Seventeen students were recently admitted to our new Charles C. Baum Film and Visual Storytelling Program starting this fall. The new film department will incorporate much of what BSA learned during last summer’s pilot workshop. Baltimore Fishbowl profiled the budding program:
“Shannon Hutchinson, a senior in the Baltimore School for the Arts’ acting program, is used to playing characters on stage and screen. Last summer, however, she had a chance to learn just how much work goes on behind the scenes to make a good film, thanks to a pilot program offered by her school.
“Sometimes it’s hard to conceptualize until you’re behind the camera seeing what the frame actually is,” she said.
This fall, the prestigious Baltimore School for the Arts in Mount Vernon will launch its Film and Visual Storytelling program with an inaugural class of 17 ninth-graders. The school announced the new program in January, accompanied by the news that founder Mark Joseph and his wife, Patricia, had donated no less than $3 million to fund it.”
