It has been 13 years since Christopher Guest, a longtime director known for his mockumentary style films, released “A Mighty Wind”, his last feature film. Now, in 2016, he has returned with a new film called “Mascots” and it is set to premiere through Netflix on October 13, 2016.
If you are a fan of Guest, you will notice a handful of familiar faces in this film because many of the actors and actresses have been featured in his previous work. Some of the stars include, Jane Lynch, Fred Willard, Jennifer Coolidge, Ed Begley Jr., Chris O’Dowd, and Parker Posey.
“Mascots” is a mockumentary film that follows all different types of mascots who represent brands and sports teams. It isn’t an easy life for mascots out there in such a competitive business. The film revolves around the World Mascot Associate Championship where mascots from all over compete for the Gold Fluffy Award, the most prestigious award in the field.
We worked with key costumer, Esther Lee, to provide many of the sports uniforms and equipment featured in this film. That includes the baseball uniforms, umpire gear, soccer uniforms, football equipment, hockey uniforms, hockey referee uniforms, basketball jerseys, basketball referee uniforms, boxing boots, and letterman jackets. Lastly, we customized some of the jerseys by adding names to them.
