About: Take your films to the next level with our costume design workshop! Increase production value by learning how to approach designing costumes for your characters, why costume design matters, and how it all enhances the greater narrative of your story. We will be learning tips for period pieces, analyzing examples from film and tv, and finishing the day with you drawing and picking fabric swatches for your own look!

Thank you for all your hard work! Grace truly enjoyed the entire experience, and she got the opportunity to expand her skills working on a different genre of film. Her self confidence grew because of the camp and she continues to learn how to work with all different kinds of people. Grace will continue to be a part of Reel Stories for a long time to come!
