The costume department has to track continuity with each characters wardrobe. Our film takes place over 5 days and we have to track what each actor is wearing in a scene. Each character is given a continuity sheet for each costume they wear. This sheet tracks what scenes they wear it in, what accessories go with it, and important notes.
Kimberly Freed is our wonderful Costume Designer. She found gorgeous vintage dresses, shoes, suits, hats, jewelry and other accessories for all our characters. The project has so many characters and her department did a spectacular job bringing the period to life. Kimberly is the type of person you will work with forever and ever.
While we were shooting the alley fight my vintage tie got caught in the gun another character was holding and ripped. It was destroyed and we still had many shots yet to complete. We did not have a duplicate tie as back-up. Kimberly grabbed it off my neck and said she would see what she could do. I figured we were doomed. It would be impossible to maintain continuity with that tie. It could not appear okay in one shot and destroyed in another. 15 minutes later Kimberly held up the newly restored tie. She had to pull it all apart and reshape it from the opposite end. She saved the day. When you watch the scene you can't tell.
Darrett Sanders (Louie) gets his tie fixed by Kimberly.
