Your Tulsa Film School Alternative

Why go to a larger city with an expensive film program that gives you nothing for your tuition when you’ve got a killer film school right here in Tulsa? Tulsa Film Connection will not only provide you with a top-level film education, but give you experience on actual filming projects and your very first industry contacts. Traditional film schools are known as a huge waste of money in the industry. We’ve cut the fat and brought in local filmmakers to mentor our students. You can pick our 6-month behind the scenes track that partners you with local industry pros or really go for it with our 8-month directors track. Our directors program will feature you, along with your local mentors, writing, shooting, and editing your project. In addition, every student gets a dream mentor, an industry expert based in Los Angeles. Prepare to pitch like the pros because we’ll be flying you out to L.A. during the final week of your work to have your own Hollywood pitch meeting with someone who regularly green-lights projects. Other film schools dream of offering this kind of access to its students.

Located in northeast Oklahoma, the city of Tulsa is the second largest in the state, home to nearly 400,000 people, and anchoring a surrounding metro population of nearly 1 million. Much of Tulsa's early growth came from of an oil boom in the early 20th century; as a result, Tulsa is home to one of the highest concentrations of historic art-deco architecture in the country, which has been a favorite backdrop for filmmakers over the years. 

Major movies, commercials, TV shows and documentaries are filmed in and around Tulsa on a regular basis, thanks in part to generous tax and rebate incentives offered to filmmakers by the state of Oklahoma. Some of the movies that have been filmed here include Phenomenon, The Killer Inside Me, The Frighteners, Rumble Fish, UHF, Four Sheets to the Wind, and the Francis Ford Coppola classic The Outsiders, just to name a few. If you are thinking of a career as a film producer, film director, film editor or otherwise, Tulsa affords more opportunities than you might think.

The secret to FILM CONNECTION's success is our mentor-apprentice (extern) approach. During our inexpensive, 6-month course, you'll be paired with a working film or television professional who gives you one-on-one training on real film and video shoots. The fruit of our revolutionary system is in our graduates; over 70 percent of them get hired in the industry, many times before they even finish our program. You owe it to yourself to see what FILM CONNECTION of Tulsa can do for your career!
