Manchester – Keith Nelson grew up in Manchester, but only in the last few weeks has he had the opportunity to search for shops in Buckland for the first time as part of his fashion designer filming in Connecticut.
Although his career has made him mainly in New York City, he recently brought him to his hometown. He designed costumes for an unnamed Christmas film in Connecticut, performing Barbara Eden, Patrick Malden and Dennis Richards, who played a working mother living in Hartford.
Nielsen stressed that Richards’ character costume design is different from her stylist.
“Denice Richards will not play Denise Richards,” Nelson said. “She plays a mother in this story. We wear a character: she is a photographer… I always wear pants. She wants to get up and start working. She doesn’t want to wear a skirt. I like this role. “Practical”.”
He said that style is to show one’s best figure, or to highlight the brightness of their smiles and refine them to suit this occasion. Clothing design is different.
Nielsen said that fashion design “doesn’t look cute.” “It’s about telling stories and bringing people into life. Especially for modern clothing, there is a reason… For me, that’s why, why do they wear everything they wear? ?”
Sometimes his design needs to wear unfit or unfit clothes, just like he designed for the 38-year-old Justin Long to play a 14-year-old in the “Funny or Death” series.
Nielsen said: “Being part of a teenager is trying to find the right clothes.”
This work involves asking questions and holding conversations. First read the script, then let the director’s costume for the character, then the actor’s thoughts, “then I found a common clue,” he said.
As a student of Eastern Catholic High School, Nielsen is interested in painting, painting and engraving. After graduating from high school, he went to the Linlin College of Art and Design in Florida. He imagined himself as a stylist and entrepreneur.
“I said that I will never make clothes, never make movies, and will not drive in New York. Now I have done three,” Nelson said.
After a period of unemployment, Nielsen began an internship in the Amazon Prime series “Mozart in the Jungle”. As a production assistant, he then acted as a clothing coordinator and performed well in the show.
He believes that starting from the first floor and moving forward, giving him strong organizational skills, a thorough understanding of the many moving parts of the work, and the ability to install about 500 contacts on two hangars.
“This is a never-ending process,” Nelson said. “When people wear the same clothes for several days, you have to clean and steam to make sure it looks the same every day.”
In all of this, he can temporarily return to Manchester for a while.
“It’s refreshing to go home with my dog… I live with Shady Glen, where I always get cheeseburgers and milkshakes,” he said.
