Film & Video Daily Schedule

NHSI Film & Video Institute students can choose between a concentration of study in Acting on Camera, Production, or Screenwriting.

Please take some time to review the daily schedule and time commitment that the Institute requires. The program is a Film Intensive, and the schedule does not allow for many outside activities. Be thoughtful in considering your interest in the rigorous schedule of the program.

Acting on Camera




“I absolutely loved my classes! The faculty were amazing and I learned way more than I could have possibly imagined.”

I felt that I not only learned a lot, created some beautiful pieces of art, met friends and future collaborators, but it made me excited to spend the rest of my life improving upon this art form and dedicating myself to it.”
