When creating a period film, attention to detail from the production designer and the costumer designer is key in capturing the look and feel of the era.

Production designer Rick Carter and costume designer Joanna Johnston, who have worked together on several films for Steven Spielberg, have done just that in “Lincoln,” creating a sense of authenticity in the sets and clothing. The audience is made to feel that his is a world inhabited by real people, not just actors playing dress-up.

Carter has served as the production designer on “Jurassic Park” (1993), “Amistad” (1997), “The Lost World: Jurassic Park” (1997), “A.I. Artificial Intelligence” (2001), “War of the Worlds” (2005), “Munich” (2005), and “War Horse” (2011). He won an Oscar for Best Art Direction for “Avatar” (2009) and was nominated for “Forrest Gump” (1994) and “War Horse.”

Joanna Johnston served as costume designer on “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade” (1989), “Saving Private Ryan” (1998), “War of the Worlds”, “Munich”, and “War Horse.” Surprisingly, despite having worked on several award-winning projects, Johnston has never been nominated for an Oscar.

Both are strong contenders for nominations this year, and for good reason. Carter and Johnston spoke with Gold Derby about their work on the film and their collaboration with each other.
