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! **

Producers Break it Down~

I thought you all would find this interesting.  It’s an article from this morning’s LA Times, a sit-down with four successful, hard-working Hollywood producers (Michael London, Gary Lucchesi, Marshall Herskovitz and Gale Ann Hurd).  They talk about the business, what makes it tick, and the current situation in which we find ourselves.  It is verrrrrrry interesting!


Some highlights:  1) Companies fear taking risks; 2) Everything really is about marketing; 3) …It’s really difficult now for creative people to get a movie made.  But read on – it’s fascinating to hear their point of view, and the article answers some of the questions that we below-the-line artists ask of each other, our agents, and the Universe at large.
