Production School in Brownsville, Texas

We took that old stale classroom concept, rebuilt and upgraded it by putting your classroom in a professional recording studio. Then we emptied out all the other students and left only YOU and YOUR TEACHER (yay for one-on-one learning!) who happens to be a pro film producer (with killer credits) to train you privately (at your pace, full time, part time, nights or weekends available).


If you thought you couldn’t find an film engineering school in Brownsville, Texas, look again! The RECORDING CONNECTION is a program area of Film Radio Film Connection & CASA Schools, a trade school or post-secondary institution but we’re anything but ordinary in our approach. Film Connection is an innovative Brownsville film engineering school alternative that doesn’t send its students into classrooms. Instead, we get you inside a Brownsville recording studio, where you will work as an film student extern and learn film production, film engineering, mixing, live film, electronic film-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), club DJ and post production film. In Brownsville, Texas, we believe there’s no better way to launch a career in film than by externing in a Brownsville recording studio. We’re the ones who can make that happen.
