This program offers students the opportunity to learn new skills, through our hands-on, industry specific, short workshops. Upon successful completion, students will receive a certificate of attendance.
The 12-Week Evening Acting for Film Workshop is the ideal program for individuals who must balance acting with other
Designed for students of all levels, the course meets three evenings per week from 6 to 8:30 p.m.
The Evening Workshop gives students the instruction they need while allowing them to work during the day. All classes
are geared towards providing the building blocks needed to act in film.
Classes emphasize the theory and practice of the basic elements of the acting craft, using various acting techniques
and scene work as jumping-off points. In addition to scene work, students participate in classes aimed specifically at
training the actor for the requirements of acting on a film set.
Classes encourage students to break down physical and internal inhibitions, and help each student find the most effective
personal inspirations for the creation of truthful characters. Students should be prepared to work in nontraditional
acting classes that emphasize the construction and control of character given the unique pressures of a film or television
shoot. Video cameras may be used during classes.
Upon the successful completion of the course, students take home a master tape of all their projects and receive a New York
Film Academy certificate.
The evening workshop draws together an eclectic group of people from young working professionals, to international
students, to people who are well established in busy careers. Students must be highly motivated in order to balance the
workshop requirements with their daytime commitments.
