Analeigh Tipton rounds out today’s alumna updates, Analeigh placed third overall in cycle 11 of America’s Next Top Model. Tipton attended the New York Film Academy in the summer of 2005 as at 16-years-old, studying in our six-week filmmaking program for high school aged students.
While attending NYFA’s high school six-week program Tipton began work on a film, which she showed the following summer at the University of Southern California’s summer program. The film that she produced at NYFA was done well enough that the director of the program guaranteed her admission into USC’s undergraduate program.
Tipton opted instead to pursue her modeling career; when scouts from ANTM contacted her through her myspace account and asked her to try out for the show. Since appearing on the show she has appeared on The Big Bang Theory and has signed to Abrams Artists Agency.
We will post her student film up this week, so stay tuned!
