Directing commercials can not only be a creative and rewarding career, it can also propel directors into the world of feature directing. Just have a look at David Fincher or Michel Gondry’s early career in the film business.

One of our 8-Week Filmmaking graduates, Francisco Miranda, directed a commercial in his hometown of Portugal, which recently won the grand prize in the prestigious “Galp Create” publicity contest. The video is a 30 second spot for Tangerina.

“I attribute a huge part of this success to the New York Film Academy,” said Miranda. “Back in school, I gained a lot of knowledge in the classes that I was part of. The movies that I made at NYFA with my fellow students were very important to improve my craft and become a director.”

Have a look at Miranda’s award-winning spot below!
