The Cinematographic Costume is a two-year course, which covers all industrial and business topics related to the costume department. The course typically requires around 950 hours, varying according to the expected production.

I Year - History and Techniques

The cinematographic costume is a fundamental element of the creation and construction of the characters and the story, as well as the look and the way a movie is filmed. As for people, the costume can never be generic, as it is the result of reality; this is why the work of the costume designer can be assimilated to that of an anthropologist. The first year, therefore, focuses on the basic elements and foundations of the history of the cinematographic costume, the organization of the department, the manual skills and the tailoring techniques, parallel to the literacy of the cinematographic language of all departments and basic computer science....

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.... [-]

From a certain point of view, the film editor may be the most misunderstood of all film professionals. Often thought of as just a technician, a good film editor is actually more of an artist. It is the job of the editor to sort through many hours of footage provided by the director, and somehow piece together the shots that will best tell the story the director is trying to tell. A good film editor doesn't just find the best shots: he/she knows how to create artistic sequences that keep the audience guessing and wanting more. Needless to say, film editing can make or break a film, which is why good film editors are highly respected in the industry, and even more in high demand.

In the Film Connection film editing program, you'll learn both the technical aspect and the storytelling aspect of film editing. As an apprentice (extern), you'll be mentored by a professional editor in a real post-production facility as you learn to use Final Cut Pro and other professional editing software programs, and with our structured course curriculum, you'll also learn how to use those technical skills to tell a good story....
