Brigbsy Bear: Interview with Costume Designer Sarah Mae Burton

14 August 2017 2:36 AM, PDT

Brigsby Bear tells the bizarre yet charming tale of a young man, James Pope (Kyle Mooney), who was kidnapped as a baby and subsequently released into the world many years later with no knowledge of it beyond a non-existent kids television show. The film evokes a nostalgic view of the 1980s and, while is contemporary set, gently embraces that period in terms of its aesthetic.

Costume designer for Brigsby Bear, Sarah Mae Burton, experienced in both television and film, has created a familiar yet distinctive vibe that feels entirely believable. Here she talks exclusively to Clothes on Film about her process:

Clothes on Film: James Pope’s world for twenty five years seems very much grounded in the 1980s. Was this the idea, to give him this retro look throughout?

Sarah Mae Burton: The family that “abducted” him would have gone into the bunker in the late 70’s / very early 80’s, »
