|Description:||The Motion Picture Arts option of the Fine Arts program was made available in September 2013. The priority of the Motion Picture Arts Production option is to prepare students for traditional careers in the production of theatrical features, TV programs, and in advertising. Until recently, the platforms for this traditional media was once limited to movie theatres, broadcast TV, and home-video. With the introduction of the communications revolution brought about by the Internet, new platforms are constantly being introduced, such as smartphones, tablet computers, etc. Each of these platforms then generates demand for supplementary content, thus generating more opportunity for employment for motion picture artists.
The BFA program at Thorneloe/Laurentian considers each of its disciplines primarily as a means of artistic expression, and is therefore more practice-based than theory-based. Essentially, students are prepared for careers as professional artists. In addition, students are not only provided with a solid foundation in the history and traditions of their chosen disciplines, but with the tools to navigate the financial and commercial aspects of their careers. The disciplines within the BFA program allow for the examination and creative expression of our intellectual, emotional, and physical worlds. In doing so, students in the BFA program develop skills in communication, aesthetics, interpretation, critical thinking, management, organization and leadership.
