When we think of film, and often when we reward a film, we focus on and think about the actors, directors, and writers being the ones who bring a world to life, and take it from an idea to a reality. But less often recognized is the work of costume designers, makeup artists, hairdressers, special effects artists, set designers and those who work on the craft behind the film. They are the ones who build the world that is brought to life on screen, who curate the physicality of the characters, and communicate details that tell the story whether we notice them or not. The work of costume designers can illustrate the personality or growth of a character, while also giving the viewers information about the time period, socioeconomic class, and location of the characters in the story being told. The creation of the body and the space that the body is in is essential to setting the stage of the story being told. In this episode special guests FF2 contributor Roza Melkumyan, and Media Associate, Nicole Ackmanwe join us to highlight the work of costume designers in the film industry and just how important it is to recognize the work that is often performed by women behind the scenes, and often overlooked by audiences and critics.
