Portfolio, Practice Based, costume, film


This practice based output consists of a body of costume designs created by Emma Renhard for the original British fiction feature film Polterheist (2018). Renhard’s costumes created an original visual language for this film about gangsters, missing money and a physic medium. The costume design was produced on a budget of around £7K, within an overall production budget of £70K, and as such the research was also an experiment in how to produce high quality costumes within financial limits. The film premiered as part of the British Independent Film Festival, Leicester Square London 2018. It has been selected for a number of independent film categories, including Out of the Can Festival and Toronto Indie Horror Festival.
