Amanda got her start designing costumes for going out at night in her younger days as a club-goer in 1990s Portland, Oregon. Fellow Mt. Freelance podcast guest David Cress gave her a shot at costume design for commercials and she never looked back.
Amanda has worked on independent films like Wendy and Lucy and TV shows like Shrill, Portlandia, Baskets and Chad. Sometimes even on more than one at the same time! Her work earned her all kinds of recognition including winning an Emmy not once but twice.
In our interview Amanda talks about how she got her start, her approach to the creative process and how she does her best work when she is helping to create a character and backstory through costume design.
She also talks about being a mom, balancing work and family and how she was initially supposed to make 14 costumes for Shakira’s Super Bowl performance but had to make 50 when the performer decided all her dancer’s needed to wear them.
And that’s a wrap on Season One. Thanks for listening.
