Michael Wilkinson on Costume Designing, Zack Snyder, Watchmen & Batman vs. Superman
Come check out Michael Wilkinson's latest interview on Costume Designing.
Below are a few portions of the full interview (which is linked below):
• A bit of thoughts by Wilkinson on working with Directors:
"I feel like whenever I work with a different director there’s something I learn..."
"I could say the same thing about Zack Snyder. There’s a sense of trust that he has when we work together that builds a confidence in me and allows me to develop my ideas. With each director you learn something new and the combination of all those new things help you to grow as a costume designer."
• Wilkinson's process of Costume Design on Watchmen (2009) and the upcoming, tentatively titled Batman Vs Superman (2016):
“I feel like the process is similar. We dive into the source material and make sure that we have a firm knowledge of that. We make sure that we’re respecting the source material but then at the same time trust our intuition and imagination to take us into interesting areas. "
• The interview also included a bit about Batman Vs Superman's Production Designer, Patrick Tatopoulos (Dark City, Underworld: Evolution, Total Recall) :
“I’m pleased to work with Patrick,” remarks Michael Wilkinson. “He has so much creative energy and wonderful ideas.”
