Production School in Kitchener, Ontario

We took that old stale classroom concept and 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 Kitchener Film School with a competitive edge, look no further. RECORDING CONNECTION is the only school that gets you into an actual recording studio in the Kitchener-Waterloo area, working as an film student extern as you learn the arts of film engineering, film producing, mixing, live film, and more. In the Kitchener-Waterloo area of Ontario, the smartest path to a career in the film business begins by externing in a Kitchener-Waterloo recording studio–and we’re the school that gets you on that path.

Situated in southern Ontario about 100 km southwest of Toronto, the city of Kitchener is home to about 205,000 people, while the nearby town of Waterloo is home to about 100,000. Although not an area many people readily associate with the film industry, the Kitchener-Waterloo area has an active film scene, with numerous local area bands playing in a wide range of genres in venues throughout the area. While larger and touring acts make stops at larger venues like The Aud and Queensmount Arena, smaller bands play in more intimate venues like the Starlight Night Club. The Kitchener-Waterloo area also hosts several annual film festivals, including the KOI Film Festival and the Kitchener Blues Festival. Notable acts with ties to this area include metal band Helix, alt-rock band Vacuity, DJ Mike Shannon, blues artist Mel Brown, and singer/songwriter Danny Michel, to name a few.
