Behind-the-scenes photos from a short film about the 1937 Wimbledon ladies' singles final, for which I worked alongside Casey O'Callaghan to design, source and create props and set. These included a replica of a 1936 EMI Emitron broadcast camera and of the Venus Rosewater Dish, fencing built in front of the audience members, programmes, a custom-made period umpire's chair, sign, net post covers, and period rackets, balls, and other decorational props. The film was created through a massive collaboration across the Costume and Performance Design, Make-up for Media and Performance, Dance, and Film Production courses at the Arts University Bournemouth, featuring over 60 custom-made costumes, celebrating the 80th anniversary of the first time the BBC broadcasted the Championships. Creative direction by Mark Sephton/Creative Forager, costume design by Tiffany Dawson, supervision by Rhian Beavis and Demi Tarrant.
