Production School in Peterborough, Ontario, 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).


Congratulations–you’ve just found the most innovative Peterborough Film School available. We’re RECORDING CONNECTION, the only school that gets you into an actual Peterborough recording studio, working as an film student extern while you learn the arts of film recording, film producing, film producing, mixing, live film and more. In Peterborough, Ontario, the best way to get your start in the film business is to extern inside a Peterborough recording studio. That’s where we come in.
