  • NYFA Gold Coast Hosts Advanced April ’17 Actors Mid Year Screening


    This August, the New York Film Academy Gold Coast Campus held the Advanced April 2017 Acting for Film mid-year screening showcase. As a part of NYFA Gold Coast’s continued commitment to hands-on learning, the screening showcase provides acting for film students with the experience and opportunity to share their work with invited guests.

    Directed by Senior Acting Lecturer, Adam Couper, the students screened their 30-minute TV pilot “Eternity” in the Southport Campus theatre.

    Mr. Adam Couper states, “It’s one thing for student actors to work on existing scenes from film and television, but part of the purpose of this pilot exercise was to involve them in creating their characters from the ground up. And they all embraced the process with great verve, to populate the pilot with truly unique characters telling a story they made their own.”
