Wonderful school and staff. I graduated from the video and tv production program as well as the advanced graphics and animation program a few years back.Top of the line equipment to learn on. Cameras, attachments, a full studio set up, out in the field learning. All hands on. Its honestly the time of your life and you forget you're even in school! If I had the time, I'd be back in a heartbeat! It's one of those places you never want to leave and are sad to go!

I loved the school. I graduated in the class of September 1992. I believe I was first out of the graduating class to start at a local radio station in the Hudson valley area, WHUC 1230 AM and 93.5 FM WRVW. I loved the small classroom size. I think their were maybe 11 to13 others in my class. We really were like a small family. We all worked and lifted up other class mates at times when things got tough, or so we though. I remember Charlee Mertz better known as the money man Lol. I see Tom Hawn is still employed by Tom Brownlie. I often wonder if the classroom size is still kept small ? The staff was always great to me. I know for myself, back in 1992 I was a little nervous at times wondering if I had made the right decision on this school and wondered if I would make it threw till graduation day Etc. ? The staff offered any extra help I may have needed even going as far as to let me come in much earlier to use any and all studio's, any equipment as well as to even afford extra help from the instructors. They even helped me put my resume together. I owe a great deal of debt to all the staff for everything they did to help me back in the day. It was a lot of fun and I would do it all over again if I had to at the same school. Tom Brownlie is a total stand up guy.From the class of 1992. Tom Lynch
