BEHIND THE LENS
Natalie O'Brien is a Costume Designer currently residing in LA and is with Zero Gravity Management.
Just barely out of college she started working in high fashion. Styling commercials, photo shoots and music videos until she found her real passion - television & film.
Her first TV job was working for CBS on the Soap Opera; The Bold & The Beautiful which is how she got her start in the union. She soon started getting involved in the indie world there after when she designed a film called A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night, by Analily Amirpour. This went to Sundance in 2014 and that's when she knew she had found her niche.
In 2016 she costume designed two very different films that both were starring Aubrey Plaza. Both these films ended up at Sundance that year. Ingrid Goes West, starring Elizabeth Olsen and the 15th century comedy she did in Italy called The Little Hours, starring John C. Reily, Molly Shannon and Dave Franco.
After the success of AGWAAN, she thrillingly designed for Amirpour again on a dystopian film called The Bad Batch, starring Jim Carrey, Keanu Reeves and Jason Momoa. This went to the Venice film festival as well as the Toronto film festival.
The most recent film that premiered at Sundance of 2017 and is out now nationally in cinemas - is called Lizzie. It's an 1890's period thriller depicting the true story of the Lizzie Borden murders. Some of the cast included Chloe Sevigny and Kristen Stewart.
In the last year she did two films with model/actress Emily Ratajkowski called Welcome Home (starring Aaron Paul) & Lying and Stealing (Theo James). And in Early 2018 she designed the Alma Harel film Honey Boy starring Shia Labeouf, Lucas Hedges and Noah Jupe.
Slowly making her way out of the indie land and into the studio world - she is currently costume designing a Disney feature called Stargirl, a spin off the Jerry Spinelli book.
Currently looking to collaborate with creative driven individuals.
