From Chromatography to “The Hunger Games”

The Blockbuster film “The Hunger Games” – based on the novel by Susan Collins – was released in theaters in March.

One of the distinctive things about the film is the costume and hat designs.Scarnati resized 600

We were proud to discover that the person responsible for that distinction was none other than Gina Scarnnati – who handled all of the costuming work for our company video production “The Adventures of Ana L’Tech”

Here’s some excepts from an article in the Wilmington News Journal:

As the head milliner for the mega blockbuster, Scarnati was responsible for translating the Capitol’s opulence in pleated silk satin, feathers and flowers. She designed nearly 200 headpieces in less than two months, including a stunning purple rose/butterfly/fan concoction worn by Effie Trinkett, an escort for District 12 played by Elizabeth Banks.

Scarnati, who has handled dyeing and distressing fabrics for townsfolk in the movie “Cowboys & Aliens” and vampires in HBO’s “True Blood” series, feels at homeĀ in a pressure cooker. By the age of 14, she was juggling costume design on three shows at a time.

Needless to say, we are incredibly proud of Gina’s accomplishments – and we’re grateful for the way she shared her talents with us!
