My thanks once again to the New York Film Academy for sponsoring this past week of the candler blog.
For the aspiring actor, getting a break in an acclaimed film may seem like the career breakthrough moment. But for many it comes before that: In the training, the exposure to new and established film acting talent, and acquiring key tools: students gain experience with film equipment, work on live film shoots and create their all-important actor’s reel.
The New York Film Academy, with campuses in New York, Boston (Harvard University campus), Los Angeles (Universal Studios) and Orlando (Disney Studios) – as well as locations abroad in Europe, Asia and Australia – offers those pre-stardom experiences that have launched the careers of many new stars of TV and film: Aubrey Plaza (“Parks & Recreation”), Camilla Ludington (“William & Kate”), Eve Hewson (“This Must Be the Place”), Chord Overstreet (“Glee”) and Analeigh Tipton (“Crazy Stupid Love”).
Additionally, NYFA campuses draw an exceptionally broad mix of students from all over the world. It becomes a reference point for global careers.
