We're excited to announce that this winter, with the help of our partners we will be hosting a film production workshop. It will take place from December 27th to December 30th in Oklahoma City. During the workshop students will work under industry professionals, gain knowledge on different crew positions, and what it's truly like to work on a film set.
Our goal is to create a concrete foundation that will help guide students to find a position they're passionate about while educating them. Not only that, but the workshop is aimed to help connect students to outside sources that will allow them to take the knowledge they've gained and to apply it to future productions.
Students will work alongside our instructors. Each instructor works in the film industry and have years of experience. Their experience ranges from different features including, the Thor Trilogy and the 2020 Oscar awarded film Minari.
We hope to help inspire the future of Oklahoma filmmakers.
