What Tokyo School of Anime offers is not only training in Japan, but you can also take part in a study tour to the USA. In this well-organized tour, you can focus on your activities at ease.
- NYFA has its main campus in New York City and branch schools all over the world. The major benefit of the Hollywood school is its location: Universal Studios. While learning Hollywood-style filmmaking, you can shoot your own movie. Our sister school, FC TOKYO, is affiliated with NYFA Hollywood. Take advantage of this rare opportunity.
- CG (Computer Graphics) experiences rapid growth day by day. That's why FC TOKYO, our sister school, chose to tie up with Studio Arts, that incorporates Maya, Shake, Avid, AfterEffects and Photoshop into its curriculum. Top level CG artists of Disney, Warner, Dreamworks etc. hone their skills and exchange their views.
- Stella Adler was a legendary theater/movie actress. Since she founded her first school in New York in 1949, Stella pursued her own teaching technique. Marlon Brando, Martin Sheen, Warren Beatty, Robert De Niro, Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith and numerous other greatest actors have learned with her. Today, the academy's workshop is highly acclaimed for bringing out the innate talents of young actors.
- Traveling with all my classmates was fun. We became good friends. I feel lucky I was able to learn from local professionals; principles of voice acting are universal. During my free time, I had a lot of fun in the optional tour to Joshua Tree National Park and many other fun activities. I hope I will be able to study abroad again soon!
- I've never been abroad so I was a bit nervous, but my classmates helped me a lot. Sony Pictures was fun, and I had a great time in workshop with local voice actors. They were very friendly, and they gave us tips and advice on acting. They showed us how typical anime productions go, and we also learned about the difference in manners between Japan and the US. Other activities were also fun and exciting. I watched a Cirque du Soleil show during my free time and I enjoyed it a lot.
- Located in Universal Studio, New York Film Academy Hollywood has state-of-the-art facilities. Tokyo School of Anime students visit their recording studios, which are world class, to participate in voice-acting workshop followed by recording sessions. The workshop is led by local voice actors who have lots of working experience in 3DCG animation movies. Last year, many Tokyo School of Anime students took part in this wonderful opportunity. Although the culture gap made them a little nervous at the beginning, they quickly adjusted themselves to the local manners. Their personal growth showed on their faces when they returned home.
Some of the instructors and supervisors at Tokyo School of Anime are active overseas. We frequently invites Mr. Matt Suzuki, an educational supervisor at Tokyo School of Anime, to be with us to share his philosophy as a creator and his experience in the US.
Mr. Suzuki won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Special Visual Effects in Steven Spielberg's production company and others. He currently works at Walt Disney Studios as a visual development artist. His work includes "The Fugitive," "Atlantis:The Lost Empire," "Con Air," "Meet the Robinsons," and "The Day of the Earth Stood Still," to name a few.
