    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.

    Facebooktwitterredditpinterestlinkedinmail

    Ana Paula ManzatoAs we mentioned before, New York Film Academy is proud to be in lovely Rio de Janeiro. Throughout the week we’re showcasing our wonderful NYFA Brazilian students. Today we spoke with Ana Paula Manzato to catch up on her experience thus far at our Universal Studios, Los Angeles campus.

    How did you find out about NYFA?

    I first found out about NYFA on the internet and looked further to learn more about it at the STB (Student Travel Bureau) in Brazil. Then, I e-mailed NYFA with my inquiries and got the information that I needed.

    What attracted you to NYFA?
    The school structure, the location, the talks that the school offers the students, and I found Gabby Egito’s blog on the internet with plenty of information about the school. Some pictures that drew my attention to the school even more.

    What was your journey to NYFA from Brazil? What is your story?
    I studied Advertising and Marketing in Brazil and participated in so me activities and projects at the university. I took part in the production of a video clip that won three awards, including best picture. Since then I have been interested in film, photography, and production.

    What has been your NYFA experience?
    My journey has been intense and excellent! We learn all about the production of a film, from inserting a roll of film into the camera, up to its final edition. We produce our own films, screenplays, and cast our actors. The teachers are great, attentive and always willing to help us.

    To people in Brazil who want to come to NYFA, do you have any advice?
    If you want to learn more about filmmaking, NYFA is the right place. With outstanding structure and excellent teachers, we can really learn all there is to know about filmmaking. You learn something new every day and you are in close contact with different cultures and people.
