Costume Designer Mark Bridges Talks Broadway Beginnings, ‘News Of The World’ & The Time He Won A Jet Ski At The Oscars

Quote
One of his first big breaks was when he was hired for Hard Eight by a 25-year-old Paul Thomas Anderson. “[We] had very little money for Hard Eight, but had a good time making it. It was a lot of fun. We lived at the casino that we shot at. Of course, we didn’t have much money, but it was shot in Reno, and at the time, Reno was really the land of thrift stores,” Bridges notes. “So, it was perfect. I needed clothes for no money, and they had all the resources right there.”

In his relationship with the auteur, Bridges found longevity. In the decades since Hard Eight, the pair have reteamed on seven other acclaimed features—including Boogie Nights, Magnolia, Punch-Drunk Love, There Will Be Blood, The Master, Inherent Vice and Phantom Thread. And recently, they joined forces once again on a highly anticipated film that has yet to be titled, starring Bradley Cooper, Benny Safdie and Cooper Hoffman. “It’s 25 years we’ve been working together,” Bridges marvels, “so that’s exciting that we’re still going at this point. Paul and I work the way that we have always worked.”

I watched "Blow" just because Mark Bridges did the costumes for it!

Mark Kermode’s favourite movie soundtracks of all time

Quote
This ability for music to capture the atmosphere of a time and place in cinema was a factor that he eulogised once again in There Will Be Blood. For the Paul Thomas Anderson story of oilmen clashing and cultist religions, he declared: “I remember watching the film and about 20-30 minutes in thinking, ‘I’m not distinguishing between the sound effects and the music.’ It all sounded like all the sound was coming out of the landscape, that is the highest compliment.”

For There Will Be Blood, Johnny Greenwood, who scored the film, even declared that Anderson “even cut some of the film to the music which is so the wrong way round.” The result is a hand in glove marriage of sound and vision that Kermode found enthralling and perfectly simpatico in equal measure.
