‘A Foreign God’
The story of a vulnerable man’s struggle to cling onto his talisman, all consuming faith. The film follows Thomas, a homeless man, from self imposed solitude to crushing disillusionment as he battles with increasing interference to his belief. A lost soul wandering through the streets of Edinburgh, he searches for divine meaning and and renegotiates his position in society.
I ran the costume department for this film, my main responsibilities were designing and organising as well as being on set during filming. I worked with the director to achieve his creative vision and with a small team I designed the costumes for 14 characters, breaking down and distressing a number for the homeless characters. I was in charge of controlling a small budget so devised a budget plan for the film and with this sourced costume pieces.
