Oklahoma city public schools | “5th hour”

Meridian tech | RAIN MAN (1988)

Film Education Institute of Oklahoma partnered with Meridian Technology Center’s First Capital Film Crew Institute to bring a hands-on film production workshop to individuals interested in pursuing a career in the film industry from September 23 to 24 at Meridian’s South Campus in Guthrie.

The FEIO workshops are designed to provide students with an understanding of the requirements and rigors of filmmaking, as well as the experience of completing a project.

Participants enjoyed an up-close look at how Hollywood filmed the Oscar-award-winning movie Rain Man (1988), starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise while recreating a classic scene filmed in Guthrie.

In just two days, participants gained industry-level experience and practical, on-set training in roles and departments such as production, art, camera, costumes, continuity, electric, grip, hair, makeup, props, and sound.
