Oklahoma Film Institute


This will be a series of five, three day clinics. The three day clinics will be held on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays over five weeks, (excluding the 4th of July holiday) from June 5 – July 12.

The clinics will cover::

  • Motion Picture Production
  • Script Writing
  • Directing
  • Cinematography
  • Editing

We believe the clinic design allows people to enter the areas of filmmaking that interests them --requiring less time and tuition. We think you’ll agree.
