Within Downtown neighborhoods http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neighborhoods_of_Oklahoma_City Oklahoma City's Historic Film Row https://www.facebook.com/FilmRowOKC, deadCenter has a home that operates year round providing education and support year round to indie and student film makers. October 10-11 and 17-18 there will be free student education offerings regarding films and film making during designated school Fall Break. Pre-registration is required. Seating is limited.
deadCenter Film Festival http://www.deadcenterfilm.org/ is an indie event with increasing national and international visibility that happens in June annually in Oklahoma City. Learning within this environment increases the visiblity of the student artist, by allowing them to interface with the resources and persons already actively formally involved in film making in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma has many opportunities for film making, including financial incentives from the state. These deadCenter workshops will consider needs of the high school filmmaker : choosing subjects, screenplay, film production, crew positions and roles, camera equipment operations, formal film education programs in Oklahoma, film festivals and film happenings in Oklahoma and the process of film distribution.
The program will be led by deadCenter staffers : Executive Director Lance McDaniel http://distinctlyoklahoma.com/cover-story/lancemcdaniel/ and Programming and Education Director Kim Haywood. http://www.okmag.com/40-Under-40-2011/Kim-Haywood/ deadCenter sponsors educational events around the state AT area high schools as well.
