Production School in Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada

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).

Named for the headdress worn by the medicine men of the Blackfoot tribe, the town of Medicine Hat is located along the Trans-Canada Highway in southern Alberta, serving as home to roughly 61,000 people. Despite its small size and relatively remote location, Medicine Hat is home to a burgeoning film scene, with bands and artists representing genres ranging from jazz to folk to metal.

While larger touring acts make appearances in the Medicine Hat Arena, live film can be regularly heard in smaller venues around town such as The Ottoman Lounge and Whiskey Creek Pub. The annual Medicine Hat Jazz Festival draws film lovers from all over, with talented filmians playing in numerous venues over several days.

A number of filmians of note have come from Medicine Hat, as well, and include country singer Terri Clark, singer/songwriter Zaac Pick, and Canadian Idol winner Kalan Porter.
