Dreams. We all have them, what we want to do, what we wish we could do, and how we might do it. But for many of us, our dream careers slip out of our hands. Due to many different factors, so many people today spend their lives wishing they had done something different. For me personally, my dream is to make props and costumes for Hollywood films. That’s my passion, and I intend on living that dream. I began attending Savannah College of Art and Design because I knew that this school would help me reach my goal. I hope that through the education I receive and the career I choose, I could reinvent the role costumes play in the film industry. So many times I hear about filmmakers telling their prop departments, “As long as the outside looks fine”, and it saddens me to know that so many costumers make subpar work for the sake of price. I want to use my talent to push people I work with to make the highest quality garments, to spend that extra 2 hours adding detail here and there. Because even if an audience never sees the sweat and tears you poured into your work, you will see it, you’ll see the endless nights of stressful work. Then you will see all of it together in a beautiful piece that is providing entertainment for everyone. And it’ll be worth all of it, because our dreams are worth it.
