Bethany College @ MindFire will open its doors to the public. Tours will be offered so everyone can see firsthand how they can get an education in the digital arts. They’ll see demonstrations of our motion capture stage (the only one in the region) and work current and previous students created.
Bethany College @ MindFire teaches digital arts with professional-level equipment, computers and software. Students receive the kind of hands on training necessary to make it as a filmmaker, video game designer, recording engineer or 3D artist.
After a tour of the facilities, guests will be able to apply for admittance to the college. Classes start on August 21. Financial aid options are available.
With Bethany College @ MindFire, students get the chance to learn from professionals still working in the field. Professional projects and opportunities also pop up for our students through the semester as well. This gives students the opportunity to make much needed connections, enhance their resume and learn all at the same time.
MindFire is a place of learning, a place of discovery, a place of creation and a place of inspiration.

You can use the same industry-standard equipment used in places like Hollywood and New York.
