Students Pitch to President of Production at Marvel NYC

June 1, 2015


New York Film Academy’s graduating Fall Producing class participated in their first annual NYFA Pitch Fest in New York City.

Similar to the PitchFest that our Los Angeles students have been doing for several years now, students pitched their thesis projects to various faculty and notable industry professionals throughout the afternoon on two consecutive days.

Among the many notable guests was Dan Hank, formerly VP of Production for the AMC Network (Breaking Bad, Mad Men, The Walking Dead).


Dan was recently hired as President of Production at Marvel Film Studio’s (Avengers, Iron Man, Guardians of the Galaxy) New York office where he is now heading production on all of Marvel/Netflix NYC based new franchises (Daredevil, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, The Defenders).
