Wake up! Today’s Team Deakins Podcast forecast: costume designer Ruth E. Carter (MALCOLM X, BLACK PANTHER, LOVE & BASKETBALL). In an insightful conversation, Ruth shares how she integrated 3D printing into the design and production of costumes for BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER and how she collaborates with the visual effects department to augment her designs. Ruth also reveals how she intuits a director’s potential reaction to costume ideas based on how they themselves dress. Finally, we clarify what are and are not a costume designer’s responsibilities, and Ruth advocates for the increased participation of the costume designer in pre-production and post-production.
You won’t regret listening to this episode, “and that’s the double truth, Ruth!”
