New York Film Academy Employee & Faculty Mid-Year Party in NYC

June 22, 2016

In the midst of a lively New York Film Academy event, overlooking the New York Harbor from expansive windows in the corner office, we spoke to Senior Executive Vice President, David Klein. “We all work together for so many hours each and every day,” he said. “I think it’s very important to spend some time with one’s colleagues to simply enjoy their company and see the lighter sides of everyone’s personalities. We have such a fantastic group of professionals who work so hard and are so dedicated to their jobs — they deserve to have some fun.”

Klein was referring to NYFA’s Mid-Year Faculty and Employee Party, held on the fifth floor of the New York campus’ Battery Place location. Commencing on the eve of a summer Wednesday, the party proved the success of a continued effort toward maintaining a positive community and strong working environment within NYFA.

Employees from a variety of departments were able to unwind and socialize before kicking off the Academy’s popular Summer Camp programs, which run until the end of August.

Caterers served tasty appetizers and a mixologist hand-crafted specialty mocktails and cocktails; the ever-beloved movie-themed photo booth, enshrined in its very own room, attracted many guests. Photography programs teaching assistants Ana-Paula Tizzi and Dayana Orellana operated the Canon 5D in the photo booth, including the special effect of a ring flash. See some of the fun that was had in the photo booth by staff and faculty in the gallery below!

Though NYFA faculty and staff had nothing but positive reviews for the catering and decor, they were most pleased by the opportunity to spend leisurely time together.
