48 The Costume Designer Winter 2021 C ostume design sits at a nexus in any production. Costume designers interact directly with the actors to create characters, and engage with the script to show time, place, class, culture, and theme. This makes them uniquely positioned to see how the entertain- ment industry works, and gain insight into the paths others take in their careers. Martika Ibarra first considered starting a podcast last May. She approached Marilyn Vance, who embraced the idea wholeheartedly. "I knew with Marilyn's background, we could create great podcasts with other related professionals sharing how they came to be in the industry, their struggles, and behind-the-scenes stories." In a whirlwind of activity, the Designing Hollywood Podcast was up and running by the end of July. Ibarra explains, "Our goal is to keep it growing and deliver educational, informative, and entertain- ing episodes to movie professionals and college students looking to pursue a career in the film industry." by Gary V.
