    Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

    Uzair Merchant has worked on some of the biggest franchises in the world. From Skyfall and Star Trek: Beyond to Fast & Furious 7 and Deadpool 2, Merchant has had an impressive roster of work, including his own personal projects, with his latest work displayed in the highly-anticipated CW series Superman & Lois.

    Taking the lead from its own universe of Superman (Supergirl, Smallville, and Superman: The Animated Series), The CW is back with Superman & Lois, a spin-off series of Supergirl that follows Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) and Lois (Elizabeth Tulloch) reprising their respective roles.

    Not much is known about how the series will play out, but it will feature Superman and Lois’ kids Jonathan and Jordan as they return to Smallville and are reacquainted with Lana Lang and her family.

    Filmmaking alum Uzair Merchant worked as the Assistant Art Director on the series, bringing the show to life through means of concept art, graphics, set design, props, builds, and construction. “Working on Superman & Lois has been pretty awesome I must say,” shared Merchant. “It’s lovely to dive into the Warner Bros. and DC Universe.”

    The show, which is still finishing up filming the first season, faced the added challenge of filming during the COVID-19 pandemic and had to adapt to and implement new COVID-safe protocols. “The crew [on Superman & Lois] is great and that’s something I always look for in a production. We’ve had COVID-19 procedures, which is what makes this production special being able to do all of this in the restrictions, but that’s been the challenge.”

    In addition to his work on Superman & Lois, the NYFA alum has done everything from commercials, corporate films, features, TV shows, music videos, and more.

    “The ability to build worlds and tell stories that can directly affect and influence people, cultures or voices was something that’s always fascinated me about filmmaking,” shared Merchant.

    “Coming to New York Film Academy to study film was a dream,” he revealed when asked about his time at NYFA. “I also wanted to experience studying traditional film, not just digital. Future students should come with an open mind and heart to dive into an unknown world, it’s important to immerse yourself into places out of your comfort zone. That’s why it’s film school. Experiment, explore and be honest with your art.”

    What’s next for the alum? Merchant has also worked on the upcoming film The Misfits, starring Pierce Brosnan, Tim Roth, and Jamie Chung. The alum has also been developing an entire universe over the last decade called Kreativ Universe from his company the Kri8.labs. Part of that cinematic universe will include Merchant’s script Black Rose that won multiple screenwriting awards and is currently in pre-production. Merchant is also producing a music track for the film called “Star Dust.”

    New York Film Academy congratulates Uzair Merchant for his outstanding work on Superman & Lois and looks forward to hearing more about the Filmmaking alum’s upcoming personal projects. Superman & Lois will premiere tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern on The CW.

    Teen Choice Awards
    The Teen Choice Awards ceremony aired on August 11, giving out its trademark surf board trophies to a slew of fan favorites, including Robert Downey, Jr. for his role as Tony Stark in Marvel’s epic crossover, Avengers: Endgame.

    The film also picked up Choice Action Movie, and co-stars Scarlett Johansson and Josh Brolin won Choice Action Movie Actress and Choice Movie Villain, respectively. Other big winners of the night included Spider-Man: Far From Home, Aladdin, After, and television shows Supernatural and Shadowhunters.

    Television series Stranger Things and Riverdale also earned multiple awards. Stranger Things, the Netflix nostalgic hit that is still going strong after its recent third season, has starred New York Film Academy (NYFA) master class instructor and board member Matthew Modine as well NYFA alum Matty Cardarople. Additionally, NYFA Filmmaking alum Eric Demeusy worked on the iconic opening credits of Stranger Things, for which he won an Emmy.

    Stranger Things won Choice Summer TV Show while Riverdale picked up Choice Drama TV Show. Last year, Riverdale stars Ashleigh Murray and Casey Cott spoke with NYFA students at our New York campus.

    Noah Centineo, who co-starred with NYFA alum Lana Condor in To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, won Choice Comedy Movie Actor for The Perfect Date, alongside co-star Laura Marano who won Choice Comedy Movie Actress.

  • New York Film Academy (NYFA) Celebrates Teen Choice Awards Nominations for NYFA Community 

    Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

    It’s not just the voters of the Golden Globes and Oscars that appreciate the work of the New York Film Academy (NYFA) community— if this year’s Teen Choice Awards nominees are any indication, NYFA alumni and guest speakers are also being recognized by younger audiences as well.

    The annual ceremony for the Teen Choice Awards has been held since 1999. This year, the awards show will take place in Hermosa Beach, California, though the performers and host have not been finalized yet. The ceremony will be held on August 11, 2019, with the late summer being the typical time of year winners receive their surfboards.

    The Teen Choice Awards don’t just honor actors and films—they cover a wide variety of talents including musicians, athletes, and fashionistas. Winners of the Teen Choice Awards receive a full-sized surfboard as their prize.

    Teen Choice Awards
    This year’s nominations were recently announced, with “Old Town Road” breakthrough artist Lil Nas X topping the list with five nominations and Post Malone right behind him with four.

