After 20 years of living my dream of working in the Film business , I found a way to incorporate my love of technology with my passion for the film industry. In 2013 I released the iCostume App for tracking costume continuity on film sets. Recording costume continuity notes on set is a time consuming task traditionally done manually using pen, paper and a digital camera. iCostume reduces human error and saves hours of overtime at the end of a long shooting day. Two years on, I am expanding my ethos of ‘making life easier using digital’ by introducing ‘seamless’ to international motion picture industry.
