SETDECOR Speaks with Andrew Baseman, SDSA, on Trial of the Chicago 7

The Set Decorators Society of America (SDSA) has posted an interview with Set Decorator Andrew Baseman, SDSA, about working with Production Designer Shane Valentino on creating the locales for Aaron Sorkin‘s The Trial of the Chicago 7, now playing on Netflix.

On his collaboration with Valentino, Baseman says, “Shane and I had previously collaborated on the HBO movie The Normal Heart (Emmy® winner, Outstanding Television Movie), and loved our time together. We always wanted to reunite with another juicy project and our stars finally aligned for Chicago 7. Among other things, Shane is a master at finding detailed research, so by the time I came on to prep the movie, about 6 weeks from shooting, the walls of our offices were plastered with black and white photos of the actual riots, Black Panthers, protesters, judges, and lawyers. We watched archival footage and interviews and immersed ourselves in the music, art, and books of the late 1960s.”

It’s a great interview with lots of cool pictures that you can check out at SETDECOR
