A new film camp and photography camp for teens will be held at NYU starting Summer 2012. iD Visual Arts Academy, a pre-college program that introduces teens to the filmmaking industry, will hold two-week sessions at the prestigious New York University college campus from June to August. NYU joins Stanford University and Princeton University in hosting these programs.

The elite iD Visual Arts Academy is for ages 13-18 and gives students a taste of college life while teaching them essential technology skills. Students can focus on filmmaking, special effects, or professional photography and learn industry-standard software including the Adobe® Creative Suite and Apple® Final Cut Pro®.

During each intensive session, teens learn in small classes and take advantage of New York City as a backdrop for their filmmaking and photography projects. Classes are taught by adult-only instructors with industry experience. Instructional faculty include professional Visual FX editors, exhibiting artists, and award-winning documentary filmmakers.

Courses include “iD Film Studios 101” to give students a general introduction to filmmaking, and “Visual FX with Final Cut Pro® and Adobe® After Effects®” for students interested in special effects. Students in the filmmaking camps learn everything from how to build pre-production shot lists to filming techniques and post-production editing. Students interested in photography can take the “Professional Photography” class to explore different genres of photography as well as finishing techniques.

Other academic summer programs held at NYU include iD Tech Camps, the nation’s leading summer technology program for students ages 7-17. This gives younger students the opportunity to learn movie making, film production, and video game design at the same great NYU location in weeklong day camp sessions.
