Sunlight filters in through the curtains - light and shadow play. The moment is serene and then…

MA students in Cinematography, Production Design and Costume Design co-wrote a short script and created a world around it. The collaboration resulted atmospheric scenes from the 1900s. The Advanced MA Film Lab course was arranged in Aalto Studios at Roihupelto, Helsinki.

MA students in Cinematography, Production Design and Costume Design worked together on a course Advanced MA Film Lab in our Studios at Roihupelto.

Two stories from different decades were filmed in the same sets. Production designers decorated the interior again between the shootings. With the help of painters, the walls got new surface treatments. Next posts will show you how the costumes and lighting finalized the desired atmosphere from 1900s and 1960s. The stories were shot on film.

One of the best features of the pattern software is the possibility to create your own pattern library.

You don’t need to start always from the scratch – you can modify old patterns easily by using interactive tools or use them as a basic block and continue with new design. The ease can be changed, and patterns can be graded over and over again in different sizes.

No more glue on your fingers or ripped papers 🤯

Costume Workshop provides CAD software for generating professional clothing patterns. The main features are:

+ Basic blocks (trousers, skirts, jackets, bodies, collars, hoods etc.).
+ Interactive basic constructions.
+ Standard and individual measurement charts.
+ Automatic grading.

The software can be utilized in many ways, depending on student’s knowledge. For the beginners, the basic block can be printed out with required measurements and student can continue the patterning in traditional way. Experienced users can operate the software by themselves and use all the functions.

If you have basic knowledge in patterning and would like to learn more, be in touch.

The Online-orientation is now available at MyCourses!

New orientation options are established for providing easy access to the Aalto Studios Workshops facilities, but not to forgetting the safety at work. In Costume Workshop, the orientation can be done mainly in online at MyCourses: search “OK7 Costume Workshop” and follow the instructions.

Aalto Studios Workshops are open for Aalto students & researchers for study related projects. Just choose a suitable orientation option for your purposes and be in contact with us. The detailed info can be found on each workshop’s web-pages, link in Bio.

From @aaltostudios_costume_workshop : Sometimes the costume is so huge that we need some extra space and help from the colleagues.

Aalto Studios Workshops combines Set Design Workshop, Fablab and Costume Workshop facilities & staff’s expertise. With this combo, one could claim that making almost anything is possible.

Oscar Dempsey’s MA thesis production #sublimehumility was a great example how to utilize the wholeness of Aalto Studios Workshops.

Have you ever seen or created inflatable costumes or accessories?
.
With the inflatable technology you are able to create big and light weight costumes & accessories, which can be filled in a dramaturgically right spot of the performance.
.
Remember that fitting and making the costumes with special technology will normally take more time than you expected. Reserve double or triple time for the making, pre-planning & re-thinking. With such a project, we offer support together with the @aaltofablab professionals.

Fittings = 🤸🏽‍♂️
.
Fittings with the performers include often testing how the costume works with movements. In this case, the extra challenge was given by 16 meters of non-stretchy wires embedded into the costume.
.
Our spacious fitting area with big mirrors and make-up facilities makes the fitting a pleasant experience for the customer and when necessary, for a bigger production group.

The research project “Digitalising performance with wearables and software” brought together Aalto ARTS, Aalto Science and University of the Arts Helsinki in 2018. The full article is available on our websites, link in Bio.

Press-fit kit does not have to be boring. It is one of those things that Fab Academy students are asked to improve on at the end of the course. Meet @media.architect_russian and his kit that let’s one quickly assemble a medieval self-defense combo.

Do you want to make it yourself? Come and join Fab Academy at Aalto Fablab! Link in bio.

Wulfie test cut with the waterjet cutter during our Fab Academy Wildcard Week introductions. The waterjet cutter can cut steel, stone and glass like a piece of cake. Have an idea how to use it?

Fab Academy Wildcard Week! The Zund cutter is one of the 100K machines that we are exploring this time. In this case a double-layer material is cut using a polygon blade to be later processed with an ultrasonic sewing machine to achieve an inflatable structure. Interesting?

Wings for the angel grannies 🧚🏻
.
The workshop master is able to help sometimes with making. In this case, she made the technical planning with costume designer and constructed 7 pairs of light weight wings. Support braces are hidden inside the garments. Hopefully we are able to post some scene from the BA film shootings a bit later!

Costume design: Riina Leea Nieminen
Making: Johanna Ilmarinen, Iida Ukkola.

Reposted from @nuorenvoimanliitto : Hei kirjoittaja, taiteilija, graafinen suunnittelija, koodaaja, muu! Kutkuttaako yhteistyötaide, äänekäs teksti tai liikkuva runous? Luova ideointitapahtuma Digital Literature Hackathon koittaa huhtikuussa ja ilmoittautuminen tapahtumaan on nyt avautunut! 💛

Viikonlopun aikana luodaan teoskonsepteja uusille digitaalisen kirjallisuuden teoksille. Digitaalisen kirjallisuuden laaja kirjo yltää muun muassa interaktiivisesta ja hypertekstimuotoisesta kirjallisuudesta elokuva- ja äänitaiteeseen, kineettiseen runouteen, tekstiä generoiviin teoksiin ja vr-todellisuudessa tapahtuvaan lukemiseen. Hackathon törmäyttää eri alojen tekijöitä toisiinsa ja tarjoaa alustan pidempiaikaisten yhteistyöverkostojen kehittymiselle monitaiteisella digitaalisen kirjallisuuden ja digitaalisen taiteen kentällä.

Kolmipäiväiseen webinaariin sisältyy konseptien suunnittelua monialaisissa työryhmissä, verkostoitumista, ideatreffejä ja yhteisöllisiä kahvituokioita. 🌻

Ilmoittautuminen on auki 1.3.-8.4. ja ilmoittautumislinkin löydät di.ki-hankkeen nettisivuilta: digitaalinenkirjallisuus.fi

Tapahtuman työskentelykielet ovat suomi ja englanti. Tapahtuma on osa Digitaalisen kirjallisuuden hanketta.
