Last semester I was lucky enough to spend a weekend with Kathi George, a doll maker who specializes in making reborn dolls. Reborns are baby dolls that are known for being hyper realistic. They have soft hair, pink cheeks, blue veins and palms that a fortune teller could read.
Kathi was incredibly welcoming to me and we’ve kept in touch over these last few months. I’d like to share this mini documentary featuring Kathi, her sister (as well as doll making partner in crime) Julie and their dolls.
Some of this footage was obtained at a craft fair where Kathi and Julie vended their dolls, some was taken from interviews with Kathi in her studio.
The footage was shot on a DSLR camera and edited in Adobe Premier.
