TFA's High School Workshops inspire students to begin learning about the industry early.
TFA’s High School Workshops inspire students to begin learning about the industry early.
Aspiring digital artists from all over the country are getting a taste of their future careers in Tribeca Flashpoint Academy’s High School Summer Program. Teens who are passionate or curious about digital media can enroll in any of TFA’s High School Workshops, offering week-long sessions in HD film production, studio recording, VFX + animation, game design and graphic design. These workshops will take place in June, July and August.

“The benefit of our school is that you get to see how real world collaboration happens,” said Peter Hawley, chair of the film + broadcast department. “Films are not made in a vacuum. That’s not how it’s done in the real-world and we don’t teach that model. We teach the real-world model where people from different departments and different disciplines come together to work and create a project.”

In the HD film production workshop, students learn the different roles that make up a professional film crew and then work together to take a film from conception through development. Using techniques and equipment employed by industry professionals, students spend five days transforming an idea into an original, high-definition short film.

TFA’s studio recording workshop teaches students to record and mix live music in a professional music control room. Students in the animation and game design workshops learn the industry-standard software that brings real-world characters game ideas to life. Students in the graphic design workshop create magazines, movies, posters and album covers using the same tools and techniques the pros do.

TFA’s summer workshops allow students to get their hands on state-of-the-art technology and to witness some of the most innovative work happening in the industry. The camp also teaches that working with digital media involves a tremendous amount of discipline, technique and problem solving.
