New York Film Academy 2 Year Filmmaking Student

I am studying at New York Film Academy because I want to be a working director, and I am able to do my reel here. This school is also located in New York.

Paul Warner’s teaching methods are very valuable and the teachers here are why I would recommend this school to others.

Also, the building and classrooms are nice!

New York Film Academy BFA Filmmaking Student

My name is Joy Zhou,  and I’m from Shanghai, China. On September 2010, I got the chance to learn filmmaking at the New York Film Academy, as an exchange student from Shanghai Theater Academy.

I’ve been here more than two years now. I think what I got the most from New York Film Academy was the experience in the real film industry. Not only practicing on school projects, but also having the chance to see the filmmaking world. And that’s what New York and LA  have taught me too. Besides that, I also made some true friends in the industry, and got a great chance to know Hollywood.

Love, patience, and trust. That’s what I learned from NYFA. Thanks for the past two years, I’m now looking forward to the future.

Dear Stephanie, New York Film Academy Admissions Counselor,

I am sincerely and incredibly appreciative of all you have done for us to make the New York Film Academy experience a good one!

We met her in person in New York, in December, and she took us on a tour to both campuses and did a mini coaching session with our son. The experience was wonderful. Both my husband and I wanted to go to acting school after spending the morning with Stephanie! Her energy, knowledge of acting/directing/coaching in combination with her knowledge of the New York Film Academy programs and the acting “business” were incredible. She even recommended a show, Traces, which we went to and loved – it beat Spiderman hands down!

Stephanie was always lightening fast in responding to all of my questions and great at communicating information to others about my son, his itinerary, his credits, etc. at New York Film Academy. We live in the Middle East and our son lives in South America, so getting things set up and well communicated across 3 continents was a big task. Stephanie made everything easy and was always personable and professional (and best of all funny!) I can’t thank her enough! The New York Film Academy is lucky to have you!
Thanks again!

Melissa, Pedro’s mom (4 week acting student)
