Harvard

PRE-COLLEGE ENRICHMENT THROUGH FILM AND ACTING

The New York Film Academy is proud to return to Harvard in June of 2015 to conduct its internationally acclaimed filmmaking workshops. Harvard is a prestigious Ivy League university, perhaps the most famous learning institution in the world. Harvard is located in the charming, dynamic city of Cambridge, just minutes away from Boston, the “capital” of New England. The University’s roots in Cambridge are widespread, charging the city with a unique and intellectually invigorating atmosphere. In this environment, the film student is challenged to achieve at the highest level.

HARVARD UNIVERSITY

Harvard University, founded 16 years after the arrival of the Pilgrims at Plymouth Rock, celebrated its 350th anniversary in 1986. Six presidents of the United States – including John Quincy Adams, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and John Fitzgerald Kennedy – graduated from Harvard. Its faculty have produced more than 30 Pulitzer Prize winners and 30 Nobel Laureates. NYFA Students Learning Filmmaking Fundamentals at Harvard UniversityNew York Film Academy Summer Camps for Film and Acting for Film are held in Memorial Hall (and Lowell Hall), a Ruskinian Gothic memorial to Harvard’s Union casualties from the Civil War, built in 1878. This majestic structure is conveniently located to Harvard Square’s historical, commercial, and academic resources.

CAMBRIDGE AND BOSTON

Cambridge and Boston offer aspiring high school filmmakers an enormous variety of locations for making their films. They may want to capture the romantic image of the Harvard Crew rowing down the Charles River, or the site of Paul Revere’s historic ride, or the bustling market of Faneuil Hall. Nearby Walden Pond will inspire visiting filmmakers as it inspired Thoreau more than 150 years ago. A hi-tech, cultured city, Cambridge is also a town in love with movies. Students can view classics and the most recent independent films at the historic Brattle Theater in Harvard Square.

SUPERVISION

Students reside in one of three dormitories on the Harvard campus, while the dining hall and classes are located in Memorial Hall. The dormitories are approximately 10-15 minutes by foot from Memorial Hall across campus and students may walk at their leisure without a counselor from the dormitories to Memorial Hall. Students spend the majority of their day in class and/or on shoots on campus with their instructors or teaching assistants. Following class, when time allows students have the ability to roam freely on campus and patronize establishments in Harvard Square and the surrounding urban environment. Students must inform their counselor of their destinations in Harvard Square and they must adhere to our Buddy System—no student is allowed to roam alone. Although students may explore the Square they must stay within a certain radius of Harvard Campus proper. That radius is clearly outlined at the onset of the program. If any parent requires that their child not be permitted to explore Harvard Square without a counselor, please contact the Film Academy and we will make the necessary arrangements. Harvard University offers many gorgeous locations for students to filmSaturday activities are mandatory for housed students and include daylong trips. Counselors attend and supervise these outings. Additional activities take place nearly every weeknight and on Sundays as well, and these are optional. In case of medical emergency, students are taken to Cambridge or Auburn Hospital. We require that all students submit their medical insurance information prior to the workshop.

EXTRA-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES

Although the camp’s daily schedule is demanding, non-commuting students will take part in organized activities in and around the Harvard campus. Cambridge is a vibrant college town: dozens of restaurants, cafés, bookstores, ice cream shops, and pizza parlors encircle the university. One can find almost anything in the city, from independent record and comic book stores to clothing boutiques. A number of world-class museums are in the area, including the Gardner Museum and the Harvard University Art Museums. Theatrical productions are held in Cambridge throughout the summer, for example, at the famed American Repertory Theatre (A.R.T.). Students enjoy excursions to the many cultural offerings of Boston, located a short twenty-minute train ride away.

HOUSING

New York Film Academy students have the option of living in supervised Harvard dormitories on campus. Please contact NYFA to arrange housing. All Courses are taught in English.
