About New York Film Academy
Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Bruce Springsteen, Al Pacino, Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, and Jodie Foster are among the many figures in the film industry who have sent their family members to study at the New York Film Academy. New York Film Academy is honored to be the film and acting school of choice of these other luminaries including Kevin Kline, Pierce Brosnan, Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins, Bono (U2), directors Stephen Frears, Peter Bogdanovich, Roger Donaldson and James L. Brooks. The New York Film Academy was founded on the philosophy that “learning by doing” combined with best industry practices is more valuable than years of theoretical study for filmmakers and actors. This educational model allows students to achieve more in less time than at all other film or acting schools in the world. The New York Film Academy offers camps, short-term workshops, conservatory-style programs, and degree programs. The Academy’s one- and two-year conservatory-style programs include topics in Filmmaking, Acting for Film, Producing, Screenwriting, 3D Animation, Cinematography, Broadcast Journalism, Photography, Graphic Design, Musical Theatre, and Game Design; as well as an accelerated three-year Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree programs in Filmmaking, Acting for Film, Producing, Screenwriting, 3D Animation, Graphic Design, and Game Design, and a Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Media Studies. The New York Film Academy also offers two-year Master of Fine Arts (MFA) degrees in Filmmaking, Acting for Film, Screenwriting, Producing, Cinematography, Documentary, Game Design and Photography, and two-year Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degrees in Filmmaking, Acting for Film, Producing, Screenwriting and Game Design, and a Master of Arts (MA) in Film and Media Production at Los Angeles campus. Each program is structured for students who want intensive training from award-winning faculty, using professional facilities and equipment starting their first day of classes; better preparing them for a career in the motion picture and entertainment industries. In the first year of any of filmmaking programs each film school student will write, shoot, direct and edit eight films and work as crew on 28 more! Register in any of world-class programs and get the experience you need to excel in your field.
This workshop runs from early December until late January with a two-week holiday break in the middle. During the break, students will be able to do preproduction work for their Final Film. This program follows the 6-Week Filmmaking Workshop curriculum. In acknowledgment of the importance of the film actor’s job, and in support of the skills required to do the job brilliantly, the New York Film Academy is proud to offer its special Holiday Acting for Film Workshop.
The workshop is comprised of a two-week portion followed by a four-week portion, with a two-week break from Dec. 22 to Jan. 6. The first three weeks concentrate on the foundations of acting, using training techniques rooted in the theatre, but which are applicable to screen acting. Students participate in a wide array of core classes that introduce them to finding the actor within, while simultaneously training their instrument to do the kind of technical, emotional, and physical work necessary for film acting.
In the second portion of the workshop, the core classes continue as the students’ focus intensifies on applying the techniques they have learned to more elaborate scene work, on-camera exercises, and film shoots — all designed to develop and hone their screen-acting ability. At several points in both portions of the workshop, each student performs in video shoots. In addition, a variety of classes are given in order to broaden students’ knowledge of acting techniques, the film business, and many different film crafts.
