    This October, the New York Film Academy Gold Coast campus held a joined graduation screening night for Sept. 2016 Filmmakers and March 2017 Filmmaking at Event Cinemas in Pacific Fair.

    Students and guests gathered in the foyer, where they were photographed at our NYFA media wall before being ushered into the cinema to watch the end of year films. All graduating students screened incredibly diverse and high quality films that showcased their exceptional skills in the art of storytelling.

    Directing and Editing lecturer Trevor Hawkins stated, “It’s been a privilege to be part of these students’ journey in becoming future filmmakers. Filmmaking is a skilled craft. Having a good story also helps, and NYFA certainly gives a firm grounding on both counts. The result has been some of the most impressive end of year productions. I wish them all well and I hope to work with them again sometime in the future.”

    Deputy Chair of Filmmaking Brian Vining said, “The screening was a huge success, with a big turnout of current student filmmakers, family, supporters, cast members and alumni. We are very proud of the skills, motivation and talent of our graduating filmmakers.”

    Congratulations to the graduating students: Brad Smith, Emilie Chetty, Lynne Cairncross, Adam Anonuevo, Callum Taylor, Isaac Moit and Philip Paton. We are very proud of their skills, motivation and talent, and can’t wait to see them succeed in their chosen fields.

    This month, New York Film Academy graphic design students visited the studios of Milton Glaser and Mirko Ilic. This exciting opportunity was made possible by NYFA faculty Jee-eo​​n Lee, who worked at Glaser’s studio as a young designer.

    The students got a first-hand look at Glaser’s studio and works in progress. They were able to ask questions about the world of design and how Glaser see’s design going forward.

    Glaser is perhaps the most well known graphic designer working today, with an international presence and a reputation as a Renaissance man who has changed the graphic design industry with his uniquely intellectual and creative approach to animation and design. He is the creator of the I (heart) NY logo and was awarded the 2004 Lifetime Achievement Award from the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum.

    Students then visited with Mirko Ilic, where they were able to see works in progress and discuss design, activism and protest as seen through the lens of graphic design.

    Ilic’s diverse design career has included holding art director position for Time Magazine International Edition as well as the New York Times Op-Ed pages. He also runs his own firm, Mirk Ilic Corp. His work has been recognized with many awards and in in many collections, including the Smithsonian Museum and MoMA.

    So inspiring to hear such honest insight from both Milton and Mirko,” said NYFA Graphic Design Faculty Member Jee-Eon Lee.
