Costume Designer Gossip

NFTS | Dir. Hannah Renton | Essex & Buckinghamshire | July 2022

Set at the very end of the Elizabethan Era. In preparing for this short, I supervised two costume makers and a milliner, made some pieces myself, hired from The Royal Shakespeare Company, and sourced outliers at the last minute. I was also present on set and had a Costume Assistant to assist me at the beginning and end of the shoot - until now, when acting as Costume Designer I had always done so alone. I learnt a lot by managing a very small costume department.

Costume Designer The Ashes You Left Behind

In this black & white short, minimal costuming was required. However it was very important to capture two grieving parents in the aftermath of their daughter's funeral correctly.

Costume Designer Memories of Mummy and Daddy

NFTS | Dir. Johannes Magnus Aule | Marlow | March 2022 

This project taught me a lot about costuming for black & white, after a lot of collaboration with the cinematographer in pre-production I designed and sourced multiple costumes for three cast members. There were essentially two time periods - modern day, and a warped 'past' where I tried to mix a timeless and 50s style.

Costume Designer Scrap of Paper

PheonixWorksFilms | Dir. Victor De Almeida | London | February 2021 & February 2022 

With a year between the first and second batch of shooting, I learnt a lot about the importance of continuity on this short, as we were trying to match to our work of a year earlier.
