New York Film Academy grad A. James Marcolin’s film I Am Alive won Best Short Film at the 2012 Boston International Film Festival. Marcolin originally attended a NYFA 4 week program and enjoyed the academy so much he came back for the 1 year filmmaking program. “The experience was really great because we always had access to equipment and it was incredibly hands-on. At NYFA, if you have great ideas you can make them a reality - nobody will stop you. I always had support from my professors, even the one’s who weren’t mine.
Marcolin will be screening his award winning short, I Am Alive, Saturday May 5 at 7:30 P.M. at New York Film Academy’s Union Square campus.
In the meantime, Marcolin is hard at work raising funds for his next film, Left With a Bitter Taste in the Mouth, with NYFA instructor Piero Basso as Director of Photography. You can support his film on Indiegogo.
