Teri Schwartz, dean of UCLA’s School of Theater, Film and Television (UCLA TFT), and Deborah Nadoolman Landis, founding director of the David C. Copley Center for the Study of Costume Design, announced the fourth annual Sketch to Screen costume design panel, celebrating Oscar week. Costume designers from films of 2013 will gather Feb. 28 in the James Bridges Theater. Panel discussions will focus on the role costume designers play in cinematic storytelling.
Panelists include Wendy Chuck, Nebraska, Daniel Orlandi, Saving Mr. Banks, Trish Summerville, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, as well as this year’s Academy Award nominees Catherine Martin, The Great Gatsby and Michael Wilkinson, American Hustle. Landis, costume designer and TFT Copley professor, will moderate.
Sketch to Screen panelists will discuss the world of the costume designer and insight into the artistic challenges that arise on set. During last year’s panel, 2013 Academy Award winner Jacqueline Durran, Anna Karenina, shared director Joe Wright‘s suggestion that she merge the film’s period with 1950s’ couture, a behind-the-scenes detail that ended up winning her the Oscar.
The panel discussion begins at 2:00 p.m. with a dessert reception to follow.
