3-Week Acting for Film Workshop


Want to study acting in some of the most beautiful places in the world? At the New York Film Academy, acting students can spend three weeks immersed in an intensive, hands-on course where they can learn to perform on set through, real-world experience. Any actor knows that giving a believable performance on a modern set isn’t as simple as it looks; they must maintain their composure while dozens of crewmembers whirl about, twelve kilowatt lights bore into the eyes, and focus tape is pulled to the actor's cheek. Through all of this clutter and distraction the actor is still expected to give a believable and moving performance. Combining classes and lectures from NYFA’s faculty of working industry professionals with tangible practice, students in the 3-Week Acting for Film Workshop will learn the essential skills they need to create a performance on screen.


The three-week acting workshop provides students with a strong foundation of acting skills with a specific focus on acting for film. The three-week length fits conveniently into many students’ yearly schedules, allowing aspiring performers of all backgrounds to learn more in less time with this full-time, intensive program. Students must be prepared to make a serious commitment to complete the course.

Classes emphasize the basic elements of the craft of acting using key on-camera techniques, 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.

No significant prior experience or knowledge is required. The program brings everyone to the same level very quickly, beginning with the fundamentals while also filling in the inevitable gaps in the understanding of those with some prior experience. Space in the three-week acting for film workshop is limited - don’t wait, apply today!
