New York Film Academy: Student Resources

Although primarily intended for New York Film Academy (NYFA) students, this website from NYFA contains a ton of valuable material for anyone interested in filmmaking. The short videos are arranged into four main categories: How-To's, Industry Trends, Q&A, and Featured Directors. There is also a query box and a list of topic tags to further refine searches. Resources delve into relevant professionalization subjects and provide information about the work of those who have successful careers in film. For example, an Industry Trends piece from February 2020, "The 6 Black Filmmakers Nominated for Academy Award for Best Director," features capsule biographies and trailers from films directed by the late John Singleton, Lee Daniels, Steve McQueen, Barry Jenkins, Jordan Peele, and Spike Lee. How To's cover topics such as "Best Tips for Making a Short Film in a Short Amount of Time," building a creative brand (see the November 16, 2018 post), and sound in filmmaking (see the July 20, 2018 post). The Q&A section profiles recent graduates and alumni of the NYFA program, showing the career paths that they took post-degree.
