PATRIZIA VON BRANDENSTEIN (Scenic and Costume Design) began her film career in 1972, with a debut screen credit as a set decorator on the acclaimed drama The Candidate, and subsequently worked as both a scenic artist and costume designer, with credits including Between the Lines and Saturday Night Fever.  Teaming with husband and fellow production designer Stuart Wurtzel on Joan Micklin Silver’s turn-of-the-century immigrant tale Hester Street, helped move von Brandenstein into art direction. Soon she was designing sets for films as varied as the teen comedy drama Breaking Away and Milos Forman’s lavish period recreation Ragtime, for which she shared an Oscar nomination as art director.  By the early 1980s she was a full-fledged production designer, assuming supervisory capacities and laying out much of the visual texture of her films.  Among her notable projects was the striking “Heartland,” set in the old West, and her work with director Mike Nichols on Silkwood, Working Girl and Postcards from the Edge. In 1985, Von Brandenstein won the Academy Award for her vividly detailed rendering of the age of Mozart for Amadeus, her second collaboration with Forman. In 1987, Von Brandenstein received her third Oscar nomination for Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables, and further distinguished herself with her work on the teen musical Beat Street, the high-society comedy drama Six Degrees of Separation and a return to the West for The Quick and the Dead.  Her additional production credits include A Chorus Line, Billy Bathgate, Sneakers, Leap of Faith, Just Cause, The People Vs. Larry Flynt and Mercury Rising, as well as A Simple Plan, Man on the Moon, Shaft, The Ice Harvest, All the King’s Men and Goya’s Ghosts.  Von Brandenstein also worked on the historical drama The Last Station, directed by Michael Hoffman, for whom she designed The Emperor’s Club in 2002. Most recently, she designed the acclaimed Irish drama Albert Nobbs starring Glenn Close and Janet McAteer, and David Mamet’s production of the courtroom drama, Phil Spector, starring Helen Mirren and Al Pacino, for HBO.
