Description: Actors often say they only really assume the identity of a character when they have donned the costumes painstakingly tailored by their costume designer. Colleen Atwood, one of the subjects of this volume, went into unbelievable detail to effect authenticity on her costumes for Public Enemies, right down to using vintage clothes and recreating hats from 1930s Chicago. In Nine, she moved to mid-sixties Italy and the world of a Fellini-style film director. That's not to mention the more fantastical designs for Tim Burton films like Edward Scissorhands and Sleepy Hollow. The attention to detail, imagination, flair and range of these designers will be explored in this volume along with the more practical elements of working with budgets, costume teams, production designers, actors and directors. As well as Atwood, other designers that will be featured include multiple Oscar winner Sandy Powell, Albert Wolsky, Jacqueline Durran, Catherine Martin, Milena Cananero, Alexandra Byrne and Ann Roth.Discussions with the world's most notable filmmakers, giving insights into professional practice, working relationships, and influencesSidebars featuring practical advice on topics that filmmakers can apply to their own workInterview-based format with perspectives from the greats appeals to non-practitioner film lovers
