  • Fairytales Come True for BFA Filmmaking Student

    Cinder Pumpkin

    They say fairytales can come true. Well, for Fi Dieter, fairytales are opening major doors for a bright future in the entertainment industry. The New York Film Academy BFA Filmmaking student, of Prince of Arabia Entertainment and Stedica Film, won the prestigious Award of Excellence from The Best Shorts Film Competition, Best Student Film at the 2015 California Women’s Film Festival, Best Student Drama at the 2014 International Family Film Festival at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood, and has been an Official Selection in more than 10 festivals including the prestigious LA Shots Fest, the Playhouse West Film Festival, and the Women’s Director’s International Film Festival in New Dehli, India! The award was given for Dieter’s exciting fairytale adaptation drama short Cinder Pumpkin, which was her Intermediate Thesis Project at NYFA Los Angeles.

    Cinder Pumpkin features an exceptional storyline about a bright, socially-awkward girl named Cinder Ellen James (played by Jacquelynn Camden), who believes the only thing she needs for the gorgeous, unreachable Max (played by Travis Daniel Brown) to fall in love with her is one chance. With the help of her loyal friend Tom (played by Billy McCartney), Cinder is determined to take that chance herself. She trades glasses for a pair of high heels and experiences, for the first time, a world of teenage fantasies that makes her rediscover her value as a woman.

    “This award [Award of Excellence] honors not only the great amount of hard work put into our production, but also the growing voice of female directors,” says Dieter. “Cinder Pumpkin is about staying true to who you are even when the odds are against you, a fundamental lesson for all women who fight for gender equality.”

    Dieter is an award-winning Austrian filmmaker, actress and editor. Fi began acting in theater and commercials from an early age, always on a quest to find truth and depth in all she does.

    “Through my work, I intend to raise the voice of female filmmakers,” says Dieter. “I believe that little specific ‘somethings’ allow for a story to become universal and have the power to touch people. I aim to go beyond what is expected of young women to achieve in filmmaking. There isn’t a feeling I enjoy more than the satisfaction I get from proving there is more to me than what meets the eye.”

    Fi is currently in development on a three-part feature, based on a new take on the origins of Merlin the wizard, entitled Extraordinaire. It is a fantasy comedy with two endearing, magical characters whose major flaw is their inability to work together in times when their unity might make or break a kingdom. Extraordinaire Part One will be her thesis film.

  • New York Film Academy Visits Northrop Grumman and the James Webb Space Telescope

    NASA nyfa

    Faculty & Administration — Sonny Calderon, Eric Conner, Kelly Gardner, Rajiv Uttamchandani  |  Students — Sam Nieves – Jan 2014 BFA film. Tripp Townsend – Sept 2013 MFA prod, Laura Perez – Sept 2012 MFA film, Mariana Thome – Sept 2013 BFA film, Denis Kulikov – Sept 2012 AFA Film

    A group of New York Film Academy students received a rare opportunity to tour Northrop Grumman Corporation’s (www.northropgrumman.com) Los Angeles-based state-of-the-art facilities where some of the most vital components of the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) are being constructed. The New York Film Academy has recently signed a Space Act Agreement with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), which establishes a pivotal relationship between the two organizations to merge the visual arts and sciences to increase public awareness of JWST.

    The Webb Telescope is the world’s next generation space observatory and successor to the Hubble Space Telescope. It is the most powerful space telescope ever built, and will enable humankind to observe the most distant objects in the universe, provide insight on the formation of the first galaxies, and offer unprecedented accuracy in the characterization of atmospheres of planets outside of our solar system.

    During the tour, NYFA guests were in awe of the grandeur and majesty of JWST and its fantastic scientific mission. They viewed up close and personal JWST’s template Sunshield (pictured above), each layer of which is made of Kaplon and is as thin as a human hair. The Sunshield will allow the telescope to cool down to a temperature below 50 Kelvin (-370 degrees F or -223 degrees C), and is crucial to its successful observation of the most distant objects in the universe. They also viewed JWST’s mirror backplane, a structure that will house the telescope’s 18 hexagonal shaped mirror segments, and were given a virtual “tour of the universe” by Northrop Grumman astrophysicist Dr. Alberto Conti.

    After getting this ultra rare opportunity to view first-hand some of the most visually striking and complex scientific instruments in the world, the New York Film Academy’s students are hard at work producing a series of 30-second PSA’s to capture the attention of communities around the globe. “We are immensely proud that our students will help tell the story of this epic and groundbreaking mission,” says NYFA Dean of College Sonny Calderon. “This is a great opportunity for them to see first-hand the power of their storytelling on a global scale.”

  • NYFA Veteran Student Hired as Military Consultant for Shia LaBeouf

    nick jones shia labeouf

    Nick Jones, Jr., Gary Oldman and Shia LaBeouf

    You never know when or from whom your next opportunity will manifest. In such an arduous and competitive industry like filmmaking, it’s best to take advantage of every relationship and be aware of the potential of each encounter. One of our BFA Filmmaking students Nick Jones, Jr., a veteran who was able to fund his education through the G.I. Bill, has provided us with a prime example of this.

    While at the premiere of Mandela, Jones sparked a conversation with a woman sitting next to him in the theater, who happened to the wife of director Dito Montiel. While Dito and his wife were very friendly to Nick, he debated whether or not to bring the conversation to the next step — reaching out for professional guidance. “They disappeared in the crowd. I waited,” remembered Jones. “Then, something forced me to get up and chase him down in the lobby. He was super nice and we stayed in contact since. He helped me with my year one project. Giving me feedback on my writing and helping me find an editor through his post-production team.

