At the New York Film Academy, we pride ourselves on being the premiere hands on 3D animation camp for Teens. During our three and four-week camps students engage with Disney’s 12 principles of animation. And learn how to bring their own original creations to life. 

 Students learn fundamental methods of modeling and animation etc. through simple exercises using industry-standard animation software. They explore the wonderful 3D world as they tell their story. Characters pitch a ball, swing a hammer, squash and stretch characters. Our motto is: Learn through doing and at NYFA story is King (or Queen)!

Students develop and write stories and scenes using a character’s relationship with conflict and resolution. Then they’re ready to put the creative aspects of story development into action through 3D animation. At the end of the course, students celebrate their movies with a screening open to friends and family.
