Final Research – Costumes and Lighting

Finally the last research I will be doing is looking into costume and lighting.

Costumes help us see who and what the character is into and helps us learn more about their role in the film. Below are two classic costume designs that are known for their style, and we instantly recognise who they are for it, e.g. the Addams family for wearing dark gothic clothing with lots of stripes.

Lighting sets the mood for the scene and makes the audience feel safe, invited or even lost.

Here’s a table below showing the different atmospheres it can create:
