Emma Allen is a special effect artist that enrolled into a special voyage to celebrate art and life. She managed to create a wonderful video using stop-motion techniques and advanced face painting, depicting a beautiful story of a woman getting old, dying and ultimately reincarnating into a superb animal. According to Emma, she used 4000+ frames (portraits) in order to create the video and it took her 5 days to complete the project. Enjoy & share
An animated self-portrait exploring the idea of rebirth and illustrating the transfer of energy from one incarnation to another. I painted this stop frame animation on myself over 5 days, using some face paints, a mirror and a camera.
