We know you’re a few hours from L.A, but wouldn’t it be cool to be able to hang out with all your old friends, not spend a fortune on film school, and still learn everything you need to know about movie-making? Now you can. We’ve brought the Film Connection film school alternative to Bakersfield. That’s right, cats, it’s all there for the taking. We put you in touch with a working moviemaker and they show you the ropes. No joke. Cool, right? We’re Film Connection. Totally fresh. Redefining film school.
The list of well-known movies that have been filmed in and around Bakersfield is understandably long, and includes Thelma & Louise, Wag the Dog, The Cell, the latest re-make of Star Trek (2009), and even such classic films as Hitchock’s Psycho and North by Northwest. Additionally, television production is no stranger to Bakersfield, as the recent TV series Jericho was shot here.
