  • Los Angeles Photography & Documentary Students Visit Arizona

    grand canyon
    DAY ONE

    Students from the Documentary and Photography Departments from New York Film Academy’s Los Angeles campus recently gathered before the crack of dawn to catch a flight to Phoenix, AZ on a six- day film and photo expedition led by Documentary Chair Barbara Multer-Wellin, and Photo Instructor Amanda Rowan.

    After landing in Phoenix and a scenic bus ride, the first filming location was the Orpheum Theater in Flagstaff, AZ where a line-up of Native American musicians and activists gathered to perform at RUMBLE ON THE MOUNTAIN II, an event held to protect tribal water rights. The concert included blessings by tribal elders, a traditional dance performance and a dynamic set by the Navajo brother/sister punk rock duo Sihasin. It was a long day filled with excitement, entertainment, and great opportunities for capturing on film a beautiful cultural experience.

    DAY TWO
    On Day Two, the NYFA team was granted access to the kiva exhibit at the Museum of Northern Arizona. A Kiva is a traditional sacred space. There they filmed artist and musician Ed Kabotie whose father painted the historical mural on the walls of the Kiva. Ed spoke about the meaning of the mural’s images and the native people’s ongoing fight to protect their ancestral lands. Later, Jeneda and Clayson Benally, of Sihasin, arrived for a joint interview about their efforts to combine traditional music with hard edged rock and roll with their message of “Sihasin” (a Navajo word meaning “Hope”). Day Two ended with a sunset tour of the magnificent Grand Canyon.

    DAY THREE
    NYFA LA’s Documentary and Photo expedition left the beautiful Flagstaff, AZ to head back to Phoenix. In Phoenix, NYFA students were welcomed at Canyon Records, the oldest and biggest record label devoted to Native American music in the United States. First, the NYFA students filmed and photographed Canyon Records artist, Tony Duncan. Duncan is both a renowned Native American flute player and a World Champion hoop dancer. Dressed in traditional regalia, Tony Duncan performed a ceremonial hoop dance at the label’s insert stage for NYFA’s cameras. Duncan then went into the studio to record a passage for his new album on three different traditional flutes. The day ended with sit down interviews with Duncan and Canyon Records owner Robert Doyle. After wrap, everyone hopped on the bus and headed to downtown Phoenix for a little exploration and recreation!
    pony express
    DAY FOUR
    The NYFA bus left Phoenix for a scenic drive through cacti, pine and scrub brush to the historic old West town of Holbrook, AZ. Holbrook is the starting point for the Hashknife Pony Express, an annual recreation of the legendary delivery of the mail by horseback. For 58 years, men from the Hashknife Search and Rescue Team have ridden the 200 miles from Holbrook to Scottsdale, AZ.  The NYFA team arrived to film and photograph the Hashknife riders, all on horseback, being sworn in as official carriers of the U.S. Postal Service at the old Navajo County Courthouse in Holbrook. That night, the NYFA team met the riders and people from the town of Holbrook at the send-off dinner held at the local Elks Lodge.

    DAY FIVE
    NYFA’s Documentary and Photography students met the Hashknife Pony Express riders at 7:00 AM at the stables in Holbrook to film them mounting up and to take a group portrait. The 200-mile ride is run like a relay race. Teams of two riders and two horses work together. The first man rides one mile, carrying a canvas bag of mail. The second rider waits at the mile marker, where they must exchange the heavy bag from horse to horse with the cry of “Hashknife!” (A hashknife is a curved blade used by chuck wagon cooks to tenderize meat.) The NYFA filmmakers and photographers were split up among the various teams to document the event from many different angles and points of view. The ride ended for the day when the riders arrived in formation at the Payson, AZ post office to deliver the mail. They were greeted by post office officials and an enthusiastic crowd.

    DAY SIX
    On the last day of NYFA Los Angeles’ Arizona adventure, documentary and photography students spent the morning downloading footage and editing the photographs taken during the past five days. After lunch, they met up with the Hashknife riders as they made camp at the Verde River just outside Scottsdale, AZ. The students took portraits of and interviewed the riders. As the riders and horses settled in for the night and the cooks fired up the barbecue, the NYFA team said their good-byes, packed their gear for travel, and rode the bus to the Phoenix airport for the flight back to Los Angeles. Now the work of cutting short documentaries out of the great material gathered in Arizona begins.

  • NYFA Conducts Workshops for Military Soldiers

    On January 9, The New York Film Academy Los Angeles campus facilitated a unique day of workshops for more than twenty-five soldiers from the 201st and 222nd Public Affairs detachments.

