In the spring of 1999, a group of Hollywood professionals founded The Los Angeles Film School. Their goal was to establish an institution where industry veterans can share their knowledge of film production with a new generation of filmmakers. The Los Angeles Film School expanded its offerings in 2004 with the addition of the Los Angeles Recording School recording engineering certificate program. Today, the school offers associate and bachelor’s degrees in multiple disciplines across the entertainment and media industry, including animation, game, entertainment business, film, music production and recording arts.
