The tools to turn your talent loose

Whether you’re watching a movie screen, TV monitor, or listening to music in your smartphone, are you fascinated by seeing the work of a team of writers, producers, directors, camera operators, lighting technicians, video editors, digital video effects designers, and sound engineers and producers all come to life? The Audio & Film School at LaSalle College Vancouver offers diploma programs in Digital Film & Video, Professional Recording Arts, and Digital Photography.

Jump start your career in the film industry, right at the heart of the action

This is for storytellers who want to see their work on big or small screens. It's also cameras and lighting, studios and filming locations, technical skills, and the artistry of filmmaking. If you're ready to shoot, edit and make stories come to life, this program is made for you!

We don't just listen to music - we live it!

There's a whole lot more to this program than just the fact that you'll be working in a professional studio built by two of the industry's top sound designers. But that alone gives you a feel for how seriously we take what we do. And how seriously we'll expect you to do the same as you learn to record, edit, mix, and produce audio.
