The Verdugo Hills Council would like to extend a big “Thank you!” to the New York Film Academy for a great Merit Badge Day on March 18th. Our Scouts not only had great classes, but the New York Film Academy gifted them all with camping beanies with the New York Film Academy logo, completion certificates, and delicious Porto’s lunches all for free! Not to mention the opportunity to take a full day of classes with New York Film Academy teachers and professionals. We had 65 participants, and they had a great time learning about Animation, Game Design, Moviemaking, and Photography. The Moviemaking and Photography groups went to the Universal Studios backlot to work and got to see where real movies are made.
