Living up to the looks of Blade Runner, Ridley Scott’s 1982 science-fiction classic, was stressful for Renée April. She began designing costumes for Blade Runner 2049, the sequel starring Ryan Gosling, with the bar already set pretty high, she said. Over-the-top zoot suits, slashed stockings and other fashions that mixed punk and noir had made Scott’s hyperfuturistic world unmistakable. “You have no idea how many sketches I did of crazy stuff in the beginning,” April says from her home in Montreal.
Played by Mackenzie Davis, this doxie, or a kind of escort, as Ms. April described her, wears a floor-length coat striped with fuchsia feathers that are starting to dull. While the materials that went into Mariette’s wardrobe — fake fur, and lots of it — may be humble, her overall style is big, bold and colorful, if a tad wilted. Her black pom-pom of a hat is wild and unkempt. “She’s probably the character where you can see the most affinity between the films,” Ms. April said.
LONG-TERM travel is a challenge few people are willing to take on. But in 1996, when Jodi Ettenberg was still in high school, a PBS documentary about the Trans-Siberian Railway got the Montreal native to dreaming about it. Eventually, she went to law school and worked as a lawyer in New York for five years, but two-week vacations — even a month — didn’t satisfy her. “It was always percolating under the surface,” she said.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
