Film School is one of those educational opportunities that can put directly behind the camera of the hottest and latest movies and television programs.
One of the best film schools in the world is the New York University Tisch School of the Arts. The Hollywood Reporter recently reported that
To study film in New York is to plunge into the belly of a very different beast than Hollywood, but for gritty artists like Martin Scorsese, Oliver Stone and Breaking Bad creator Vince Gilligan, NYU has proved a direct route to the top. Where else can you sit in a class of 12 and hear alum James Franco teach you how to turn a poem into a movie? The Hollywood Reporter
For over 45 years, The New York University Tisch School of the Arts has utilized and continues to draw upon the rare and amazing resources of new York City and the amazing New York University in order to create an opportunity/training ground for creative artists, scholars, and entrepreneurs.
The New York University Tisch School of the Arts and corresponding New York University spans from the nearly frightful Wall Street to the historic Midtown Manhattan, but is centered around Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village. For generations Greenwich Village has been a home for artists and intellectuals.
Summer High School

“Getting accepted to Tisch meant one thing to me: hope. It validated all of my dreams and made the concept of becoming a filmmaker a tangible possibility. Teachers like Tom Drysdale and Haig Manoogian inspired me, infusing me with a lifelong passion for cinema history. I carry their artistic philosophy with me on every film: Never compromise, never stop asking questions and never stop being a student of film.” — Chris Columbus, writer-director, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
