Jenny Anderton

Costume Designer

 

Jenny has worked on numerous film, TV and theatre productions. In total, she has costumed over fifty different productions, ranging from pantomime to an art house feature and everything in between. For Jenny, costumes are all about creating visual cues for the audience, so they know who the character is before the actor even says their first line. She believes that costumes are essential in helping an actor get into character, so a large part of her design process revolves around trying to get into the head of the character.
