12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp
for Kids


Locations: New York City and Los Angeles
Hours: 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. (12 Consecutive Saturdays)

Offered over the course of 12 Saturdays during the school year, our 12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp encourages kids to pursue their acting dreams and offers experiential lessons on how to perform on a hectic film set. Campers study fundamental acting technique and scene study as starting points, while in-class shoots specifically train young actors for the technical requirements of film. At NYFA, campers learn acting for film in the best way possible: by actually doing it!

Each Saturday, our innovative classes and workshops encourage students to break down physical and internal inhibitions to find the most effective personal sources for the creation of truthful characters. Led by instructors who are working actors and directors, NYFA’s weekend acting camp classes are unlike most other acting classes, as they are constructed to reflect a professional film set with camera operators and professional lighting.

Once the camp is completed, each student receives a copy of their work.

Graduates of the New York Film Academy’s 12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp or acting for film summer camps are eligible for our challenging 12-Weekend Acting for Film II Camp. Picking up right where they left off, 12-Weekend Acting for Film II kids explore the process of performing in a more challenging and in-depth production. This camp provides an exciting opportunity for young performers to stretch their skills and apply new lessons in acting technique. Campers may shoot their final project on location or in a closed set at NYFA.

While students are introduced to specific acting techniques and exercises as they apply to acting for the camera, these advanced classes primarily focus on rehearsal and preparation for the final project. Once the camp is completed, each student receives a copy of their work.
