QUICK TAKE: Whether a student’s background is in film or not,

this institution, the self-dubbed “hands-on film school,” will

give young adults a solid film background—in front of or

behind the camera.

AGE REQUIREMENT: 14 and older

FEES: From $5,900 for the 4-week filmmaking course to

$6,900 for the 6-week course. This does not include room and

board.

BACKGROUND: The New York Film Academy was established

in 1993 “on a belief that a top quality education in filmmaking

should be accessible to anyone with the drive and ambition

to make films.” Kids’ programs are held only in the summer.

Entertainment industry icons Steven Spielberg and Pierce

Brosnan, among others, have sent their sons to the New York

Film Academy.

DESCRIPTION: Courses vary in subject and length.

AMC (American Movie Classics): A one-week program held in

conjunction with American Movie Channel, this is a crash

course in filmmaking for students who have no experience.

There are no expectations, and it teaches the basics.

4-Week and 6-Week Filmmaking Workshop: The four-week

course teaches your child all the basics of how to work

with a 16-mm camera. The six-week program offers greater

depth.

5-Week Digital Program: This course teaches your child the

basics of digital filmmaking.

4-Week Acting Program: This program teaches the basics of

acting. Some kids may have some experience, but many

don’t.

The curriculum offers intense training. Directing, camera operation,

editing, filmmaking, and acting programs are available.

Individuals with little to no filmmaking experience are

asked to take advantage of the Total Immersion Workshop,

which gives students a crash course in every aspect of filmmaking.

The Academy’s Web site says the intensity of its

courses demands maturity, commitment, dedication, and the

ability to work with others.

Multilocation School: New York, Los Angeles, London, Harvard

University in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and Princeton

University in New Jersey. Some higher education

institutions offer college credit for courses taken at the

New York Film Academy.
