The August Salon kicks off our NEBRASKA series, with the first of several months of collaborators from Alexander Payne’s new Paramount movie, opening in November. Â Mr. Payne himself will be our guest in September.
Wendy ChuckÂ has costumedÂ ELECTION, ABOUT SCHMIDT, SIDEWAYS, andÂ DESCENDENTS, so she has a long history of being one of Alexander Payne’s “A” List. She’ll be at the Salon in August to tell us about their latest film project,Â NEBRASKA, starringÂ Bruce DernÂ andÂ Will Forte.
An Australian native, Wendy has amassed an impressive list of film, theatre and ballet credits around the world, among them the featuresÂ TWILIGHT, THE RING TWO, BAD SANTA, andÂ VARSITY BLUES. She has also worked withÂ Jane CampionÂ on her featuresÂ PORTRAIT OF A LADY, THE PIANOÂ andÂ TWO FRIENDS, and won many awards in the US and Australia.We rarely have had the opportunity at a Salon to host a costume designer of her caliber, and learn about this important collaboration with Nebraska’s top director.