    New York Film Academy alum Lana Condor scored a nomination for Choice Drama Movie Actress for her role in Netflix original film To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. The film is also up for Choice Drama Movie. Additionally, Condor is up for Choice Ship with romantic co-lead Noah Centineo; the two recently won Best Kiss at the MTV Movie & TV Awards.

    Lana CondorAmong the nominees for Choice Comedy Movie were Little, starring NYFA alum Issa Rae, and Crazy Rich Asians. The cast of Crazy Rich Asians were photographed by NYFA Filmmaking Workshop alum Rozette Rago while the film was at its buzziest. 

    Underwater superhero flick Aquaman was also nominated as a Choice Movie in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy category. Much of the film was shot at Village Roadshow Studios, where NYFA Gold Coast students can film their projects.

    Along with our alumni, NYFA guest speakers had cause to celebrate when the nominations were announced. Archie update Riverdale was nominated for Choice Drama TV Show. Riverdale stars Ashleigh Murray and Casey Cott spoke at our New York campus last year.Issa Rae

    The final season of Batman-prequel Gotham earned a nod for Choice Action TV Show. One of the castmembers, film and television star Michael Chiklis, was recently a guest speaker at NYFA’s Burbank-based campus. Dr. Spiros Michalakis, another recent NYFA-LA guest speaker, is the science consultant for several Marvel Cinematic Universe blockbusters, including Ant-Man and the Wasp, which was nominated for Choice Action Movie. NYFA 3D Animation & VFX alum Francesco Panzieri has worked on multiple MCU films as well, in the special effects department.

  • Bruckheimer Brings Fox Another Comic Book TV Show

    Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

    Lucifer Bruckheimer

    The devil came down to Fox, or at least it will, now that the network has ordered a pilot for Lucifer, an hour-long drama based on a comic book. Lucifer was created by industry kingpin Neil Gaiman, with Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg. The story concerns the devil himself retiring from running Hell and moving to sunny LA where he assists the police in punishing criminals.

    With an epic backstory and police procedural structure, it’s a no-brainer that mega producer Jerry Bruckheimer is adapting Lucifer for TV with his company Jerry Bruckheimer Television. Bruckheimer is behind other TV juggernauts like CSI, Without a Trace and Cold Case. He’s also currently producing HBO’s upcoming Cocaine Cowboys with Michael Bay.

    TV is becoming as populated by comic book characters as Hollywood movies. Lucifer is published by Vertigo, itself a DC publication. The series will join other DC properties on television like Arrow, Flash and Fox’s own Gotham, as well as CBS’s upcoming Supergirl series, also said to be part-procedural. Marvel has two series on ABC and will be adding several more to Netflix in the near future, starting with Daredevil.

  • Comic Characters Get Cast

    Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

    Sansa

    It’s a big day for fans of comic book adaptations, or for that matter, fans of Glee, Game of Thrones, or the recent Lifetime biopic of Aaliyah. Bryan Singer used his Twitter account this week to announce the three young stars of his latest X-Men sequel, X-Men Apocalypse. Apocalypse will be following the series reboot in Days of Future Past with a 1980s setting and starring returning cast members Jennifer Lawrence, Hugh Jackman, Michael Fassbender and James McAvoy.

    However, the series will be recasting its original characters—Cyclops, Storm and Jean Grey. James Marsden, Halle Berry and Famke Janssen are out, and Tye Sheridan, Alexandra Shipp, and Sophie Turner are in. Sheridan is best known for his roles in Matthew McConaughey vehicles Mud and Joe, Shipp starred as Aalyiah in the Lifetime biopic and Sophie Turner has been winning over more and more fans as determined survivor Sansa Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones.

    Don’t worry if you’re more of a DC than a Marvel fan—there’s news for you too. Supergirl, a new CBS series with elements of a police procedural (because it’s CBS, duh) has found its lead—Melissa Benoist. Benoist is best known for Glee, and has found a more serious audience recently with her role in Best Picture nominee Whiplash. Superman’s younger, blonder cousin should be showing up on TV sets this September.

    Finally, if that’s enough news to satiate your comic book appetite, there have been a couple of not-quite-casting stories this week. Marvel is supposedly courting 12 Years a Slave star Chiwetel Ejiofor for a “leading role” in their upcoming Avengers installment, Doctor Strange, which already has Oscar nom Benedict Cumberbatch set as the magician superhero. On the opposite side of the spectrum, Jake Gyllenhaal has taken himself out of the running to replace Tom Hardy, who recently dropped out of the leading role of DC’s Suicide Squad. The follow-up to this summer’s Batman V. Superman, Suicide Squad focuses on a team of supervillains who must save the world. While the production is struggling to find a new star, it’s now rumored that Ben Affleck’s Batman will make an appearance with Jared Leto’s Joker at some point in the film.

    And that’s all the comic book movie news there is… for the next twelve minutes.
