The New York Film Academy Blog seen here: https://www.nyfa.edu/film-school-blog/ is a wonderful, fun resource for up and coming film makers. It will link you to their main site for information about programs and offerings from NYFA, but my favorite resource is the blogs about guest speakers, and their insight into the film business. They tell inspiring stories of passionate people who have carved out their success through the guidance of mentors, and training they have received.
I think the site is well produced, easy to read and follow, and has a nice variety of articles. Not only do they highlight work and success of alumni, but they provide news about current faculty, changes in the organization, and opportunities to be involved and experience what NYFA has to offer. For example, NYFA Los Angeles has recently welcomed cinematographer Tony Richmond as the new lead faculty of the Cinematography dept. and also, Wednesday nights in New York they produce a comedy show for students to hone their craft at the Comedy Cafe.
The information in this blog is current, relevant, and interesting to read. I enjoy the quality of their content and always find fun articles and words of wisdom. I highly recommend browsing to anyone interested in film, or considering attending film school.
