Founded in 2007, Tribeca Flashpoint Academy (http://www.tfa.edu
) has quickly become one of the industry’s most well-known and respected media arts schools—providing intensive, direct-to-industry associate degree programs that propel graduates into “the business” in a way few other institutions can.
A venture with Robert DeNiro’s Tribeca Enterprises, Tribeca Flashpoint Academy offers a progressive training model that erases the boundaries between education and the professional world by exposing students to real-world, industry experiences and state-of-the-art software and equipment beginning their first semester on campus.
Part college, part industry apprenticeship, TFA equips graduates with the up-to-the minute technical skills, robust resume of real-world experiences, and powerful industry know-how they need to launch their careers in the digital arts.
TFA offers associate degree programs in the following areas:
Film + Broadcast
Animation + Visual Effects
Game + Interactive Media
Design + Visual Communications.
