‘From The Hill’
‘From The Hill I Can See Everything That Happened To Us Here’ – Neon Eye Films
Grace, Annabelle, Thomas, Eliot and Susanna are five young adults living in the beautiful and ancient, yet mercurial and drunk city of Edinburgh. They waste away hours in clubs and bars and sleep away the daylight in expensive flats. To be young, rich, beautiful and free is all we hope for …
And yet, after the death of their friend Clinton, a shocking start to the film that sends ripples through the remaining storyline, existential angst crawls out of the woodwork like worms. The bonds of their friendship and the bounds of their sanity begin to deteriorate, with the express help of the beautiful, Machiavellian main character, Grace.
I was head costume designer on this full length feature film. I was in charge of organising the team, looked after petty cash, and created budgets, call sheets and schedules. I made sure these schedules were followed and overall monitored the day to day running of the department. As the costume designer for the production I researched and designed for all the characters. I also sourced appropriate clothing from high street and charity shops keeping within the budget. On set I dressed the actors, helped with set dressing and kept notes on the costumes for continuity checks.
