I have some advice for costume people. Don't design a low budget feature. Only design if you have a budget of about £2million and have a team of about 20 people.
I'm designing a feature film. I haven't slept properly in 2 weeks. I'm incredibly stressed out (however my cool calm exterior remains intact). I don't know if i'm doing a good job or the director is happy. I've had no complaints from cast yet. I can't drive anywhere so it's an everyday stress figuring out how to get into work and how to carry everything into work. My budget is tiny and most of the main cast have 3 costume changes. I can barely afford all their stuff. Then they threw in loads of uniforms to hire. My brain is going to explode!
The cast are all lovely thank god.
Today we had a new character starting who they only cast last night at about 8pm. All I have to say is thank goodness he was happy to wear his own suit for the first day.
My assistant got arrested today because I called her while she was driving. I feel so incredibly guilty.
And as if work wasn't stressful enough i'm having problems with a friend of mine from uni who sent me an incredibly rude email considering I hadn't spoken to her in a month. I sent a rather abrupt email back and she replied with a sob story excuse email. I am so angry about it but I don't have the time to properly sort it out.
One good thing that has happened recently is that I brought a memory foam orthopedic mattress so my back doesn't hurt anymore! It's incredible I recommend it to anyone with bad back.
