Digital Rev challenged Vincent Laforet to see what he could do with an old film still camera and a Lens Baby on the streets of Hong Kong.
Vincent Laforet on his experiences:
I’ve been thinking a lot lately. About everything. The business. Our “craft” and the economics and sustainability of what we do as creatives in this ever changing world. But that’s for a later post perhaps, and I always tend to think too much anyway…
A chance meeting with Kai and the folks at DigitalRev was made possible by a tweet, during what was originally meant to be a short connection between flights in Hong Kong that I decided to turn into a 3 day visit on my way back home from a job in Bali.
I can tell you it was terribly refreshing to shoot film. We had no plan. No script, no storyboards or teams of folks working on a crew. We didn’t even know where to go, nor have anything set up to shoot. This was my last day in Hong Kong and the only deadline was a flight at 11:45 p.m. that very evening. That gave us a healthy 4 hours to shoot 72 exposures on good old celluloid. No LCDs to “chimp” with (a term we use to describe the act of looking at a rear LCD and jumping up and down and showing your friends as you see a nice photo…)
