Attend NYFA's One-of-a-Kind Virtual Reality Workshops

The New York Film Academy’s hands-on short-term virtual reality programs guide students in concept development, design, and production of their own interactive VR experiences, games and 360 degree films. By utilizing industry-standard VR techniques under the guidance of experts in the ever growing VR industry, our eight-week programs aim to provide students with a practical foundation in VR production.

In the last year, Virtual Reality (VR) has gone from a niche market to one of the fastest-growing areas of creative expression and technical innovation. Virtual Reality is a medium unlike any other audio-visual storytelling platform because it immerses users inside an experience and gives them agency, thereby invoking a depth of emotion and interactivity comparable to real life.

VR brings together computer-generated images, programming, user experience design, game design, live action 360 video, non-linear screenwriting, and transmedia narrative design to create a holistic experience. The uses of VR are seemingly endless, with applications across a broad range of industries, including game design, documentary, narrative filmmaking, entertainment, mental health, journalism, architecture, and fitness.

NYFA's Filmmaking, Animation, and Game Design Departments have joined forces to offer two programs for people looking to develop skills in VR.

Narrative VR provides an in-depth introduction to the world of cinematic and interactive VR production including: screenwriting for VR, directing the actors and audience in 360, multi-lens cinematography and VR post production, coding for C# in the Unity3D game engine, immersive design, and user experience design.

VR Game Design focuses on game design techniques applied in the VR space. Students are required to complete the Narrative VR course, or submit a portfolio demonstrating equivalent skills in 3D Modeling, 3D Animation and/or development in Unity.
