Iconic costumes, iconic design
We worked alongside exhibition designers Casson Mann and curator Deborah Nadoolman Landis to create a series of animated film installations for the V&A’s 2012 Hollywood Costume exhibition. The exhibition gathered together over one hundred iconic film costumes to explore the role of costume design as a tool in cinematic storytelling. We won the DRUM award for best digital design in recognition of our work on the project.
Our role was to produce a selection of montages, film clips and projections to tell the stories behind the exhibits and set them firmly in context. We worked on nine exhibits, with the aim of creating a unifying concept and introducing a real playfulness to each one.
The installations include a deconstructed Indiana Jones costume set and an animated table explaining the costume design process for Ocean's 11. Others explored dialogues between costumes designers, actors and directors. The exhibition received critical acclaim and was also showcased at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
