Tribeca Flashpoint Academy
The academy’s intensive two-year program is helmed by seasoned educators and real media industry professionals who expose students to real-world tasks and industry-standard equipment from their very first semester on campus. The ACICS-accredited college splits its programs among five basic fields: Film + Broadcast, Recording Arts, Animation + Visual Effects, Game + Interactive Media, and Design + Visual Communication. The school continually updates each unique curriculum to ensure students are up-to-date when it comes to the frequently changing tools, demands, and handshake conventions of the workplace.
The institution also organizes peripheral classes and camps for high school students interested in film, studio recording, animation, video game design, or graphic design. Seasoned instructors give burgeoning media gurus fun, yet practical, hands-on experience and the opportunity to work with the latest technologies in their field of interest.
