Studio Oklahoma was created by The Oklahoma Film + Music Office to provide opportunities for like-minded community partners to support Oklahoma’s thriving creative class and serve as a platform to promote and connect Oklahoma’s filmmakers and music makers to national and international audiences.
To learn more, please read our press release.
The Oklahoma Film + Music Office (OF+MO) hosted the third annual Film Networking and Mentoring Series May 8, 2018 at The Paramount Room in Oklahoma City. This year’s session, titled “How to Start a Film Production Company”, invited audiences to learn about what it takes to start and sustain a production company in Oklahoma from three local filmmakers who have each found a unique platform for producing and distributing their content.
We would like to thank our special guests Ryan Bellgardt of Boiling Point Media, Kyle Roberts of Reckless Abandonment Pictures and Russ Kirkpatrick of Kirkpatrick & Kinslow Productions for their time and unique insight on starting their individual film production companies in Oklahoma. Thank you, also, to The Allie Lauren Project for their incredible performance.
Looking for more networking opportunities? Attend the deadCenter Film Festival June 7-10 in Oklahoma City! In addition to the festival’s screening and networking events, OF+MO will host a series of free educational panels on Saturday, June 10. While an All-Access Pass is required to attend the majority of deadCenter screenings and events, OF+MO’s sponsored panels on Saturday will be free and open to the public.
Additionally, if you are a moviemaker considering filming in Oklahoma, please review the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program or browse thousands of locations in our Oklahoma Locations Directory which can help set the scene for your newest production! Browse our crew call page, call for entries page for job opportunites.
Be sure to follow us on social media for updated information on the Oklahoma film and music industries and where we will be next.
We look forward to continued conversations and providing on-going mentorship opportunities in the future. Keep an eye out for information on our next mentoring event in the series this fall that will have a music emphasis.
