New York, NY (Top40 Charts) New York Film Academy (NYFA) is partnering with Giornata degli Autori to hold an all-day event at the Venice Film Festival on September 4, 2019.
As part of the Venice Film Festival, Giornata degli Autori showcases high quality cinema that has a special focus on innovation, research, originality, and independence.

During the course of the day, Craig Caton ("E.T.", "Ghostbusters", "Jurassic Park"), Chair of NYFA's 3D Animation & Visual Effects department, will present two Master Classes. The first Master Class will be exclusive to the jurors of the Giornata degli Autori, while the second will be open to festival-goers and will cover the basics of motion capture technology and feature a real-time, interactive facial recognition demonstration with volunteers from the audience. Following the second Master Class, three student shorts selected from NYFA's most recent crop of students will be screened: "Scout" by Alex Cvetkov (Slovenia, Italy), "8" by Gabriele Fabbro (United States, Italy), and "Two Weeks" in Laredo by Adrianne Lundy (United States). These films are representative of the quality that NYFA students produce throughout the course of their studies.

Of NYFA's participation, New York Film Academy Florence Director Diana Santi said, "On behalf of NYFA, I can say that we are excited to present our educational method and a selection of student shorts to the audience of Giornata degli Autori at the Venice Film Festival 2019. Our mission has always been to train students to be industry-ready through our hands-on, learn-by-doing philosophy that gives students access to cutting-edge equipment and internationally acclaimed instructors such as Craig Caton. We also offer students the support to take the first steps in the industry as professionals."

Craig Caton is known for his work on some of Hollywood's biggest blockbusters and cult classics such as "E.T.", "Ghostbusters", "Jurassic Park", and "Batman Returns". As the film industry moved into the digital era Caton became one of the pioneers of now industry standard software Maya®.

On partnering with NYFA, Giorgio Gosetti, Giornata degli Autori Director, shared, "Inside the huge Hollywood machine, there are skills that give form to ideas that would otherwise be impossible to portray on screen. We wanted to highlight this aspect of filmmaking to reveal the authorship that goes beyond the script, and the place where inspiration and technique meet, the result being those film classics we all adore. Inviting Craig Caton means creating a space for film education, in the form of an entertaining, dynamic class on spaceships, dinosaurs and imaginary creatures turned real, with Caton as our guide."
