AFTRS: Intro to Costume Design
Oscar and BAFTA winner Tim Chappel (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert) leads this introductory class, designed to give you the foundations to bring to life screen stories through the art of costume design. This practical intensive emphasises the importance of a designer’s ability to translate a director’s vision and collaborate with actors. Students will examine the creative process of the costume designer, their roles and responsibilities in relation to all aspects of the filmmaking process, the logistics of managing schedule and budget, and coordinating a Costume Department. A rare chance to learn from one of Australia’s finest costume designers. Places are limited.
