Audio Engineering and Film Production School in Akron, Ohio 

Are you an film engineering or film production student looking for a school that will give you the skills you need to pursue a career in the industry? The Akron Film Connection film engineering and film production school puts students in a fully immersive environment, so they can learn from professional film engineers and film producers in real-world recording studios.

Students don’t just learn from textbooks—they learn through hands-on experience with the latest gear. They learn from experts who have worked on projects for major record labels and have extensive knowledge of the industry. This is invaluable for aspiring engineers and producers who want to make it big in their chosen field.

Akron Film Production School

Film software and hardware seem to improve with each passing year, but making film is much more than using the latest and greatest gear. You’ll learn how traditional recording practices (choosing mics, connectors, monitors, and so on) still apply in a digital world. And you’ll do it all from a professional recording studio.

This means you can put what you learn into practice instead of waiting for “lab time” in traditional school. And you won’t have to wait for your turn to get feedback from your teacher. With Film Connection, you get one-on-one attention from your mentor throughout the program. Get questions answered as soon as you ask them.

There’s No Reason to Take Out Massive Student Loans

For many, attending a name university is out of reach for many reasons. Tuition is a concern, proximity to the school, and the time involved in really learning film engineering or film production in a classroom can be too much for many students. That’s why Film Connection was created.

Our tuition is just a fraction of those four-year universities and we don’t require a bunch of prerequisites you have to take (and pay for). Choose what you want to learn and when you want to learn it–we’ll work with you on your schedule. With hundreds of locations around the nation–including Akron–you won’t need to uproot your life. With remote learning opportunities, you have even more access.

Learn the skills you need to take your idea from paper to the big screen.

Real world film education by filmmakers for filmmakers, optimized for today!
