This year’s Giorgio Armani filmmaking course will be open to applicants from around the world, and have Luca Guadagnino leading the project.
Last week, Salvatore Ferragamo announced a new course for budding shoe designers and now it’s the turn of another iconic Italian brand to reveal the second instalement of the Armani/Laboratorio Project – an intensive filmmaking program.
Taking place in Milan later this year, the 10-day curriculum will be free and cover eight subjects, such as directing, screenwriting, cinematography, editing, production design, costume design, make-up and hair styling, all taught by leaders in the film industry.
The Oscar-nominated director Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name and A Bigger Splash) will oversee the course that will focus on ‘growth, identity, the new world of women’. In a statement, Armani said:
“Cinema, like fashion, enchants us with the use of images. It’s the product of team work in which the end result depends on everyone’s contribution. Armani/Laboratorio is my idea of a ‘film atelier’ where stories are created by students working together with guidance and support from the most highly skilled key players in the industry.”
At the end, a lucky handful of students will create a film, and with last year’s creation being screened during the Giorgio Armani FW2018 show, it could potentially mean great exposure and strong first step in a film career.
Sounds good? Make sure to apply by October 2.
