QUOTE OF THE DAY: Production Designer Sarah Greenwood is Up to the Task

When producers start asking in a job interview whether you can “handle” a job, ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘Darkest Hour’ production designer Sarah Greenwood knows just how to respond.

“I recently went for a job and the producer asked, “This is really big, can you fit in with it?” I’ve worked on huge sets, so the answer was simple: ‘If you have the time and resources and backup team, you can do anything’. When I met with the director, he said he’d been asked the same question; it wasn’t a gender issue – though it could have seemed that way. The movie was huge and they wanted to make sure that everyone understood and was up to the task.”
