Make it Werq!
To say that Sarah Maiorino works quickly would be a massive understatement. She is one of the most efficient, decisive and self-motivated people on earth. When we hired Sarah to costume Sublets, a huge burden was lifted, for she immediately sprung into action, single-handedly creating looks and personally dressing each character in our wacky world. We realized very quickly that landing someone who self-governs and organizes the way she does, was, in the words of our producer, Sam, a "big win." This costume maven is smart, speedy, self-sufficient and somehow always still has time for a good laugh. But even more impressive--a brief read-thru of the scripts was all it took for her to seamlessly jump onto our creative wavelength. Characters we had been dreaming about for a year were analyzed, understood, and clothed by Sarah in a matter of a few days. Costuming this series was no easy task--at one point, during our shoot for Episode 2, Sarah and Kathy (our Wardrobe Supervisor) orchestrated about 80 costume changes in a 3 hour period at the end of our longest day of shooting--but Sarah handled every curveball with grace and a snappy witticism.
Sarah Maiorino began designing for theatre, finding her way into film and television via a stint touring the world with the Blue Man Group. She designed costumes for It Felt Like Love (Sundance 2013), about which Variety said "Spot-on costume and accessory design by Sarah Maiorino telegraphs reams of information about the characters while feeling completely natural." Other credits include The Saints Tour (NYC River to River Festival 2012) ; The Confines (LA Film Festival 2015) ; Desiree Akhavan’s Appropriate Behavior (Sundance 2014) ; My First Kiss and the People Involved; Black Mountain Songs (BAM’s 2014 Next Wave Festival); A Woman a Part ; ABC Live! with Kelly & Michael’s Annual Halloween Specials 2013- 2015; and commercial work for clients including Samsung, Comcast, Western Union, Hilton and Tiffany & Co. She is currently shooting the feature film Easy Living starring Caroline Dhavernas.
