New York Film Academy Filmmaking Student

I am studying at the New York Film Academy because it is one of the best film schools in the world and I love film. After I graduate, I want to find a job in the film industry. Also, I think NYFA gives students more hands-on practice, which is also why I chose to study here.

While studying at NYFA, I found the directors craft class and cinematography class to be my two favorite classes – as well as the lighting class. The writing and editing classes were very beneficial and taught me important methods. Ultimately, everything I learned at NYFA was valuable.

The first reason I chose to study at NYFA, over other schools, was because it is in New York City. I can enjoy learning while living in a great city. I think the environment is really important and I like the setup of classes. Every class you learn a lot – which is very useful during practice.

I would highly recommend NYFA to others looking to get into the industry, because I think students who graduate from here will be more likely to get a professional job.
