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.

How to Write a Screenplay

The Screenplay Itinerary (Cinema, Television and New Media) is a two-level syllabus - distributed over two academic years - specifically designed for the training of screenwriters.

Although the natural name of the script is cinematic, the truth is that it would be absurd to pretend that, in 2016, the Internet or television does not exist. And although it is true that both share a common basis with the grandfather of celluloid, so it is that they assume the appearance of new conditions, new opportunities and, therefore, require the scriptwriter a certain ability to adapt and mutate their work.

Objectives of the Itinerary

The goal of Guion's Itinerary is for the student to acquire the technical and narrative tools of the scriptwriter, as well as a structured method to tackle projects more or less complex and a basic knowledge with which to defend themselves in the vast and emerging audiovisual market.... [-]
