The Oklahoma Film Institute at Oklahoma City Community College will present its annual OFI Cinema Clinics June 20 through July 29.
The program consists of a series of five, three-day clinics held on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays (excluding the July 4 holiday), and will cover motion picture production, script writing, directing, cinematography and editing.
The cost of each clinic is $300. For more information, visit www.occc.edu/ofi.
“We believe the clinic design allows people to enter the areas of filmmaking that interest them, requiring less time and tuition,” said Artist-in-Residence Gray Frederickson.
Frederickson is an Oscar-winning producer whose films include the “Godfather” trilogy, “Apocalypse Now,” “One From the Heart” and “The Outsiders.”
