Hands-On Film Workshop at NYFA
The 6-Week Filmmaking Workshop provides students with a strong foundation in filmmaking and directing. During the film workshop, students go through every step of the filmmaking production process, making it an ideal program for new and aspiring filmmakers.
Program DescriptionProgram Name: 6-Week Filmmaking Workshop
The 6-Week Filmmaking Workshop combines rigorous coursework with hands-on film production experience. From the very beginning of the program, students work and study as professionals, using technology and equipment provided by NYFA to learn the essentials of filmmaking. The coursework and projects within the workshop covers directing, writing, cinematography, production, sound recording, and editing.
Students apply the knowledge gained throughout the workshop to make three films. After completing each film, students screen original work and review the work of their peers, participating in an in-person critique with their instructor.
At the end of the film workshop, students can invite family and friends to an exclusive screening. The graduates of the 6-Week Filmmaking Workshop often enroll in NYFA’s more advanced programs to continue their film studies.
