My vision is quite simple—build a film and animation school that I would love to attend. Get the best people to teach. Acquire state-of-the-art equipment. Nurture each student’s talent, challenge assumptions and cultivate voices. Introduce our students to New York’s filmmakers, actors, producers and animators, and let them experience the professional world.
Assisted by teams of talented instructors and dedicated support staff, SVA Film and Animation has fulfilled this mission. If you want to be an on-screen storyteller— communicating your ideas across multiple platforms from movies to television to the Internet—this is the place to learn.
This is a special place where people work together, get to know each other and support each other’s growth. Ours is a community of artists where belonging means discovery your most creative self.
