Dressing Up for DV

Finally, as with all movie shoots, you must pay attention to the problems that costumes can cause for the camera. Shiny jewelry, slick hair, metallic fabrics, and patent leather can reflect light into the lens. Certain hats and hairstyles may cast awkward shadows over the faces of the actors. Some costumes may clank or rustle as the actors move, creating noises that make a crucial line of dialogue inaudible. Most important, pay close attention to the colors and patterns of the clothing your actors choose to wear.


Choosing Costumes

The costumes in this movie were chosen to look best in black and white. A dark suit was rejected for one with medium gray tones and no distinct weave. The woman’s blouse includes large roses in sharp contrast to the black cloth.
