• NYFA Works with Korean Producers and Directors Educational Institute at Youtube LA


    On Tuesday, October 25th, the New York Film Academy helped bring cultures together by working alongside the Korean Producers and Directors Educational Institute (KPDE) at the YouTube Space in Los Angeles. The producers traveled to America to learn about the American style of development, streaming, and television audiences.

    The tour of YouTube Space included all the highlights. In the first studio, they visited there was a podium with a mock presidential seal at the far end of the room. This set was housed in one of the smaller studios, but the group had fun pretending to address the nation.

    The next studio they visited was the largest in the building. Studio one is decked out with a hanging light rig, sound absorbing floors, and a three hundred and sixty-degree catwalk. Sets that have been housed in this space include half an airplane and a two-story hotel.

    Other highlights of the trip include the gear room which holds a RED Dragon, a green screen room where Weezer shot a music video and the control room where live streams are produced.

    The New York Film Academy would like to thank YouTube Space for hosting us and the Korean Producers and Director’s Educational Institute. If you’d like to learn more about YouTube Space LA and their various locations around the world click here.

  • Korean Artist Jun Yong-Bok Offers Painting for NYFA

    NYFA Founder Jerry Sherlock with Jun Yong-bok

    This Friday, the New York Film Academy welcomed famous Korean artist Jun Yong-bok, who presented NYFA Founder Jerry Sherlock and President Michael Young with an original piece of art entitled “Mountain.”

    While Yong-bok’s art is rooted in traditional Korean lacquer art, he also developed his own unique techniques through his experience of different cultures and their art.

    Yong-bok offered the painting, made with pieces of mother of pearl, for NYFA’s New York new 26 Broadway location in the financial district of Manhattan. He hopes to continue see the Academy grow as his son Hyunmin Jun attends a 1 year screenwriting course. From there, his son plans on heading to Los Angeles for an MFA in Screenwriting.

    We’d like to whole-heartedly thank Jun Yong-bok for this impressive gift, and wish his son the best of luck as he begins his career as a screenwriter!