    Nick Jones, Jr.

    Jones on the set of “Man Down”

    Fast forward a bit, Montiel gets tapped to direct Man Down, starring Shia LaBeouf, Gary Oldman and Kate Mara. Since LaBeouf was playing a former U.S. Marine, he immediately wanted to know who he could turn to for accurate technical and character advice to provide for an authentic film. Montiel remembered Jones and his work, and the fact that Jones had served in the Marines — a perfect match for the job.

    Now Jones is working as a military consultant on Man Down. While on the job, Jones noticed, “Whenever you have a script that is written by someone without military experience, there are a lot of assumptions and liberties taken on that front. But it’s normal because usually you have a consultant onboard to correct and fill in the blanks — kind of like the glue that brings it all together.”

    Being a rookie in such a valuable and respected position, Jones was understandably nervous. “Shia studied me like a book. It wasn’t just a question and answer relationship. We spent everyday with each other. He picked up on my verbiage, posture, life experiences, etc. Every night I would send him an email about the Marine Corps. Just random knowledge or current events. The most important thing was getting him in the mindset of a real Marine. How we think, how we feel about things, our reaction to current events, and the importance of brotherhood. You’re a product of your environment, and what I tried to do was create an environment that immersed him in the Corps. He trained with real Marines. He learned from real Marines. He became friends with real Marines. And I think that experience helped create a real persona for his character. The more real life experiences he could pull from, the better.”

    Jones suggested that veteran students looking to consult on films should maintain their relationships within the military. He also recalled some valuable advice from his Warrant Officer, “You don’t have to know the answer to everything, you just have to know where to find it.”

    While Nick had a bit of luck on his side in landing this coveted job, he is the one who made it happen with hard work and initiative.

  • ‘The Shorts Show’ Creator Finds a Knack for Poster Art

    hooligans

    After graduating from New York Film Academy’s Two-Year Acting for Film course, Corey Scott Rutledge created a comedy sketch group with his friends and fellow NYFA graduates Nick Snow, Brooks Russell, Luis Alarcon, Dirk Otis, Grant Lancaster and Dave Steffey.

    The Shorts Show, which has amassed 76 videos and well over 1 million views since its creation, has hilariously parodied everything from Game of Thrones to Matthew McConaughey being…well Matthew McConaughey. Given not only the quantity of content but the quality of their videos, it’s only a matter of time until these guys land a show on a network like Comedy Central.

    “Attending NYFA was very important to what I have been able to do,” says The Shorts Show creator Corey Rutledge. “Not only meeting those who I currently work with now on the show but also networking into so many different projects while there has landed me projects both acting and design wise post graduation.”

    In addition to Corey’s ability to parody trends in pop-culture, he’s a very talented graphic designer. Before his acting studies at NYFA, Corey earned his computer graphics degree back home in Michigan. His graphic design skills have recently become a major factor in his life, once again. With so many of his peers looking for concept art for their short films, he became the go-to guy for stellar movie posters like The Hooligans one in this post. As time went on, he thought it was common sense to start offering his services to filmmakers outside of his network. Now, he’d be killing two birds with one stone, working on both of his passions at once with poster art.

    He’s quickly built a portfolio and a reputation for delivering some really cool posters for students and independent filmmakers. If you’re looking to get your short or indie feature to stand out amongst the crowd with a solid poster, check out Corey’s work on his website or shoot him an email about his services at theshortsshow@gmail.com.

  • Producing Grad Khalid Hasan Khan Making Waves in Pakistan with ‘Hotal’

    Meera as Kashika in Hotal

    Meera as Kashika in Hotal

    Growing up in Pakistan on Hollywood films, TV and even cartoons, New York Film Academy Producing graduate Khalid Hasan Khan found his venture to NYFA Los Angeles’ film school inevitable. It was at the Academy that Hasan learned the craft of filmmaking and began to develop the basis for his award-winning film, Hotal. The independent Pakistani feature film is a psycho-thriller about an Indian woman who ends up in a hotel where she meets her unborn sister. In addition to its original storytelling, Hotal is completely groundbreaking in that it is the first Hindi feature film shot outside the Indian Bollywood industry.

    The film boasts Lollywood star Meera and singer Jasmine Sandlas, who sings her “Mombatti” song in the film. After winning Best Film and Best Actress (Meera) at the Delhi International Film Festival, Hotal is arguably the most talked about film in Pakistan.

    The Hindu wrote, “The screenplay by Khalid Hasan is being viewed as a bold attempt which will go a long way in making Pakistan’s small yet rapidly growing industry more creative and original.”

    Hotal Deal

    Khalid Hasad Khan inking a deal with IMGC

    Before Khalid attended NYFA, he claims he had no real desire to write and direct a feature length film. Once he had the opportunity to experience the filmmaking process from start to finish in a hands-on environment, his outlook changed. “It dawned upon me that I can do everything from start to scratch,” said Khalid. “I have learnt a lot by doing hands-on filmmaking during my graduation program.”

    Indeed he did. Khalid not only developed an original screenplay, he was able to attach significant talent from Pakistan in what is now an award-winning film with a global distribution deal. “I owe it all to my faculty and management,” added Khalid.

    Pakistan’s distributor, IMGC Global Entertainment has acquired the global distribution deal for Hotal, which is set to be released on March 13, 2015. Interestingly enough, Khalid admitted he was wearing his NYFA jacket when he officially inked the distribution deal with Chairman, Sheikh Amjad Rashid.

    Have a look at the trailer for Hotal and let us know what you think!
