I was the costume designer for this short student film 'The Magician'. The corset was made by myself and costume assistant, and everything else was sourced.
"At the height of their careers, two stage magicians struggle with dementia as it slowly unravels the world they created together."
The Magician is a short drama that explores what it's like when everything you hold dear to you begins to disappear. Through the eyes of two married stage magicians, the film deals with love, death and identity upon the backdrop of their daily struggle with dementia and a lingering request for an assisted death.
