HOTEL MUMBAI

An Australian feature film, shot in India and based on the horrendous terrorist attacks of 26/11, on Mumbai, India

As an Assistant Set decorator and an on-set dresser, I was responsible for meticulously analysing the script and conducting research in order to recreate the prestigious Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai. I was also assigned with sourcing the set dressings, props and fabrics for furniture and artwork.

The film won the Australian Production Designers Guild Award 2019 for Best Production Design for a feature film.
