Production School in Highland Park, New Jersey

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).

Your Highland Park, New Jersey AUDIO RECORDING SCHOOL

Billing itself as New Jersey’s “First Green Community,” Highland Park is located along the northern bank of the Raritan River. With Rutgers University close by and the Johnson & Johnson headquarters located just across the river in New Brunswick, Highland Park has established itself as a comfortable place to live.

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.

Featuring a Farmer’s Market, an annual “Arts in Park” event and even an outdoor movie theater in the summer, the city is lively and diverse. Donaldson Park offers tennis and basketball courts, ball fields, play area, and dog park along the river. Complete with maple-lined neighborhood streets as well as a vibrant downtown area, Highland Park is an excellent place to live.

But don’t let that “bedroom community” vibe fool you into thinking you have to leave your neighborhood to lay down hip-hop beats or engineer ear-splitting guitar solos. To learn about the film industry, you don’t have to go to New York, Newark, or even New Brunswick. The Film Connection in Highland Park will give you access to state of the art equipment and the opportunity to work with industry professionals.
