Program Overview

The AFA Degree Program in Producing allows students to focus exclusively on their professional and artistic development. Unlike a standard undergraduate program students are able to focus on the field they wish to pursue immediately and without the usual array of distribution requirements.

The New York Film Academy Associate in Fine Arts (AFA) in Producing is a conservatory-based two year program designed for full-time study over the course of four or five semesters. The New York Film Academy provides a creative setting with which to develop, challenge and inspire the talents of dedicated prospective producers in a total immersion, professional environment. By combining seminars, lectures and intense hands-on film shoots, students acquire a sound understanding and appreciation of motion picture arts and learn to integrate knowledge and professional experience. Our prescribed four semester producing curriculum serves to address the following core competencies:

  • Introduction to the roles, tasks and obstacles faced by film and television producers.
  • Gain understanding of the physical and post production processes.
  • Master storytelling concepts of elements, conventions, structure and style.
