mom and me_2The wardrobe department is responsible for a huge part of the overall look of the film. Considering that films are generally about people and people are generally wearing clothing and taking into account that those people usually wear different clothes everyday, the costume design is a major component of your film. In light of all these things, you might want to give your costume designer some time to prepare… it’s just a thought. Melissa Wilson joins us to tell us about her experience working with the Wardrobe Department in both theatre and film.
