2-Day Holiday Filmmaking Camps

With a focus on NYFA’s signature style of learning-by-doing, students explore camera, lighting, and post-production, and work collaboratively to shoot and edit a short scene. During this 2-day program, students will be tasked with directing, writing, lighting, framing, filming, and producing a film. These essential skills will empower students to continue exploring their passion for filmmaking even after camp.

2-Day Holiday Acting for Film Camps

Holiday camp students are introduced to the basics of acting for film, scene study, and audition technique, while gaining hands-on experience rehearsing and filming a scene against the backdrop of Los Angeles or Battery Park in Manhattan. The immersive and active nature of our camp means that even in this short time, campers will develop new skills and come away with original work they can be proud of.
