We always admire excellence in costume design, and have worked for many stellar designers and their teams – but we have a particular soft spot for Colleen Atwood, and as Potterverse fans, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We are just thrilled that her work was recognized with an Academy Award last night – amazingly, a first Oscar win for any of the Harry Potter movies!
And we are looking forward to future projects of hers… (wink wink.)
The 19th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards nominated others we’ve worked with this past year such as JR Hawbaker for Man in the High Castle for Outstanding Fantasy Television Series (which we’ve mentioned previously was a fun and fascinating process to witness)…
But we are exceedingly glad to see the frequently-nominated, and often award-winning Alexandra Byrne’s CDGA win this year for Excellence in Fantasy Film for Doctor Strange – because we just have this feeling that one of her current projects will no doubt get some attention for costume design when it’s released in November 2017.
We love IDC’s place as a service industry for all of the amazing costumers out there – whether it’s the work we do locally in Toronto, across the country in Vancouver or LA, or something overseas. Everyone we see does their best, and does so whether or not any nominations are within sight. Congrats to everyone who survives their days in this crazy business!
We’re happy to be able to work in such a fascinating occupation, and especially with and for such accomplished and hardworking people – but we have to say – we DO feel a little tingle when it comes to projects we’ve had the pleasure to work on earning industry awards and some mantle decor. Congratulations!
