This Summer we had the privilege of teaching Oscar Winning Director, Martin Scorsese’s daughter. The Goodfellas director must’ve passed on his love for filmmaking, as his young daughter decided to attend New York Film Academy‘s Summer Camp to hone her inherited filmmaking skills. We were thrilled when her biggest supporter and fan, Martin Scorsese, showed up to the graduation screening at the New York Film Academy. Marty was very impressed with all of the young talent on hand, especially given the fact that each student had only one week to shoot and edit the film. Scorsese mentioned he will be filming his upcoming movie, The Wolf of Wall Street in New York City very soon. You can bet we’ll be attending a screening of his next film, once it’s in the theaters.
