I met Cora on the day we were to do a photoshoot together with hairdresser & make-up artist, Maria Osborne de Jonge. This photoshoot was set up both so I can practice my photography but also to practice my technique with stop-motion animation.
The shoot with Cora, between set up, Mia's work and then my work with Cora, it ended up being an 18 hour shoot for Cora, who was a good sport. Mia dyed Cora's hair two shades of dark purple on top of her fuscia dreads, with flowers as her inspiration, created a beautiful up-do. The song we were working with as inspiration, Flower, as per Cora's request, is a song from her first album Flourish.
|The flowers in the background basically grow there through out the stop-motion animation.|
I'll do a follow up blog later on when I have made more developments with the stop-motion animation's editing process.
