‘Sweeney Todd’ Costumes; 40-Minute Tim Burton Video Interview
Empress Eve   |  @   |  

Sweeney ToddDavid Poland of MCN conducted an interview with director Tim Burton, the video of which is now online and can be viewed here after the jump. In this 40-minute segment, Burton talks about his latest feature film, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.

In other Sweeney Todd news, USA Today has a feature on Colleen Atwood and her costume designs for film.

Atwood, who also worked on Beloved, Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events, and Burton’s Sleepy Hollow, said that her inspiration for Sweeney Todd was the music (scored by Stephen Sondheim). “It’s the starting point of all of it. It’s a moody piece, so I wanted a lot of texture in the costumes. I wanted you to be able to feel them on screen,” she said.

For the feature, the costume designer shares her inspirations, with accompanying images, for three of the characters from the film: Sweeney Todd (Johnny Depp), Mrs. Lovett (Helena Bonham Carter), and Judge Turpin (Alan Rickman).

Of Mrs. Lovett’s attire, Atwood reveals, “Underneath she had fantastic underwear you never see — great bloomers and corsets.” See the image here at right of Carter in Mrs. Lovett garb showing off those undergarments. (Click for larger view).

Atwood is a two-time Academy Award winner for her costume designs for 2002’s Chicago and 2005’s Memoirs of a Geisha, and has worked on several Tim Burton films including Edward Scissorhands and Planet of the Apes.
