12-Weekend Acting for Film Camps for Teens

Locations: New York City, Los Angeles
Hours: 2-6 p.m. in NYC and 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. in LA (12 Consecutive Saturdays)


The New York Film Academy is pleased to offer a unique opportunity for teens to learn acting for film during the school year in our 12-weekend acting for film camps, offered exclusively for commuting students at our campuses in New York City and Los Angeles, CA.

12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp

The 12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp and the 12-Weekend Acting for Film Camp II emphasize the basic elements of the craft of acting using Stanislavski’s System and scene study as starting points. Hands-on classes in acting, voice, movement, improv and scene study prepare students for the real-life experience of being on a film or TV set and break down physical and internal inhibitions to help each student find the most effective personal sources for the creation of truthful characters. Cameras are used during class time, allowing students to apply what they learn to a series of on-camera exercises designed to develop their screen acting ability. Students should be prepared to devote additional hours of their own time for rehearsal and preparation.

12-Weekend Acting for Film II Camp

Prerequisite: 12-Weekend, 1, 3, or 4-Week Acting for Film Camp
For returning NYFA campers, our 12-Weekend Acting for Film II Camp deepens and strengthens young actors’ training, building upon their foundation of experience with a higher level of classes, exercises, and materials. As a challenge to their flexibility and versatility, 12-Week Acting for Film II campers rehearse, workshop, and film two contrasting monologues and more complex content.

Upon successful completion of the camps, students receive a New York Film Academy Certificate and a copy of their work.
