ScreenSkills Film Costume Trainee

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I originally started my education in fashion & design, but as I have gotten older and begun looking to the future I have become more career orientated, and consequently have sought out a career in costume, specifically within film. Due to my education and work history, I have a fair amount of making experience, thus have strong making skills which particularly include hand sewing & embroidery. I also have basic pattern drafting and cutting skills and I'm confident with alterations. However my aim for now is to expand my set experience as stand-by etc and eventually would like it to be on the same level as my makings skills. I particular enjoy crowd stand-by and fitting roles and I'm happy to work as hard as it takes to grow further in that stage. I'm currently also pursuing a driving license.