    With the support of the New York Film Academy’s Foundation, the College was honored to have the opportunity to work with this exemplary group of servicemembers.

    The 201st and 222nd units are both based out of Bell, CA and consist of public affairs officers, combat photographers, combat correspondents and broadcast specialists who are involved in creating, filming, reporting, hosting and editing news and entertainment radio and television program.

    These groups are primarily responsible for participating in and supervising the operation of audio or video news for the American Forces Network (AFN), The Pentagon Channel or Armed Forces Radio and Television Service (AFRTS). Combat Correspondents, or broadcast journalists in the 222nd prepare scripts and news copy for radio and television programs and participate as hosts, announcers, masters of ceremonies, and actors in radio and television broadcasts. The 222nd has a long, proud history of telling soldiers’ stories as they serve all over the world. Most recently, the 222nd supported the public affairs mission with two yearlong tours of duty in Baghdad, Iraq.

    The classes were taught by NYFA instructors in the College’s Filmmaking Department, who have decades of experience in the industry. Documentary Chair, Barbara Multer-Wellin led the program. The first workshop provided an overview on essential interview techniques and how to formulate intriguing interview questions, which were then used to dialogue with special guests John Henry and Nick Searcy.

    John Henry is the co-founder of Purple Star Veterans and families, a non-profit created to assist struggling transitioning veterans and their families, and Nick Searcy is a renowned actor who has starred on productions such as: Tigerland, Castaway, The Fugitive, and most current ongoing TV series (Justified). The soldiers interviewed the gentlemen utilizing the techniques and interview skills they procured through the workshop.

    After the interview techniques session the participants divided into two groups for instruction on camera and lighting techniques and how to properly light a set for an interview and on the importance of sound and how to achieve the best sound quality for a high quality interview. Lance Fisher (Filmmaking Instructor) instructed one group and the other was taught sound by James Coburn (Filmmaking Instructor).

    At the end of the intense training day, Christopher Cardoza, a Specialist assigned to the 201st Public Affairs Detachment stated, “This experience was without a doubt, one of the most honorable moments of my military career. I was able to practice the proper tools of Networking, Building Relationships, and having a Rolodex of greatness!” In addition to his service at the 201st, Specialist Cardoza is a BFA student at NYFA and assisted the College’s Veterans Service staff in putting this successful event together.

    These workshops were tailored for our 201st and 222nd guests, and based on the New York Film Academy’s mission to provide the most hands-on instruction in the world and the participating members from the 201st and 222nd Public Affairs Detachment soldiers were very thankful for the trainings, which provided the opportunity to gain a large amount of knowledge that will be instrumental in the growth of their careers.

  • Cinematography Chair Anthony Richmond Remembers David Bowie from “The Man Who Fell to Earth”

    “I always had a repulsive need to be something more than human.” Over the span of sixty nine years, the recently deceased legend of music, art, film, theatre and pop culture, David Bowie was indeed as extraordinary as he set out to be. Always setting the trends and breaking the boundaries as an artist, the entertainment icon and pioneer of glam rock’s legacy will live on forever.

    david bowie

    David Bowie on set of “The Man Who Fell to Earth”

    “He was a major, major artist,” said New York Film Academy Cinematography Chair, Anthony Richmond, who was Director of Photography on the Nicolas Roeg film The Man Who Fell to Earth, which starred Bowie as a humanoid alien who comes to Earth to get water for his dying planet. “He just kept reinventing himself.”

    The 1976 British sci-fi film, which was actually shot in New Mexico, was originally cast for Peter O’ Toole. However, those who know the movie—which maintains its strong cult following due to its use of surreal imagery and unforgettable Bowie performances—know that it wouldn’t be nearly the same without him. “I don’t think there was another person who could play that part,” said Richmond. “Bowie was a bit like an alien himself—bringing his own artistry to the film.”


    The British film was Richmond’s first film in which he spent the entire shoot in America. While on set, Richmond and director Nicolas Roeg would play some of Bowie’s hits, especially “Young Americans,” which was one of his more recent songs that Richmond was quite fond of.

    Bowie would spend almost eight hours each morning getting into his alien costume. In fact, it was Richmond’s wife at the time who spent all morning dolling up Bowie.

    “Unlike most rock stars, Bowie was incredibly professional,” said Richmond, a man who is no stranger to working with rock legends. Richmond was responsible for photography on the seminal British music scene of the late 60’s. He shot The Rolling Stones classic, “Sympathy For The Devil” for Jean-Luc Godard, and then collaborated with Michael Lindsey Hogg on The Rolling Stones’ “Rock And Roll Circus” and the Beatles’ “Let It Be.” His other rock and roll credits include: The Who’s “The Kids Are Alright,” as well as the Documentary “Glastonbury Fayre.”

