Philadelphia Recording School by Recording Connection
Your Philadelphia Recording School Alternative
You don’t have to leave home to learn how to make films. We’ve got a unique film program right here in Philly! We’re Philadelphia Film Connection and we’re sick of traditional film schools taking your money and leaving you with nothing but an inadequate diploma for your time. What we give you instead is an opportunity to work with filmmaking professionals in the Philly area that will mentor you and become your first industry contacts. You can opt for the 6-month behind the scenes track to collaborate with mentors in their studios and production houses. Or you can instead choose our 8-month directors track. This program links you with both local mentors and a dream mentor based in Los Angeles. During the last week of your studies, you’ll be flown out to L.A. to pitch your idea to an industry executive just like the pros. Think you’ve got what it takes to take Hollywood by storm?

Philadelphia was the home of American Bandstand, which shaped America's Top 40 music tastes with its daily TV broadcasts from 1957 through 1963 before going to a weekly format that lasted through 1989. During its heyday, a single appearance on American Bandstand could launch a new artist, not to mention a new dance craze. The movie Hairspray is loosely based on this phenomenon.

I helped my mentor out with a video shoot for a band that came in. I learned on many real projects. I like the program very much.
