    Loving the fear on her face in this one. Almost as fearful as my dog is of me when I tell him off for barking at the cats…….okay …maybe not that fearful.

    Loving the whites of her eyes in this……..she must be a good actor.

  • That’s so true, I can see that sense of fear here for sure! Mahalia is actually an actor by trade, so the facial expressions and scenes played out perfectly with her. Even though at the time, we had no idea what we were actually shooting for. The story came together in the editing and post work stage. She’s brilliant mate.
