  • New York Film Academy (NYFA) Broadcast Journalism Update – December 2019

    While workplace events are starting to give way for holiday events, there is still a lot happening in the New York Film Academy (NYFA) Broadcast Journalism department.

    We start off with good news from NYFA grad Clyde Gunter, who is starting a 13-month paid internship program next month at ESPN. Clyde will spend time assigned to various departments across the company, learning how this sports media giant works. At the conclusion, he’ll be given an opportunity to join the ESPN staff. Of course, this means moving to Connecticut where the ESPN “mothership” is located in Bristol. Congratulations, Clyde!

    Continuing with sports, alum Gillian Kemerer—after winning a fellowship to study Russian in Moscow—is now producing a new program for the Kontinental Hockey League (KHL), which has 24 member clubs in Belarus, China, Finland, Kazakhstan, Latvia, and Russia. After leaving NYFA, Gillian became the American programming chief (as well as lead US anchor/presenter) for Asset TV. But sports were always her first love, and now she’s found a way to combine hockey and TV. (I wonder how you say “slap shot” in Russian?)

    The Fall 2019 1-Year Broadcast Journalism students had a chance to go behind the scenes at NBC News recently. Thanks to Col. Jack Jacobs (USA, ret.), who is a contributor to MSNBC, they got to visit a network control room, go out onto the studio floor where a program was taking place, plus get their pictures taken on the set of NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt. By the time our students graduate, they’ve already seen major production facilities.

    Finally, we said goodbye to our Fall 8-Week Broadcast Journalism workshop students. As always, they came to NYFA with a variety of personal goals. They left with a deep skillset, and the knowledge that they are now multimedia journalists.

    New York Film Academy wishes the recent grads the best of luck!

    So what happens to student projects after New York Film Academy (NYFA) Broadcast Journalism students graduate? In the case of Alisa Arvind, they take on a life of their own. 

    Now a published author, in 2016 Alisa posted a video about the Holi Hai Festival in New York City on YouTube. The news package was produced for one of her Broadcast Journalism classes. Since then, it’s had 100,000+ views! 

    Three years ago she wrote: “They call it ‘the happiest festival of NYC!’ Holy Hai is an Indian festival of Spring where people come to dance their hearts out and get colorful.” And colorful it is… It wouldn’t surprise me if Alisa was still getting some of that color out of her hair…

    NYFA Broadcast Journalism grad Gillian Kemmerer, now based in Moscow, continues her journey through Eurasia. Most recently she was in China.

    More than 120 Under-11 players arrived at the Little Wolf Arena in Beijing last month to compete in an event run by the Kontinental Hockey League coaching staff. Gillian reports the kids were competing for the chance to head to Astana, Kazakhstan and Sochi, Russia for two tournaments this April.

    Kunlun Red Star is sending a youth team to the Gazprom Cup for the first time in franchise history. The young athletes participated in workshop activities, as well as actual games in which their skill levels were assessed.
