An Introduction to Costuming for Film & Television

Hollywood and Las Vegas Costume Designer Diana Eden presents an overview of what it takes to design period, sci-fi, and contemporary costumes for today's world of film. Diana's presentation is suitable not only for those interested in costume as a career, but for anyone planning to enter the world of film, videos, television, or commercials. Presentation will include clips and slides from films of all genres and a discussion of the collaborative nature of design in film emphasizing the relationship of designer with producer, director, DP, and all production elements and crew.

The seminar will include a practical hands-on segment using an existing script (Las Vegas produced Stealing Las Vegas) for instruction on creating a costume plot, scene breakdown, continuity notes, budgets and more.

In addition she has designed dozens of stage productions in Los Angeles and New York. She has designed wardrobe for many of Hollywood's biggest stars, including George Clooney, Debra Messing, Melissa Gilbert, Kathy Bates, Cloris Leachman, Reba McEntire, Dana Delaney, Marlee Matlin, and Anjelica Huston. 

Diana received an Emmy nomination for A League of Their Own, plus two more Emmy nominations for NBS's Passions
