Filmmaking Camp

In a H.S. Film class, Jamir found he became very interested in being behind the camera as well as in front of it. 

 

Jamir's teacher suggested he continue his studies at a summer camp. He recommended the New York Film Academy (NYFA). They offer several program locations, levels, and class duration. Jamir decided to start with a week-long online camp intensive in Filmmaking.

 

In this step:

  • Watch video Filmmaking Basics. List 5 items you found essential and why.

  • Visit NYFA. Review Filmmaking Class Descriptions. Do you think this program was a good choice for Jamir? Explain why.
