    Looking for a video (a catchy, interesting one) to introduce non-theatre students to the importance of thoughtful costuming choices in a play. Suggestions?

    Here are a couple of clips from The Met. This is the original clip, and Here is a Behind the scenes feature. Has some additional info.

    Also, Mike Rowe did a spot on the costume department at Cirque on his show Someone's Got To Do It. It was the first episode, but finding a free copy has eluded me for years. Here is a link to Mike's Site mentioning it.

    I personally would love to see what videos other people use in the classroom.

    P.S. I also like this one for the insight behind Pinocchio's nose in Shrek

    P.P.S. The Broadway.com series Fly Girl is pretty insightful as well.

    the DreamsGirls showstoppers edition has some great costume and lighting interviews in their bonus video sections. I use to use this with my freshman design classes

    Thanks for the recommendation, peaceful. I'll put that title in my list of videos.
