A Real Online Film Production School


The Film Connection offers something no “name” 4-year university or film engineering and film production trade school can. From day one, you’ll be placed with a professional film production company and receive one-on-one mentoring from award-winning producers and engineers.

With more than 200 locations throughout 48 states, you won’t have to travel thousands of miles for this immersive experience. You learn what it takes to make it in the film business from the inside alongside industry professionals. This includes recording, mixing and mastering, hardware and software, live sound design, and even business skills.

Our curriculum is based on the real world. But we also realize you live in the real world, too. Maybe you can’t travel 100 or even 70 miles to learn film engineering and film production from sound engineers. Maybe you have a job to pay the bills, lack transportation, or even want to stay safe when a worldwide pandemic hits.

The Film Radio Film Connection & CASA Schools has your back. Even before Covid-19 hit the U.S. in February of 2020, we have been designing remote learning opportunities for students wanting to learn from film professionals working in the film industry.

Students and mentors meet via Zoom conferencing software. Students can share their screen with the mentor (or the other way around) and get immediate, live feedback on any project they may be working on. Through this technology, the mentor can collaborate with you directly at home.

But the  FILM CONNECTION takes it to the next level. Your mentors can remotely control the student’s computer to point out and mistakes, adjustments, or ideas during the student’s session. In many ways, this is more productive than in-person training because you and the mentor aren’t working on one computer. Both you and the monitor have full access during the class.

Although this method takes you out of the studio, you’ll actually get more time to improve your sound or work on your portfolio. You’ll be more hands-on with film production than ever before, more projects are started and completed, and your knowledge of the software grows exponentially.

Working with both an academic facilitator/faculty and the mentor, you will get all the necessary software you need, eBooks to study from, and become more familiar with the computer or laptop you’re working with. Our externs learn so much, a few have returned to act as mentors themselves.


But you may be asking yourself: how does an immersive experience work hundreds of miles away or from the opposite coast? Years ago, we were one of the first ONLINE SCHOOLS to offer an online Film Production program coupled with an externship. And we’ve perfected the practice through the years.

Other film production schools online may offer some YouTube videos or standard instruction. The film production online courses may offer hours of virtual learning that can be applied during externship courses or during practice exercises.
