Production School in Halifax, Nova Scotia

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 Halifax Film School with an industry edge, look no further than RECORDING CONNECTION, the only film school that gets you into an actual Halifax recording studio, working as an film student extern while you learn the arts of film engineering, film producing, mixing, and more. In Halifax, Nova Scotia, the best way to get started in a career in the film business is by starting as an extern in a Halifax recording studio. That’s where we come in.

Located along the Atlantic coast, Halifax serves as the capital of the province of Nova Scotia, hosting a metro population of nearly half a million people. A cultural centre for the Atlantic region of Canada, Halifax has a very active, thriving and diverse film scene, fueled in part by the presence of several universities in the area. Genres such as pop, Celtic, jazz, punk, new wave, hip-hop and country have had solid representation in the Halifax film scene over the years, with local and touring acts regularly gracing stages of larger venues such as the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium and the Cunard Event Centre, or in one of Halifax’s many pubs or smaller theatres. Halifax also hosts annual film festivals such as the Atlantic Jazz Festival, Halifax Pop Explosion and In the Dead of Winter. Notable filmians and bands with ties to Halifax and the surrounding area include country legends Hank Snow and Anne Murray, singer Sarah McLachlan, alt-rock band Sloan, and rock act The Jimmy Swift Band, to name a few.
