09:00 am - 04/01/2017

@ Oklahoma City Community College

7777 S May Ave
Oklahoma City OK  73159



deadCenter Film Institute is partnering with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office and Oklahoma City Community College to host a free Film Fair!

The event will take place on the OCCC campus and will include a Film Technology Fair, Equipment Demonstrations, and a Screenwriting Seminar. Oklahoma City Community College is located at 7777 South May Avenue, Oklahoma City, OK 73159. ***The event is free and open to people of all ages and skill levels.***

The Film Technology Fair will be held inside OCCC’s 6,000 square foot soundstage and will feature the latest cameras, lights, sound, and technical equipment being used to make feature films and videos. The fair will be hosted by Oscar winner Gray Frederickson, producer of The Godfather, Part II, and Apocalypse Now, and will include several OCCC professors and local professionals on hand to answer questions.

Steve Mathis, an Oklahoma Gaffer who created the lighting for Patriot Games, Moulin Rouge, Wolverine, and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, will lead a series of Equipment Demonstrations about lighting starting at 9:00 am. Mathis will be followed by presentations every half hour about camera movement, pulling focus, rigging lights, and other equipment related discussions led by graduates and professors from the OCCC program.

The Screenwriting Seminar will take place simultaneously in an OCCC classroom outside of the soundstage. Greg Mellott, the director of the Film and Video Studies program at OCCC, will lead the writing seminar. Mellott is an accomplished screenwriter who wrote major Hollywood action films for Jackie Chan, David Caruso, and Dolph Lundgren before moving to Oklahoma to take over the OCCC program. Since his move, Mellott has written and directed several narrative films and documentaries, winning a Heartland Emmy for The Grand Energy Transition.

This Film Fair is joint venture between deadCenter Film, OF+MO, and OCCC to provide ongoing education and training for the film industry in Oklahoma. For information on how you can help support this programs and others like it, please visit www.deadcenterfilm.org/donate.
