  • Italian Video Competition for NYFA Florence Scholarship

    Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

    florence-small-pixThe Italian Ministry of Education in collaboration with the New York Film Academy and Mecenate 90, announce the first edition of “La Tua Città in Primo Piano” (“Your Town Up Close”). The initiative is a video contest open to all Italian private and public high school students, in order to promote film culture, the development of new creative expressions and enhance the artistic talents of a younger generation.

    There will be two competitive sections: the first, “Nuovi registi in città” (“New Directors in the City”) addressed to individual students who will try to achieve a commercial (a video lasting a minimum of 30 seconds to a maximum of 3 minutes.) The video can be any theme, as long as it presents an important aspect of their city. The second is “Una scena per la tua città” (“A Scene For Your City”) addressed to the teachers to shoot a video with their classes. The topic of this video is an adaptation of a famous movie scene shot in Italy.

    Students can then share their videos via social media in order to get as many votes and as much exposure as possible.

    The ten videos with the most votes will be considered the finalists and a committee, consisting of representatives from NYFA and the Ministry, will select the winner. The winner will receive a scholarship for a 4 week filmmaking workshop and accommodation at the New York Film Academy in Florence.

  • Spend Winter Break in Rio Studying Filmmaking and Musical Theatre

    Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

    If you’re looking to escape the cold this Winter Break and you’re pursuing a career in the arts, then look no further. In association with Instituto Cal De Arte E Cultura, the New York Film Academy will be bringing its hands-on intensive 4-week Filmmaking Workshop and 4-week Musical Theatre Workshop to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil! The workshop will run from Jan 7, 2013 – Jan 28, 2013.

    In case you didn’t already know, Rio de Janeiro is a bustling and exciting city known for its incredible vistas and its sexy beaches including Copacabana, Ipanema and Leblon. Rio’s yearly carnival celebrations in February are world-renown. In addition to Rio’s two most famous landmarks, Sugarloaf Mountain and the statue of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado Mountain, other fantastic sights include the Sambódromo, the parade avenue with permanent fixed grandstands created specifically for Carnival, and the Tijuca Rain Forest.

    Enrollment
    The New York Film Academy has an open enrollment. Serious students from all backgrounds are welcome to apply. No previous experience is required. However, all New York Film Academy Workshops are extremely intensive. Students who enroll should be prepared to live and breathe their work during these workshops. Given the nature of filmmaking and the necessity of working in crews, students must be willing to devote themselves not only to their own projects, but to their classmates’ projects as well. As space is limited, we recommend early application to guarantee a place in the workshop of your choice.

    Language
    All courses are taught in English. However, interested students should take the opportunity to work on their conversational Portuguese during the program. This will enrich their understanding and enjoyment of Brazil.

    Daily Schedule
    Every workshop is full-time, with classes or shooting organized nearly every day of the week. The schedules are rigorous; however, students will have the opportunity to explore Rio de Janeiro.

    Equipment
    Students in the Filmmaking Workshops shoot High-Definition cameras and portable Lowel lighting packages for every shoot. All students edit digitally using Final Cut Pro on Macintosh computers. The equipment our Film Academy students use is comparable to that of the leading degree programs in the United States.

    Instructors
    In all our locales, our eclectic faculty for our Filmmaking workshops and Musical Theater workshops is comprised of experienced instructors who are professional filmmakers and Broadway musical theater actors. Many of our filmmaking instructors have Master of Fine Arts degrees from the most prestigious film programs in the United States. These include New York University, Columbia University, the University of Southern California, and UCLA. Our Musical Theater faculty has equally impressive credentials, and their Broadway experience allows students to learn from people who understand the requirements to work at the highest level.
