Conversation with Michael Wilkinson: Superman—Costuming an Icon
Michael Wilkinson, 2014 Academy Award® nominee in costume design, appears in conversation with Bobi Garland, director of Historic Western Costume Company's Research Library and Costume Archive. Explore the design and cutting-edge technology used to create the superman of the 21st century. Wilkinson's collaboration with film director Zack Snyder and costume designer James Acheson reignited a 75-year-old comic superhero.
A native Australian, Wilkinson enjoyed a successful career in costume design for opera and theater before venturing into film, including such projects as American Splendor, American Hustle, and the upcoming Noah. The conversation is followed by a unique opportunity to view examples of Wilkinson's costume designs, loaned by Warner Bros. exclusively for the evening.
