Lydia Marks - It's a Very New York Story
On this epiosde I’m joined by Set Decorator Lydia Marks. Being from New York City she certainly has made a mark on some recent films that burst with #NYC design. WIth a background in photography and art history you can see in her sets how she works in he details to the frame. I talk to her about #FosseVerdon and the detailss and research it took to bring their lives to the screen. I asked about the influence New York City has on her films and about working woth femail directors. Lydia’s fims include You can Count on Me, Broken Flowers, The Namesake, #TheDevilWearsPrada, #SexandtheCity 1 and 2, Away We go, Synecdoche: New York, The Brave One, Money Monster, and the #Netflix show #Maniac. She’s also worked with great directors such as Jim Jermush, Jodi Foster, Sam Mendes, and Charlie Kaufman.
She has been nominated for an International Online Cinema Awards for Synecdoche, New York, an #ArtDirectorsGuild Award for #Maniac and she is currently nominated for her work on #FosseVerdon, the story of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon’s life that spands from the 40’s to the 80’s. She is a working mom, a partner in an interior design Group called Marks and Farnz, works consistantly, and in all this I dont’ know how she finds time but her instagram is pretty impressive too!
