Squint/Opera worked alongside exhibition designers Casson Mann to create a series of dramatic animated film installations for Hollywood Costume, the V&A’s major autumn exhibition. Exploring the central role of costume design as an essential tool of cinema storytelling, the exhibition has gathered together over one hundred of the most iconic costumes.

 

Squint/Opera has weaved the different narratives together using a rich selection of montages, film clips and projections to tell the stories behind the exhibits and set them firmly in context. The installations include a deconstructed Indiana Jones costume set and an animated table explaining the design process for Ocean's 11 costumes placed amongst a vortex of quotes. A series of creative arrangements present dialogues between costumes designers, actors and directors.

The exhibition runs to 27th January 2013.
