Colour in Stage and Costume Design – webinar series
This webinar looked at the mission of a costume designer in augmenting the actors’ storytelling, and enhancing the audiences understanding of a particular story. Colour is one of many tools designers use to accomplish this mission.
Colour helps inform an audience of production theme, time setting, geographic location, character status, relationships and personality, as well as guide the audience focus at specific moments in a production.
In this webinar costume designer Julane Sullivan discussed how colour choices are made to achieve the desired result.
The presentation is followed by a Q&A.
