Overview of New York Film Academy Australia’s 12-Week Acting for Film Workshop

New York Film Academy Australia’s 12-Week Acting for Film Workshops are unlike any other actor training programs in the world -- cutting-edge explorations into the art and practice of acting for the screen. The 12-Week Acting for Film program includes hands-on instruction and requires a complete commitment on the part of the student. A standard week of study involves additional time in the evenings and on weekends, as needed, for classes, rehearsals, and shoots.

In the 12-Week Acting for Film Workshop, students are placed with the Diploma of Screen and Media in Acting for Film students for the first eight weeks of their program. During the last four weeks, students will break from the Diploma program and participate in their own group. Students will also participate in additional production workshops on some weekends.

WHAT MAKES OUR ACTING PROGRAMS UNIQUE?
PRACTICAL HANDS-ON EXPERIENCE

The best way to learn how to act in films is to actually act in films. Our students begin acting in front of the camera from the first week of the program. Every week, students get the opportunity to practice the techniques and skills they have gained in class with exercises that are shot and reviewed.

PROFESSIONAL FACULTY

Our instructors have extensive experience both nationally and internationally on TV and film, and are professional actors in their own right.

FILM PRODUCTIONS

Many of our programs feature the production of short films or scenes that are created by and which star our acting students. These are shot and edited together and may be used for students' own reels.

FILMMAKING RESOURCES

Our Acting for Film and Filmmaking programs work hand-in-hand, giving students the opportunity to experience a wide-array of resources -- such as film equipment, live film shoots, and a network of filmmakers, screenwriters, producers, and editors -- to assist them in their professional development before they enter the real world.

REEL MATERIALS

All of our students are provided with shot and edited materials that are suitable for inclusion on an actor's reel.

The 12-Week Acting for Film Workshop works on building a foundation in the craft of acting, using training techniques rooted in the theater, but applicable to screen acting. Students participate in a broad array of core classes that introduce them to finding the actor within, while simultaneously training their instrument to do the kind of technical, emotional, and physical work necessary for film acting, culminating in a final performance.
