So with the dress where Katniss spins around, and the white sort of flames into the black, did you have to worry about how that would work technically?  Or were you just like, we’ll just make it look cool?

So many things we had to worry about technically, how they worked. The wedding dress is definitely one of them. We had to have it so that she could spin, and it would twirl when she twirled. That wedding dress was quite heavy. I spoke with the designer of the dress, Tex Saverio, via Skype on a lot of it. He built this kind of hoop underneath, to make sure it stayed light. The spinning worked, surprisingly, really, really well. When she was onstage, I was pretty surprised at how much air it did catch.

I have to admit, it does look very cool.

It wasn't dangerous to her, was it?

You're reminded of Michael Jackson's 1984 Pepsi commercial, yes?
