This year, New York Film Academy’s top-ranked summer camps went virtual and campers in countries across Asia had the opportunity to make films, learn to act, and create animations under the umbrella of knowledgeable Los Angeles campus instructors who have worked in the industry for years, in interactive live classes, from the comfort of their home!
NYFA’s unique Filmmaking, Acting, and 3D Animation teen courses have become a dynamic new standard in visual and performing arts distance education. During the summer of 2020, more than 40 students from China, Japan, Singapore, India and so on attended the teen camps online offered from NYFA’s Los Angeles campus, located in the heart of Hollywood.
At their home, the campers could shoot, participate, and edit in film, acting, or animation projects using their smartphones and laptops. Students screened or displayed their final works at NYFA’s virtual graduation ceremony at the end of each program, varying from one to four weeks, along with popcorn at home and a virtual gathering of friends and family members.
Danny, a camper in China, share: “I wanted to say it was one of the best experiences of my life. You run such an awesome program and I am so grateful that I got to experience this summer program at home. I would like to experience NYFA’s in-person programs soon.”
