Del-York International - New York Film Academy Filmmaking and Acting Training Program

In 2010, our inaugural four-week training program included six courses: Film making, Acting for film, Producing, Screenwriting, 3D Animation and Editing. This initiative trained approximately 400 students on behind-the-camera skills. In 2011, Del-York International and the New York Film Academy introduced a new workshop, Broadcast Journalism to the available courses and trained 250 students. However, this year's training program is offering 14 courses; Digital Film making, Directing, Acting for Film, Producing, Screenwriting, Editing, Broadcast Journalism, 3D Animation, Cinematography, Digital Photography, Graphics & Special Effects, Music video production, Set Design, Costume design & Make up.


Each student will select one of the offered courses listed above; the four-week program is structured around the production of three short films of increasing complexity. Students will form groups to write, direct, produce, act, shoot and edit a series of short film projects using Arriflex 16mm cameras, Lowel lighting packages, and Apple Final Cut Pro digital editing systems..

Classes and hands-on workshops are held throughout the week and some weekends are reserved for additional classes or shooting. Evenings are spent on writing, location management, casting, and editing. The last week of the training program is devoted to shooting and editing the final film, culminating as the concluding stage of screening for projects that will be aired at the Awards & Gala Night of the training program.
