Production School in Passaic, 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).


If you’re looking for a Passaic Film School with a film industry edge, you’ve come to the right place. The RECORDING CONNECTION is the only film recording school that gets you in the door of an actual Passaic recording studio, working as an film student extern while you learn ins and outs of mixing, film engineering, film production, live film, electronic film-and its many sub-genres (dub step, trance, drum and bass, techno and more), post production film and electronic DJ. Forget the classroom environment; we put you in the heart of the action, in a real Passaic recording studio–the very best place in Passaic to get your start in the film business.
