Production School in Glendale, 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).

Glendale, CA is home to legendary Armenian-American Heavy Metal band System of a Down. Serg Tankian and the boys have sold over 40 million records to date and have been nominated for four Grammy Awards. You also may not realize that some of your favorite artists have recorded in Glendale with Film Connection mentors at studios you could learn.

Located less than 10 miles to the North of Los Angeles, Glendale is also home to Dreamworks Studios. The maker of the Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, and Madagascar franchises, Dreamworks has won three Academy Awards, including one for best original song. But entertainment isn’t limited to the big screen in Glendale.
