Photographer Mark Janssen & director Mink Pinster joined forces in an intense collaboration to create a fairylike stop motion video. Mark Janssen is specialized in staged photography, preferably with a present ominous layer. Together with Mink Pinster and his amazing crew, Mark's photography is brought to life.
Inspired by the song 'Still life' by the dutch band 'DI-RECT' they wrote a surrealistic plot in which the hair of a beautiful young lady takes control over her senses. Sigrid ten Napel, put down an extraordinary performance, posing and acting more than 32 hrs to shoot over 3000 photos. Set designer Annelot de Regt and international hair & make-up artist Dennis Micheal blew frame by frame life into the hair of the model and created a surrealistic world in which all senses are stimulated. Accomplishing big non-commissioned projects is an important aspect of Mark Janssen's work. Combining real acting with stop motion photography was a new challenge, which resulted in this tasteful video.
