Freebase

  1. Redress

    In film, a redress is the redecoration of an existing movie set, so that it can double for another set. This saves the trouble and expenses of constructing a second, new set, though they face the difficulty of doing it so the average viewer does not notice the same set is reused. Also there could be logistical problems, such as conflicting shooting schedules, continuity if the set isn't quite the same as it was or different. The latter problem arises because the set dresser may be unaware of changes created by the action.
