Subjects to be covered

This programme is structured around the production of three short films of increasing complexity. 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, locations, casting, and editing.

The fourth week is devoted to shooting and editing the final film, culminating in the final screening. As in all New York Film Academy workshops, each student writes, directs, shoots and edits a series of short film projects of his or her own using HD cameras, Lowel lighting packages, and Apple Final Cut Pro digital editing systems.

Classes in directing, writing, editing, cinematography, and production cover the creative and technical demands of telling a story with moving images. Each week all the students' films are screened and critiqued in class with the instructor.

The following classes are designed to be of immediate and practical use in an integrated curriculum:
