The Film Education Institute of Oklahoma (FEIO) is proud to announce a partnership with the Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO) to continue to grow the film industry in Oklahoma by creating an educated, skilled workforce.
“The growth and development of Oklahoma’s local workforce is a critical component to continue meeting the needs of the state’s steadily growing film and television industry,” said OF+MO Director Tava Maloy Sofsky. “We’re proud to continue our partnership with FEIO on their latest production workshop as they strategically engage, educate and inspire local high school students who we hope will be the future of Oklahoma’s film and television industry workforce for many years to come.”
This partnership will ensure that Oklahomans who want to have a career in the film industry have access to workshops and clinics that will develop and sharpen their skillset. Both organizations have a shared mission to support the Oklahoma film industry and crew base.
“The FEIO is grateful for the OF+MO’s continued commitment to bettering our state’s rapidly growing industry,” stated Trevor Rogers, Executive Director of the FEIO. “Film education is at the forefront of building a robust workforce for years to come and this contribution will go towards bettering the lives of many Oklahomans through this exciting new endeavor.”
As the film and television industry continues to grow in Oklahoma, an educated and skilled workforce is needed to meet this demand. Partnering with the OF+MO is crucial to continue to develop the Oklahoman crew base.
The FEIO is a nonprofit dedicated to increasing Oklahoma’s workforce through educational workshops, curriculum and clinics. They have strategically partnered with educational and industry organizations to help this vision become a reality.
