LUNCHTIME LECTURE: The job title Costume Designer can evoke a glamorous career spent drawing tasteful sketches for elegant outfits worn in beautiful worlds far from our own. It is often overlooked that every single piece of drama on film requires a Costume Designer.
The work needs to be almost invisible, drawing the viewer into a belief in the reality of the created world. Story telling and character arcs are extremely subtle and need to speak in a highly sophisticated language because the viewer subconsciously operates within this language every day. There can be no clumsy statements, and unauthentic characters will be quickly spotted by a contemporary audience. Join Costume Designer Jane Petrie as she explores these issues.
