Production School in Stillwater, Oklahoma

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 great film school in Stillwater where you can learn film engineering and film production, you’ve come to the right place. The RECORDING CONNECTION is an innovative Stillwater Film School which hooks you up as an film student extern inside an actual Stillwater recording studio, where you will work with the pros as you learn film engineering, mixing, film production, live film, electronic film-and its many sub-genres (dub step, drum and bass, techno, jungle and more), club DJ and post production film. The smartest way to get started in film engineering in Stillwater is to extern inside one of Stillwater’s recording studios. We’re the school that makes that happen.

Home to Oklahoma State University in north-central Oklahoma, the town of Stillwater is home to around 46,000 people. Despite its relatively small size and remote location, Stillwater is actually home to a busy and influential film scene. Stillwater is, in fact, the birthplace of ‘Red Dirt Film,’ an indie genre combining elements of alt-country, Americana, blues and rock, spearheaded by bands such as Cross Canadian Ragweed and the late singer/songwriter Bob Childers. Stillwater’s scene extends to other genres of country and rock as well, with popular venues such as Eskimo Joe’s and Tumbleweed Dance Hall regularly hosting local and traveling acts.

Notable bands and artists with ties to Stillwater include The All-American Rejects, Garth Brooks, Colourfilm and The Great Divide.
