Production School in Denton, 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’re looking for a great Denton film engineering school alternative, you’ve just found one of the most innovative options available. The RECORDING CONNECTION is a program area of Film Radio Film Connection & CASA Schools. Film Connection is the film school alternative that gets you inside an actual Denton recording studio, where you will train as an film student extern and learn film engineering, mixing, film production, live film, electronic film-and its many sub-genres (trance, trip hop, house film, acid house and more), post production film and electronic DJ. In Denton, Texas, there’s no better way to get hooked up with the recording industry than to extern in a Denton recording studio–and no better post-secondary institution than the RECORDING CONNECTION to get your foot in the door.

Located in north Texas, the city of Denton is home to roughly 120,000 people, and is the home of the University of North Texas. For a town its size, Denton hosts a very active and vibrant film scene, largely fueled by the university’s well-known College of Film. Numerous noteworthy bands and filmians have ties to Denton and/or the university, including Norah Jones, Deep Blue Something, Bowling for Soup, Midlake, The Rocket Summer, and the late Roy Orbison, just to name a few. While the school itself serves as a hotspot for jazz, a solid indie scene has grown up around it, attracting attention not only from the college crowd but also from the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex located just south of Denton. Paste Magazine recently ranked Denton as the ‘Best Film Scene” in America.
