NYFA is proud of its instructors, counselors and staff who’s hard work makes our filmmaking and acting summer camps successful! The camps are primarily composed of a student body that share a passion for storytelling; whether that’s through filmmaking, acting, writing, photography, or animation. They treat their students as serious, young storytellers and do not water down their curriculum in any way just because of their youth. As a result, students typically appreciate being treated like young professionals and being taken seriously. The exposure to filmmaking equipment, facilities and level of instruction is unparalleled. For many students, this experience cements their passion and defines their future goals for college, and ultimately their potential career. This program is a true coming of age experience in which students grow and mature creative and professional manner.
Activities vary from location to location. At Universal Studios, campers go to the theme parks and have had major Hollywood guest speakers, including Ron Howard, Doug Liman, and Steven Spielberg.
