a) Some basic info like fees, duration, date of commencement, hostel etc.
I have done the acting course and the fees for that is 12000 dollars. Date of commencement varies. I did the course in Abu Dhabi so I started in feb. It also starts in September. They provide you with a great hostel and a great environment to live in. They don’t take care of food and travel though.
b) Faculty interaction and style of teaching
Faculty is very very helpful. They are always there to listen to you and help you out in a mature way. Their style is I guess American. They give you the freedom to learn your own way.
c) Topics covered
Ummm improvisation, theatre, how to deliver dialogues and monologues, film acting. Etc.
d) Unique feature of the training
Its all hands on training. Best thing you are always in front of the camera and you stay in a surrounding of aspiring actors and filmmakers.
e) Why did you choose New York Film school from the other options
I chose it cause it was hands on training. And I guess it marketed itself well to make it seem the best choice.
f) Any special experience or exercise you would like to share with us that would be enriching
We got to act in short movies of other film makers so I got to know different styles of directing.
g) Cultural difference and your thoughts
Well in Abu Dhabi it was Arab culture. We had our freedom and I guess the teachers were more open with us. And less restriction on girl issues.
h) How does that training help in India. The universal aspect which can be used and aspects which require Indian input
That training gives you the confidence infront of the camera. Which gives you the upper hand here in India. Since you are with foreigners there you can mingle easier with people here.
