A Day in the Life of Our StudentsRecording Connection for Audio Engineering & Music Production student Kaiser Hazard is enjoying soaking up the knowledge he’s getting at Engine Room Audio (New York, NY): “I really truly love this school. I’m in awe at how quickly I’m learning and grasping the information required to be an efficient audio engineer and music producer…This is a very enlightening experience and I’m truly grateful to be a part of it. I’ve had opportunities to create songs utilizing methods that have helped me not only grow as an aspiring audio engineer but as an artist and music producer as well. Many other artists and producers don’t have the opportunity to be a part of [that]. I’m creating a solid resume as I move along, all while building and expanding upon a mass of knowledge, insight, experience and wisdom from RRFC and Engine Room Studio. I couldn’t be more grateful. Thank you to Mark, Nacor, Vinnie, Derrick, Serj, Scottie and everyone else for contributing to my growth. And to think this is only the beginning. Wow! Training today with Mark, I learned how to create a roadmap which guidelines the song making process. What a powerful and timeless piece of knowledge!” Film student, Benjamin Cruz (Boston, MA) is heeding his mentor, producer/screenwriter Richard Brandes’ advice: “With the help of my mentor…I will be executing my very first feature length script. After enjoying films like Seven Samurai, Mean Streets, and Reservoir Dogs, I’ve found myself taking a liking to iconic directors whose stories come to life on screen. Of course, I began to wonder, ‘How do they breathe life into their characters?’ and ‘How do they manage to capture ‘real people’ on camera?’ That’s where ‘Screenplay by Syd Field’ comes in. I have never written a script of such length… so jumping onwards to a full feature length film is definitely a leap of faith (especially for someone like myself who wants to be sure that he can make the film to begin with). Having never dealt with a project of this size, it’s exciting and new yet [also] terrifying…Taking what I learned from my own short film scripts and Syd Field’s book, I look forward to breaking into the industry with a topic that touches viewers’ hearts.” *Attention RRFC students: Would you like to be in our newsletter?
