The Bloomington Academy of Film and Theatre is set to present more than 20 courses for this upcoming 2020 winter/spring session.
The session will run from Jan. 21 to May 9 with a 10-day hiatus for spring break. This session will be different than previous sessions with having class once a week rather than twice over the course of the season.
Some of the courses being offered include: acting; movie making, cinematography and film editing; animation and CGI; improv comedy; ballet (beginning and beyond) and voice lessons.
BAFT is also presenting two December workshops. The first is “Voice Over for Anime, Commercial, and Audiobook,” which will be from 3 to 6 p.m. Dec. 7 and will cover the basics for voice over performance. The second will be an editing workshop where students will edit a full BAFT film, “Confidentiality,” and gain hands-on experience of the industry and using Adobe Premiere Pro.
The organization is about to celebrate its one-year anniversary. Opening in January 2019 as a satellite company off Indiana-based film company Pigasus Pictures, the Academy offers professional training in various disciplines of entertainment including filmmaking, screenwriting, acting, dance, improv and musical theatre. Youth and adults of all ages and experience levels work with professionals to hone in on industry skills and use industry-standard equipment.
