Lomographic Society introduced their first 16mm motion film for analog filmmakers—LomoChrome Purple 16mm film. Once exclusive to LomoChrome Purple and Turquoise 35mm and 120 films, it’s now possible to shoot 16mm movies with the same color transformations. The 16mm color negative motion film delivers a color shift ranging from soft purples to rich emerald greens.
Recently used in Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom and television shows like The Walking Dead, 16mm film is experiencing newfound popularity among filmmakers for its grainy, cinematic look. LomoChrome Purple 16mm motion film captures a similar gritty aesthetic, with unique color transformations. The film is an option for experimental films, documentaries and commercials. It works with most standard 16 and Super 16 cameras and can be processed at any lab equipped to develop color negative 16mm film.
The Lomographic Society has made limited quantities of LomoChrome Purple 16mm motion film available exclusively through Lomography. “In keeping with our goal to keep analog photography and filmmaking alive, we will be releasing many more new and experimental films in the near future,” the company announced. “We’re devoted to continually adding new and exciting films to our ever-expanding collection. Both from the Lomography production line and partnering together with likeminded companies.
