LOS ANGELES (April 14, 2021) — Brian Kite, Interim Dean of the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television (UCLA TFT), and Professor Deborah Nadoolman Landis, Ph.D., founding director of the UCLA TFT David C. Copley Center for Costume Design, are pleased to announce the 11th annual Sketch to Screen Costume Design Panel, in partnership with Swarovski. Sketch to Screen is a celebration of costume design and includes costume designers nominated for Academy Awards in 2021. The virtual event will take place on Saturday, April 24, 2021.
The panelists include Academy Award nominees Alexandra Byrne (Emma.), Massimo Cantini Parrini (Pinocchio), Bina Daigeler (Mulan) and Trish Summerville (Mank). This marks the sixth Academy Award nomination for Academy Award winner Byrne (Elizabeth: The Golden Age) and the first nominations for Cantini Parrini, Daigeler and Summerville.
UCLA TFT’s David C. Copley Center for Costume Design has a longstanding partnership with Swarovski to provide annual support for the highly successful Sketch to Screen Costume Design Panel; the Swarovski Designer-in-Residence masterclass program; and the Swarovski Shooting Star Award for Excellence in Costume Design scholarship.
Founded in 1895 in Austria, for almost a century, Swarovski has collaborated on crystal costume and set designs for the silver screen, making its Hollywood debut in the 1932 film Blonde Venus, starring Marlene Dietrich, and, more recently, adding its signature sparkle to iconic moments in such box-office hits as The Greatest ShowmanMary Queen of Scots and Rocketman with more than 1 million Swarovski crystals. Through its support of design education, Swarovski aims to promote culture and creativity and nurture the next generation of talent.
On the eve of the Academy Awards each year, Professor Landis welcomes a stellar group of international costume designers to discuss the art of costume design. With Professor Landis moderating, the Sketch to Screen panelists engage in a thought-provoking panel discussion about the central role costume designers play in cinematic storytelling and the creation of unforgettable characters. The conversation is an invaluable master class from some of the most creative minds in Hollywood.
In February 2020, the Sketch to Screen panel was comprised of 2020 Academy Award winner Jacqueline Durran (Little Women), along with Academy Award nominees Mark Bridges (Joker), Christopher Peterson (The Irishman), Arianne Phillips (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood), Sandy Powell (The Irishmanand Mayes Rubeo (Jojo Rabbit).
