Hands-on Filmmaking Workshop at NYFA
In NYFA’s 3-Week Filmmaking Workshop, students get a thorough introduction to film. Similar to all NYFA film programs, each student writes, directs, shoots, and edits two short film projects.
Program DescriptionProgram Name: 3-Week Filmmaking Workshop
NYFA’s hands-on filmmaking workshop is designed to teach the essentials of directing and film production. During the program, students learn from industry professionals, using film equipment and technology provided by NYFA. Throughout the workshop, students learn the basics of writing, directing, location scouting, casting, shooting, and editing films, making it possible for them to complete their own film projects during the course.
As in all NYFA film workshops, students create a series of their own short films, which they screen and get critique from their instructor and peers. They each direct their own films, and crew on the short films of their peers, rotating amongst key crew positions and gaining crucial experience in various on-set production roles. By the end of NYFA’s program, students have a body of work, actual set experience, as well as a certificate of completion. Many graduates of the course choose to continue their film studies in more advanced programs.
