The Costume Studies for Film and Television Program at Seneca changed my life. It taught me the importance of organization, time management, and public relations, and I couldn’t ask for better teachers! It was beneficial to learn from experts who were actively working in the industry. I recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in film and to all fashion graduates.

I graduated from Seneca’s Costume Studies for Film and Television Program in the summer of 2005, and found it to be extremely relevant when I went out and worked in the film industry. Right away I was lucky enough to work as a Costume Designer on an independent feature film. Everything I had been taught was put to use. I knew exactly how to breakdown the script, how to budget for costume needs, where to go for the things I required, how to conduct my self on set, and what was required of me. I‘ve worked in a variety of wardrobe positions since then and have been continually grateful for all that was shown to me at Seneca. The teachers were first rate industry professionals, exceedingly knowledgeable, helpful and well connected in the film industry. Class size was small and created an absorbing and intimate learning experience, and by the end of the program I was an IATSE Permitee, something you need to be if you want to work in the Toronto Film Industry, and something very difficult to otherwise get.
