Costume is a consideration that must be addressed for virtually every human-based character in any medium. This class will focus on how to approach costume design in the context of a project you are working on, such as a film, video, or animation. We will explore design options based on character, period, style, and storyline. Class presentations may be drawn, illustrated, or storyboarded based on the nature of your project. Techniques for bringing your ideas to life, such as researching, building, and sourcing costumes, will be explored. Source materials such as scripts will be reviewed; presentations will be critiqued during class; class members may also work collaboratively on their projects.
This course will be offered the second seven weeks of term.
