    56:22

    Phil (Goldy) Goldsworthy’s CV reads like a list of the epic films made by UK crew of the last 20 years. Beginning your film work on Fifth Element is a pretty good start for any one and as you will hear, Phil has been involved in most of the large crowd productions (although not apparently Gladiator) since then.What is not so well known is that prior to his involvement with Fifth Element he had co won Young Engineer of Great Britain – and we have the footage to prove it from back in the day when mullets were a hairstyle of choice.A thoroughly conscientious and diligent wardrobe man,  Phil has been at the very sharp end of a huge number of films and his passion for the industry shines through this interview.

Along the way Howard has worked on some iconic TV series including Dr Who, Red Dwarf, Poldark and Wurzel Gummidge.A great believer in the strength of the team, he see his role as a collaborative one – he is  equally at home putting looks together at Costume Houses or finding ways to make the costumes with his team.  He is not too proud to be found towards the end of a filming day doing the laundry on the Wardrobe truck if it means his team can get home earlier.Howard has an infectious joy about him when he is talking about costume or around costume, always projecting a sense of calm no matter what chaos is happening on a film set.  He has forged great relationships with actors, crew and directors which has led him to the position he now has in the industry.  His body of work and growing list of collaborators is testament to that
