Summer camps for 2021 are currently being planned for both in-person and online options. However, due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, NYFA will be unable to offer housing for in-person teen camps. Families will need to secure their own housing for campers and provide any necessary off-campus supervision, if traveling to a NYFA teen summer camp from another city, state or country. All after-school and weekend camps will be conducted online, until further notice. To view all camps and workshops offered, please click here.

The 3D Animation Summer Camps at the New York Film Academy provides campers with an intensive, hands-on environment in which they learn the essentials of 3D animation, and gain a basic understanding of visual effects (VFX), preparing them to pursue their dreams in animation and VFX.

Students in both the 3- and 4-Week 3D Animation Summer Camps work with state-of-the-art, industry standard 3D Maya software to build their models and apply basic animation techniques. Campers learn how to create original characters and environments, working through each step of a professional animation pipeline. Campers are also immersed in the fundamental skills of animation, including: drawing, painting, storyboarding, and sculpting.

NYFA’s faculty of professional animators and visual effects artists work with campers to help them to bring their most creative and original ideas to life, while also teaching campers a range of creative skills that can inspire them long after they leave.
