New York Film Academy's reputable hands-on Film Camps teach the next generation of filmmakers the fundamental elements of visual storytelling. Each student writes, shoots, directs and edits his or her own films. Combining in class instruction and on-set production, students will immediately learn how to use the Arriflex 16-S or a 24P digital video camera while learning proper loading, operation and maintenance of the camera.
Paris is an incredibly exciting place to live in and make films. It is the birthplace of the movies, and the city that still loves them the most. A century after the first experiments with motion pictures took place there, and almost 50 years since the French New Wave changed the way we look at movies, our students continue the tradition of capturing this city and the stories it generates on film. We have found that New York Film Academy students thrive in Paris, and for many it becomes a second home. The Academy will conduct its Four and Six-Week Filmmaking, Digital Filmmaking and Acting Workshops at the French National Film School of France (La Fémis), one of world’s most elite film institutes.
