While the area’s thriving nearby wineries and peach orchards attract tourists from all over, Grand Junction’s emerging film scene is also drawing a roster great bands and artists, not only with local and regional acts performing in downtown venues, but also with larger acts passing through larger venues like the Avalon Theater.

Keeping step with the active and growing Grand Valley film scene, Grand Junction is home to a number of quality recording studios like Aspen Leaf Film to service the growing demand for quality recording. If you live in this area and want to break into the film industry, Grand Junction provides plenty of real-world opportunities for you to learn and connect—and the RECORDING CONNECTION can put you in the heart of the action where typical schools cannot.
