As is the case on many new film productions and cast rehearsals, actors and filmmakers typically like to meet each other beforehand in a casual, fun environment to break the ice and rid each other of any “getting to know you” awkwardness. We know our incoming Fall 2014 students would feel the same way, so we took them on a boat around the south tip of Manhattan! Along the tour were breathtaking views of landmarks such as The Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, Governor’s Island, and the skyscrapers of Manhattan’s Financial District.
Our mixture of diverse students mingled, laughed, and grabbed a few Instagram photos to show off to their friends’ back at home.
The majority of the long term students will be attending New York Film Academy’s nearby Battery Park campus located at 17 Battery Place.
