Where: Corfu When: Summer 2013 Who: Produced and directed by Kaya George www.kayageorge.com and me Talulah Blue
Not long after making a matching bra top and high waisted shorts from a 1950's pattern I got a call from Kaya George telling me she would be spending the summer in Corfu, and as I would be visiting she wanted to do some filming.
I put together the outfit I made for filming, and she had brought along a vintage dress and some other bits..
We experimented with a GoPro in the sea, but unfortunately it was being temperamental, so we didn't get and footage - one to save for next time!
View from our yacht, and by yacht I mean pedalo!
Kaya had some ideas for a fashion based film, so we made the most of the areas we had seen while bombing up and down the mouton roads in the car.
The Director: Kaya George. Togged up and ready to go www.kayageorge.com . With her amazing waterproof camera - Ok it's a plastic bag!
I get a call from Kaya demanding we do a video immediately - it's snowing, and with British weather it's so changeable you have to get in there quick. Luckily it stayed for a few days, and she managed to get up from London without being stranded.
So I think, it'll be cold, but it'll be worth it! Little did I know what I was letting myself in for - sitting a tight third after underwater photo shoots and performing on three hours sleep 5 days running for F1, this is the most horrible thing I have done.
As it was a good chance for a Christmas showreel I put together a winter headdress the night before with some bits I had been saving for an idea I had.
'Smile and look pretty, smile and look pretty .... and it will all be over soon!'
So ... my feet froze first, then my body and then my hands.
In between being in pain, slipping, running into trees and being attacked by twigs we got some really sweet footage, and made two videos from it.
After that we all went for the biggest, fattest roast dinner.
Amazing day out - but not one I am keen to repeat!
With my silk fans above, where Kaya decides standing in a freezing stream would be a great idea. Yep thanks! .... and thanks for the fab videos, I am very happy with them.
