Writer launches campaign to credit movie florists

The woman behind the first floral news website is spearheading a campaign to celebrate forgotten movie florists.
New York-based write Jill Brooke came up with the idea for the #FloristsDeserveCredit initiative after speaking to Brit Jenny Tobin, who has landed her first film credit for her work on The Favourite.
Jenny Tobin has created gardens and extravagant arrangements for more than 60 films in 25 years, but much of her work has gone uncredited – and Brooke wants that to change for all florists.
“I actually have a credit on The Favourite – for the first time ever!” Tobin tells Brooke’s site FlowerPowerWithJill.com. “It’s terrible. We put weeks in of hard labour with thousands of pounds of flowers. Yet the grip’s mate, the painter’s mate, a set decorator’s assistant will get a credit, but not the set florist.”
Tobin’s films have also included Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Bohemian Rhapsody, according to the New York Post’s Page Six column.
