CourseSummer course in Costume design for cinema
Full-time | 3 ECTS | 4 & 6 weeks sessions also available
Do you want to learn how to create fabulous costumes for the stage or screen? In this course, you will get an overview of the process of costume design for the performance industry, along with an understanding of the important role that costuming plays in character creation. During the first week, you will investigate the world of costumes by analyzing and discussing images, videos, and readings to discover how historical factors, character personalities, proportion, color, materials, and tailoring techniques play into the process. Your class will make several visits to tailors’ shops, theaters, and costume archives. During the second week, you will work with your fellow students to design a portfolio of costumes for a live performance or a film. Depending on available time and participants’ skills, your class might also create a costume prototype. This course is intended for students with some background in that specific subject area and to students attending or having completed one or two years of their university studies in Art and Design who are keen on building upon this through hands-on training experience.
