Moderated by actor Adina Verson (“Only Murders in the Building”), the panel featured Dana Covarrubias (Costume Designer; Only Murders in the Building), Sarah Wormsbecher (VFX Executive Producer at FOLKS; Spider-Man: No Way Home), Lisa Myers (Production Designer; Bros), Brian Kubovcik (Head of Studio/Sr. VFX Supervisor at FuseFX Atlanta; DMZ; Pose), and Emily Gunshor (Costume Designer; 13: The Musical; Halloween Ends).



The discussion began with each panelist diving into their latest work and what it’s like to bring the greatest city in the world to the screen.


Dana Covarrubias began the conversation with a look into the costumes of “Only Murders in the Building,” which earned her an Emmy nomination earlier this year. “The city itself was a huge inspiration for the costume design of the show; we wanted to use the show to uplift and make people love New York again and come back here.”


Sarah Wormsbecher jumped in to discuss the visual effects of everyone’s favorite web-slinging superhero for “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” “My first job on the project was to sit with Marvel and talk about the sequences. Because it is such a huge production, you often have multiple vendors so organization is key.” 


On the same VFX topic, Brian Kubovcik talked about his experience bringing the 1980s NYC culture to the highly-acclaimed series, “Pose.” “The authenticity of Pose really came from the actual actors in the show. VFX comes in and picks up what they cannot accomplish practically in camera.”


Still speaking on NYC culture, Lisa Myers talked about how it influenced her work in the hit new film, “Bros.” “We always say New York plays a part in the movie, as New York is such an impactful place. As members of the LGBTQ community it was important for us to show diverse parts of New York, because I wanted to represent as many people as I could.” 


Emily Gunshor then gave the audience insight into how she used costumes to show the New York styles for “13: The Musical.” “It was really important in 13 for us to come up with a clear way to show the difference between New York and Indiana, so we picked a color palette for New York that was very dark and autumnal.” 


The conversation shifted to diving deeper into the projects of the panelists, including the iconic scene from “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” “I was so excited to work on that particular scene [where the three Spider-Men meet]; It's one of the highlights of my career,” said Sarah Wormsbecher.


New York Comic Con attendees left the panel with an insight into the entertainment industry and how they make New York City come to life onscreen.
