She also offer a bespoke service whereby she can custom-make items or create custom designs to make something a little more special and unique. By crowdfunding, Sera will have the opportunity to start printing her fabric locally in South Africa, instead of in the USA.”

Seven Steps: A Documentary Portrait of Taliep Petersen. (www.thundafund.com/sevensteps)

“The Seven Steps, refers to the iconic Seven Steps of Stone located at the heart of District Six, birthplace of one of South Africa’s greatest musical icons, Taliep Petersen. Tragically, Taliep Petersen’s was found dead on December 16, 2006. While the media has scrutinized every aspect of his heinous murder, little attention has been paid to his illustrious life. To honour this multi-faceted artist, Seven Steps will explore seven different personas of the man. Tapping into this living memory the documentary will honour the creative spirit of our subject matter by creating an artistic creative exposé, using the medium of Dance Film Documentary.”
