Production School in New Brunswick, 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).

Although New Brunswick, NJ isn’t on the tip of everyone’s tongue with regard to the film business, this city of 55,000 in northeastern New Jersey has been a major player in New Jersey’s film scene, and continues to be an influence today. New Brunswick’s film scene (fueled in part by Rutgers University) has been a longtime hotspot for rock, punk, and indie/underground film, having spawned such bands as The Smithereens and Bon Jovi, as well as modern rock acts Thursday, Pavement, Streetlight Manifesto, The Gaslight Anthem and others. Independent film continues to be a staple of the New Brunswick area, with indie labels Ferret Records and Don Giovanni Records making their home here.

Keeping step with the active film scene, New Brunswick is home to several quality recording studios–and if you want to be trained as an film engineer, film producer, sound designer or live film tech, one of these studios could become your personal classroom.
