Through this course I’ve discovered my love of film and photography combined together. I love creating a video to go alongside the photos. Hope you enjoy it. The Magic Gemstone
Ilona has been ill with m.e an invisible illness that casts her world in black and white of pain and misery. Then one day her sister brings her a strange, beautiful gemstone she has found in their garden. It seems normal by day but when night comes it brings her world to life with a stunning light display. But it’s not just light, it shines magic into her life and by the time the night is over the stone it’s soul and power has brought Ilona’s world to life and in colour. I chose to shoot the first photos in black and white to go with Ilonas story, a world of black and white, no colour therefore when the colour is introduced it is even more powerful and symbolic. By the end the surroundings are once again full of colour for Ilona.
