Production School in Burbank, California

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’re looking for a way to get into show business – or just want to watch it in action – Burbank is a good place to start. Scenes from La La Land, Jurassic Park: Lost World, and Hangover 2 were filmed here.

Burbank is also home to several TV shows, including The Big Bang Theory, The Conan O’Brien Show, and the Ellen Degeneres show. Disney, Paramount, Warner Bros., Sony, and Universal are just a few of the entertainment heavyweights that call Burbank home.

The premier location for television, movie, and film production since the 60s, the town has grown into a media mecca. While the filming of movies and TV shows dominate the headlines in Burbank, there are several opportunities to hear some good film. The open-air Starlight Bowl seats up to 5,000 spectators and offers an incredible view of the nearby foothills.

You don’t have to go into extreme debt to go to Film Production and Audio Engineering School

We can train you in a real recording studio for far less. Play it smart–get on the inside track, and get connected as you get educated. Our film recording school is a highly effective and affordable way to start your film engineering career.

The 20,000 square foot iHeartRadio Theater opened its doors in 2012 and gives performers a place to have tour rehearsals, hold release parties, and other activities. Located in the Burbank Studios, the theater used to be home to the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

It makes sense that film would thrive in a town dominated by the tv and movie industries. Imagine an action movie without a score, a series without play in film, or a filmal without, well, you get it. Everything would feel just a little bit off.