    David Bowie, Nicolas Roeg and Anthony Richmond

    Like most of us, Richmond was a huge fan of Bowie’s work and would frequently see him in concert and listen to his music whenever he could.

    “I was deeply saddened when I read the news this morning. We lost one of the most extraordinary artists of our time.”

    “It was a pleasure meeting the China Zhejiang Film and Media group,” said NYFA’s Director of Chinese Social Media, Nancy Shen. “NYFA is proud to serve the high-end Film and Television training program members in their pursuit of a world-class filmmaking education.”

    Indeed it was a thrill welcoming budding young talent from China, and we hope to meet with them and other international students in the near future!

  • Anthony Richmond Holds Crane and Jib Workshop

    During their third semester, the MFA Cinematography students at New York Film Academy have a full schedule of workshops to keep them busy. With the Master’s Lighting Workshop, the Underwater Camera Workshop and the Alexa Workshop, the students are given an opportunity work with advanced professional tools and learn how to integrate them into a narrative film production.

    In addition to these courses, the week-long Crane & Jib Workshop gives students the opportunity to work with a variety of camera movement systems from a broad range of the top manufacturers including J.L Fisher, Chapman/Leonard, and Service Vision. Cinematography department chair Anthony Richmond, ASC, BSC led the class, introducing the students to a range of practical techniques for using both remote cranes and jib arms to construct powerful, dynamic shots. Richmond pushed the students to develop their operating skills using both the traditional geared head and the remote crane heads that are based on this classic design.

    crane

    For the last day of the workshop, the class put their new set of skills to work on the Crane & Jib Practicum. They used the 45-foot Scorpion Crane, equipped with a Scorpion Remote Head, a RED Epic Dragon digital cinema camera, a Cooke zoom lens and a remote focus and iris system. With the camera flying on the crane throughout the shoot, the class captured a wide variety of moving shots designed to tell the story in a dynamic style.

    By the end of the workshop, the MFA Cinematography students had a greater understanding of how to design visually stunning shots, and how to use professional tools to execute their ideas. As they look forward to next semester, these cinematographers will have a new set of skills to take their films thesis films to the next level.

    Guest Instructor, retired NY Police captain and U.S. Marine Corps veteran, Joe Lisi takes questions from participants after a day of filming.

    In the spirit of the Holiday Season, the New York Film Academy believes giving back to those who served and continue to serve our country in the military is of great importance. That is why NYFA founder, Jerry Sherlock, himself a veteran, was delighted that so many members of our nation’s armed forces have taken the opportunity to study and develop their passion in the visual and performing arts at NYFA’s campuses in New York City, Los Angeles, and South Beach, Florida.

    To further the College’s commitment to supporting our nation’s servicemembers on a broader scale, NYFA and the NYFA Office of Veterans Services developed a new program offering multiple free 1-day Master Classes—taught by media and entertainment industry luminaries—to veterans and active duty military members. This ongoing program will take place at all three NYFA domestic campuses.

    On December 12th, 2015, veterans and active duty military members from the Tristate area attended an exclusive 1-day Acting & Filmmaking workshop at the New York Film Academy’s beautiful campus in downtown Manhattan. In addition to the intensive hands-on master classes, the invited guests also had the privilege of an intimate sit-down lunch with the Chair of the Veterans Advancement Program, Medal of Honor recipient and NBC/MSNBC on-air personality, Colonel Jack Jacobs. As a finale for the day of instruction and filming, the students met with the renowned film and television actor—and U.S. Marine veteran— Joe Lisi for a critique of their films and a discussion about the industry and career paths.

    The ambitious goal of teaching participants the basics: framing the “shot,” rehearsing lines, directing actors, and filming—all in one day—was successfully implemented by NYFA faculty, Blanche Baker (Acting), Jonathan Whittaker (Filmmaking) and Bart Mastronardi (Cinematography) who each relied on the proven method of “hands-on,” learning by doing.

  • Highlights from the 2015 NYFA Broadcast Journalism School

    You have probably noticed that, as the holidays approach, many news programs are offering “year in review” stories. There are two reasons for this… First, from a news perspective, things are slow. Even the President of the United States is taking two weeks of vacation. Second, among those also on vacation are a large number of reporters, producers and anchors who normally staff TV news programs. Retrospective stories require little new shooting, and can be done well prior to their air date.

    In that great tradition, here is a look back at the year 2015 and what it held for NYFA Broadcast Journalism alumni, as well as our current students.
