To create the Oscar-nominated costumes for "The Artist," designer Mark Bridges had to think in both color and black and white.
NEOSHO, Mo. (AP) — A man opened fire in the sanctuary of a southwestern Missouri church yesterday, killing the pastor and two worshippers and wounding several others, authorities said.
"Part of my job is to create a reality for the actors, too, and some of the choices in colors and things liven up the scene and make it very vital for them while they're acting as well," said Bridges, who's already won awards from the Broadcast Film Critics Association and the British Academy of Film and Television Arts for his work on the film. "That's why it's not all in black and white or gray scale."
"Things that you wouldn't notice in color suddenly showed up when it became black and white," he said. "A simple beaded flapper dress suddenly became maternity wear."
