Filmmaking:
NYFA Florence's Filmmaking course provides students with a thorough introduction to the foundations of film craft. This four week program is structured around the production of three short films of increasing complexity. Students will be introduced to the traditional concepts of shooting motion picture film and will apply this foundation of knowledge to contemporary practices of shooting with digital technology. Classes and hands-on workshops are held throughout the week and some weekends are reserved for additional classes or shooting. Time will be required outside of class for writing, location scouting, casting, and editing. The fourth week is devoted to shooting and editing the final film, culminating in the final screening.

Acting for Film:
The Acting for Film course allows students to participate in a short training workshop that demands full immersion into learning the craft of acting. Classes emphasize the basic elements of the craft of acting using Stanislavski's System, scene study, and monologue work as starting points. In conjunction with these classes, students participate in courses aimed specifically at training the actor for the technical requirements of acting on a film set.

Transcript:
Upon program completion, students will receive a transcript issued directly from the New York Film Academy. Students requiring a U.S. transcript will have the option to request a supplemental transcript from Endicott College who serves as the School of Record for the New York Film Academy. For more information on this option, please contact ISA.
