2-Year Acting for Film Program

Strengthen Audition and Acting Skills at NYFA

NYFA’s 2-Year Acting for Film Program aims to strengthen the actor’s experience in front of the camera while deepening their relationship to their physical and vocal work. Through practical on-camera experience, an intense classwork regimen and scene work, students build confidence in their acting abilities.

Students also complete a range of hands-on projects, creating an acting reel that demonstrates their talents. Topics throughout the course include stage performance, speech and dialect, movement, character study, audition technique, new media, as well as Shakespeare.
