I am studying at the New York Film Academy because I want to be a filmmaker in the future. The production workshops and hands-on camera work have been a valuable learning experience.
I chose to study at NYFA because I wanted to practice and learn as much as I could about filmmaking during the time I was studying.
I recommend NYFA to students looking to get into the industry and want hands-on practice.
I was encouraged by others to study at the New York Film Academy because I love cinematography and filmmaking; and want to learn more about each. I also hope I can find a job in either one of these majors. The emphasis on hands-on learning helps a lot to learn the craft.
I would recommend NYFA to others looking to get into the industry.
I hope to obtain a management job in my career, so New York Film Academy provides me the experience I need to develop my skills.
Teaching methods I’ve found valuable at the New York Film Academy are suggestions by Brad Sample and Sal. I really like what they have to say, and the way they teach is what I need in order to do my best.
I chose to study at NYFA over other schools because it allows the most time to shoot and be a part of what we are learning. I would recommend this school to others looking to get into the industry because it’s a place to learn real skills.
While studying at the New York Film Academy, I want to further increase my knowledge of film. I’ve done four years of TV production in high school and I’ve decided to completely pursue this craft. I chose NYFA to determine which specific niche I’d like to follow and make a career out of. Editing has become my main passion.
I like being hands-on while learning. This standout teaching method I have found the most valuable and helpful in retaining the most information. Examples of what teachers are speaking about – specifically visual examples are extremely helpful.
When choosing a school I chose NYFA because it would give me the fastest access to equipment to shoot, and it’s main idea is to learn by doing. This trial and error method helps us learn if we did something wrong and then provides constructive criticism to help us become better.
The equipment and teaching staff are excellent. The faculty has outstanding experience and knowledge of the industry, which provides us with a lot of different opinions.
I hope to be a film director, which is why I chose to study at the New York Film Academy and learn basic filmmaking.
Cinema Studies has been my favorite part about the filmmaking program. I like this class because it gives you an idea of the style of the films and it helps inspire the films that we produce at NYFA. In addition to Cinema Studies, I love production workshops since students have a chance to work closely with teachers.
I am studying at the New York Film Academy because of their hands-on approach. The teachers at the New York Film Academy are great! Piero, Claude and Kathy have been wonderful!
My dream is to become a filmmaker and learn the skills I need while studying at the New York Film Academy. The school emphasizes various approaches to learning such as the hands-on approach, feedback on scripts, and ideas generated by teachers and peers.
I chose to study at NYFA because of the emphasis on hands-on experience. Theory is great, but if you can’t pick up a camera and use it, what’s the point?
I recommend New York Film Academy to others looking to get into the industry.
I have previously studied at other film schools, but I’ve always wanted the opportunity to learn film while living in New York City. I chose to continue my education at the New York Film Academy because of their hands-on approach, accelerated courses and it’s New York City location.
I chose to enroll in school at the New York Film Academy because I’ve heard a lot of great things about the school and I have access to equipment and resources that I wouldn’t have at other schools.
The production workshops are a great opportunity for hands-on practice and are valuable for learning.
I chose to study here because of the great reputation, price, equipment and the hands-on work you receive at the school. In addition to this, I would recommend NYFA to others because it’s a good school to understand the way that a movie is done.

I want to perfect my skills as a writer and director – as well as working in a team oriented profession.
I’ve found Katie Kurtis’ writing teaching methods and styles to be valuable. She encourages her class to brainstorm as the way of free-forming ideals that can later be connected to what we are doing and learning.
The reasons I chose to study here over other schools are because it is intensive. Meaning no time to waste and help us swim rather than sink.
I recommend this school to others looking to get into the industry because if you can survive this, then you stand a chance of being successful in this industry.
