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! **

Sync On Set!


Hey Frocktalkers!  If you don’t know about Sync on Set yet, you really need to listen up.  It’s a cloud-based continuity system.  Use your computer, iPad, iPhone to track continuity, break down scripts, communicate with the department, share information, etc.  We used it on Insidious 2 and it was really great – we didn’t even need a set binder, kids – it was amazing.  They have an AUTOMATED SCRIPT BREAKDOWN (okay?!) and if that’s not enough for you, they offer free classes and tutorials.  Here’s more info!
