Production School in Ottawa, Ontario

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’re looking for an Ottawa Film School with an industry edge, you’ve come to the right place! RECORDING CONNECTION is the only school that places you as an film student extern inside an actual Ottawa recording studio, where you will receive one-on-one training from a seasoned industry professional in the arts of film recording, film production, mixing and more. In Ottawa, Ontario, there is simply no smarter way to get started in the film business than by externing in an Ottawa recording studio. We’re the school that gets your foot in the door.

Located in northeastern Ontario just across the Ottawa River from Quebec, the city of Ottawa serves as Canada’s national capital, anchoring a metro population of over a million people. Although not a city many people might readily associate with the film industry in general, Ottawa actually has a diverse, thriving film scene, offering plenty of real-world opportunities for aspiring film producers, film engineers, and recording artists. A broad range of genres is represented in the Ottawa scene, ranging from classical and jazz to punk, metal, and hip-hop. Live film can be heard virtually any night of the week, from both local and touring bands who play in venues such as Scotiabank Place, Zaphod Beeblebrox, Mavericks, and any of a large number of smaller pubs and venues. A number of noteworthy filmians have ties to Ottawa, and include Alanis Morissette, Bruce Cockburn, Paul Anka and Kathleen Edwards, to name a few.
