Get Ready: New York Film Academy training program heads to Nigeria!



delIf you missed the last New York Film Academy (NYFA) training program, you can now heave a sigh of relief and smile; as yet another opportunity to become filmmakers and creative professionals now lies within your reach. Del-York International, Africa’s frontline Film and Media Marketing Company, (Sole representative of the NYFA in Africa), is bringing to your doorstep Africa’s most intensive hands-on film making training program. The New York Film Academy has confirmed its readiness to return to Nigeria this year for another training programme, with its renewed commitment towards empowering young creative Nigerians and Africans with the passion and skill requisite to birthing a more robust film industry. On its part, the NYFA has expressed delight on the prospect of training more Nigerians to become professionals in film making, multi-media and entertainment. Del-York International is building on the success it recorded with the two previous trainings held in Lagos and Abuja, which saw 650 aspiring film makers and media professionals trained, by 60 Hollywood’s top tutors from the Los Angeles and New York Campuses of the NYFA. The training project which has been slated for the last quarter of the year, will feature an array of courses ranging from Acting, Directing, Set design, Production, Film making, Final Cut Pro, 3D animation, Screen writing, Cinematography, Digital photography, Music Video production, Costume & Make-Up, Graphics & Special effects as well as Broadcast Journalism. This year, in a bid to accommodate more applicants in Nigeria and Africa, measures are in place to admit up to a thousand applicants; this much Miss Andrea Manuela Giaccaglia (Head; Marketing and corporate communications) believes will enable more participants benefit from the training, unlike previous editions. Also, key players in the nations’ corporate and industrial sectors are gearing up to provide sponsorship packages for the project. Applicants are advised to hastily apply at, for a speedy processing of applications and issuance of admission letters, in order to enjoy sponsorship considerations. Applicants must also note that the admission letter is a pre-condition for a chance to access and obtain a Federal government scholarship scheme dubbed: Project Act-Capacity Building Fund. The first phase of the grant that is designated for training and capacity building projects, within Nollywood and the creative industry will come on stream July 2013. This edition of the NYFA training promises to be a profound experience for all applicants. visit more info]]>
