Earlier this semester, Cinematography students from New York Film Academy (NYFA) were able to shoot footage with a large, professional crane. The shoot took place on a beautiful sunny day in a park new our Burbank-based campus, and was overseen by NYFA-LA Chair of Cinematography Anthony B. Richmond, ASC, BSC, the BAFTA-winning director of photography whose credits include Don’t Look Now, The Man Who Fell to Earth, The Sandlot, Legally Blonde, and Sympathy for the Devil.
The students were able to work hands-on with the crane, getting cool, sweeping aerial shots that they could see from below on a monitor. Learning by doing and working hands-on with the same state-of-the-art equipment used by Hollywood better prepares students for work in the professional industry, and is a core value of NYFA’s educational principles.
