Reply To: Question for those in the film industry

First of all, I cannot in all good conscience recommend that any young person get into the film industry, and definitely not if they are female. Our son is studying film, I wish he wasn’t, but I am not going to stand in front of a moving vehicle. Our daughter, fortunately, has shown no interest.

I don’t know of many costume or set designers who actually studied their fields in school. Most of them are art school grads. I believe that FIDM has programs in costume design now, and USC, might, but I am not sure.
NYU has the best programs for costume and stage design.

Not trying to rain on anyone’s parade, and others may say something different. That is just MY personal perspective.
