Chris Dobson’s in-depth knowledge of Italian art and history can bring an impressive level of accuracy to your production, but more importantly, he can put particular details of costume, architecture or interior décor into context for your designers in a way that evokes the feel of a time and place with much more impact. Instead of a lot of unrelated historical details, he can give you a coherent vision that convincingly brings a moment in history to life for your audience.
In over 30 years of working in museums and archives, Chris has built up a profound knowledge of many aspects of Medieval and Renaissance European history and culture, as you will find in his books, which in themselves are great resources for production designers.
As former Master Armourer to the Royal Armouries, he is also a uniquely-skilled expert on the manufacture, style and use of European arms and armour from the Classical World to the 17th century, and their role in society and conflict.
