Tuesday and Thursdays | 6 -7:30 p.m. | 3 sessions
What is a fashion film? Join Fuchsia Lin, filmmaker and fashion/costume designer for this course about the possibilities of showing fashion in motion through the medium of film. We’ll watch and discuss different kinds of fashion films that go beyond the fashion industry and cross over into other mediums of dance, art installation, sculpture, architecture, and as a tool for social change. Students will be given a list of resources for fashion films where they can research films for an assignment.
Fuchsia will share her process of creating her fashion/dance films from the perspective of being a designer. She’ll show behind the scenes footage of rehearsals, filming a fashion film, and talk about collaborating with dancers/models to bring her fashion/costume designs to life on the screen. Students will be inspired and empowered to create their own fashion films.
Fuchsia will lead the class through the initial steps to develop a fashion film idea for a project of their own. The course is designed for participants with little-to-no filming experience, however everyone will be encouraged to create a short video using their phones, (for those with more filming experience using a video camera) to share with the class.
