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! **

It’s multi-platform, so you can use it with your iphone, ipad, and computer, and everybody can share the same information simultaneously. It even features an AUTO script breakdown – saving you hours of tedious data entry. Of course, you might want to check for errors, but hey, anything that can save you time is a Godsend! You can try the upload for yourself by going to www.synconset.com and registering – it’s pretty fabulous. You don’t even need a set book anymore – everything you need is in the palm of your hand.  We are using it on this film and it has been amazing.  This technology is going to revolutionize the way we do business!!!
