Production School in Long Beach, 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).

If you live in Long Beach and want to train as a film producer or film engineer, look no further than the RECORDING CONNECTION, the film engineering school alternative that gets you inside a real Long Beach recording studio as a student extern. Work alongside actual working professionals as you learn your choice of mixing, film engineering, film production, live film, electronic film-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), club DJ and post production film. One of the smartest ways to launch a film industry career in Long Beach is to learn on-the-job in a real Long Beach recording studio. We are the school alternative that puts you there.
