Welcome to FrockTalk, the web’s only costume-based movie review site. The goal of Frocktalk is to shed light on the magnificent artistry of costume design in motion pictures. Reviews on this site are written by working costume designers in the entertainment industry – people who know, better than anyone, what it takes to make it all happen. The focus of FrockTalk is not to comment on the big flashy costume dramas, but to call attention to the seemingly ordinary costume design work in film that silently and persuasively moves the audience toward understanding the characters. Costume design for motion pictures is an art form that deserves more recognition than it usually gets. Fancy, pretty costumes do not always equal effective, appropriate costumes. The art of the costume is in letting the audience know who the character is, before the actor even has a chance to open his mouth. Read on, and enjoy. ** CAUTION: ALL REVIEWS CONTAIN SPOILERS! **

Adventures in Costuming: Film Festival Juror & Trunk Show!

One satisfied customer:  the CAT MAT

One satisfied customer: the CAT MAT

Hello Frocktalkers!  Just here to let you know about a few things.  I have been asked to be a juror at a film festival this week, so I will MISS the CDG Awards on Thursday.  Do not fear.  Frocktalk correspondents Anthony and Sarah will be handling coverage of the event, and I can’t wait to hear their stories!  As part of the film festival I’m attending, I will screen Running Scared (2006), a film I designed, with Q & A afterward.  It should be fun!  Along those lines, I was recently interviewed by Chris at Clothesonfilm.com about the film, and you can read those interviews HERE and HERE.  Lastly, while I am away, there is a trunk show happening on Sunday in Glendale, and my wares will be peddled there.  More after the jump!

Fabrics used in the Cat Mat!  No "crazy cat lady" fabrics here, thanks.
