Film Workshop at NYFA’s Film School
The 12-Week Evening Filmmaking Workshop is the ideal program for individuals who must balance their interest in learning filmmaking with other responsibilities. Designed for students with little or no filmmaking experience, this rigorous workshop teaches students how to create their own original short films and develop their confidence as a director.
Program DescriptionProgram Name: 12-Week Evening Filmmaking Program
During this hands-on evening filmmaking workshop, students study the four primary elements of filmmaking: writing, directing, cinematography, and editing. To apply the concepts they learn in class, students write, produce, direct, and edit three short film exercises, using cameras, lighting packages, digital editing software, and sound recording equipment provided by NYFA. Students that take this workshop serve critical roles on their classmates’ films. As this is a rigorous program, students need to commit to working on the weekends and additional time outside of the program.
Throughout the evening workshop, students may meet with instructors for one-on-one consultations and will receive critique and feedback from their peers. The course culminates in a screening of the students’ final films, which is open to cast, crew, family, and friends.
