One of the biggest stories in New York City last week was a special parade honoring the members of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team, following their victory at the World Cup. The parade was also an opportunity for our New York Film Academy Broadcast Journalism students to develop their journalism skills. The Summer Session students began class on Monday, and by Friday they were shooting footage of an actual news event. It’s an example of the “hands-on” nature of coursework at NYFA

Members of the class come from England, Brazil, India, Russia and Scotland, as well as Washington state, Ohio and New York. One of them is Starla Sampaco, a university student majoring in journalism, who came to NYFA to deepen her broadcast journalism skill set. The class also includes several practicing journalists.
