Here are some odds and ends from the movie industry:

• Oklahoma City's five-day premiere deadCenter Film Festival has ended after showing more than 120 films last week, but a mobile application that launched publicly during the festival is designed to help the movie industry connect to services and locations around the state.

The Oklahoma Film and Music Office has launched a free production guide app on the iTunes store (sold by Reel-Scout, Inc.) to provide support for filmmakers who want to make movies in Oklahoma. The app includes 1,200 photographs of potential film sites as well as information about 800 local crew members and support services available, a news release noted.

To use it, potential filmmakers and other users can search by keyword or type in the kind of venue they're looking for — bars, parks, churches, hospitals, etc. — narrow it by subcategory and desired geographic location and the app will call up a list of options.

They can do the same thing to find crew members or other support services, whether they need promotional help, equipment rental, catering services or other tasks to finish the movie.

Previously, the information was available on the Oklahoma Film & Music Office's website, www.ok.gov/oklahomafilm.

• For those who love classic movies and trivia, a new free app from the Turner Classic Movies channel is available on the iTunes store — TCM Trivia — for iPhones, iPads and iPods. Hundreds of questions in the app cover a variety of genres, such as Pop Culture Cinema, Musicals & Romance, Tough Guys, etc. Through Apple's Game Center, users also can compete with friends.
