In general, we think of the costume department as a technical one, linked more to the sartorial than to the authorial aspect. Instead, it is one of the most important artistic departments, because a good costume is often what gives shape to the character. Good costume designers must know how to read and analyze a script and use their art to dress the protagonists of the story of a personality, thus helping the actor to better embody the character. And we are not just speaking of historical costumes, those that most affect the attention of the general audience, but also the modern and urban ones, which are often not noticed but that give the characters their own identity.

With all its lights and shadows, the film industry remains one of the strongest sectors worldwide, and it is arguably the most influential. Not only by means of its complex ramifications, but also because of something much more important: it has a direct effect upon the consciousness of people; that is, on the way they feel, think and dream.

The film industry employs all sorts of professionals. No other sector includes such a variety of personal profiles: from scientists to athletes, from persons who work in isolation to the most social and talkative ones, from artists to business people. You only have to read the credits of some movies to get proof.

Along the course, you will learn the fundaments of filmmaking and will accomplish a solid foundation upon which you may grow in any direction. Once there, the course will help you choose your area of interest and will provide you with the proper tools to specialize. But, most important, this course is about who you are, what you truly want and how to achieve it. In short, it is about creating, facing and fulfilling your dream. Because, both, the film industry and yourself can be rightly seen as that: factories of dreams. And this course is about helping these factories work for good.... [-]
