Production School in St. Catharines, 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 are looking for a St. Catharines Film School with an industry edge, you’ve come to the right place! RECORDING CONNECTION is the only school that gets you in the door of an actual St. Catharines recording studio, working as an film student extern as you learn film engineeringfilm producing, mixing, and more. In St. Catharines and the Niagara region, there’s no smarter way to break into the film business than by starting as an extern in a St. Catharines area recording studio. That’s where we come in.
