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.
A producer is one of the most crucial creators in the entertainment industry. This intensive, hands-on eight-week film production workshop covers the entire spectrum of the work of a producer — and adds a practical production element. Students produce their own short digital project. A complete overview of production fundamentals includes a detailed exploration of the creative producing process, the creation of a film package, story and script analysis, an introduction to production management (including industry standard Movie Magic scheduling and budgeting software), camera, lighting, and sound classes, the Avid editing system, as well as pitching, entertainment law, and case studies.
Film production workshop participants advance their skills and knowledge through creating their own individual project and by following production through from start to finish. Students write their own script, cast actors, schedule, budget, shoot, and edit on the Avid system, adding sound, music, and credits to realize a finished project.
Producing classes include: screenwriting, film finance, crowdfunding finance, directing for producers, casting and working with actors, line producing, practical camera and lighting, editing, post-production sound, color correction, digital distribution, and marketing — as well as film festival strategies.
The practical application of producing skills and techniques allows students to emerge from the course with their own completed digital film project.
