Get Hands-On Mentorship at our Oklahoma Film Production School. Learn from Industry Insiders.

If you’re serious about pursuing a career in film, the Oklahoma Film Connection is by far the smartest choice you can make.  We provide you opportunities to connect to the film industry that no other film school can provide, because instead of training you in a classroom, we place you as an extern inside a real film production company for one-on-one training with a seasoned film professional—all for a fraction of the cost of most film schools! You’ll make valuable industry connections, and gain a solid bank of work experience, all while you are a student.

Most film schools like to tell you the best place to learn cinematography, film editing, producing, directing or screenwriting is in their classrooms and on-campus production facilities.  But ask anyone who actually WORKS in film, and they’ll tell you the best place to learn these things is on-the-job and on the set of real film productions.  This is exactly where the Film Connection puts you, from day one.

You can see from these examples that film productions come to Oklahoma on a regular basis—and that doesn’t even include the indie film scene or the ongoing local productions that happen here all the time.  There are plenty of opportunities to get plugged into the film business in Oklahoma, and the Oklahoma Film Connection can get you closer to the action than any other film school can.

Explore our Innovative Film Programs and Courses in Oklahoma. Get on a Streamlined Path to the Film Industry.

With our school, you won’t spend a single day in a college or trade school classroom.  Instead, you’ll be placed into a real film production facility near where you live, and paired with a film professional who will guide you one-on-one through our structured curriculum.  Whether your interest is in cinematography, screenwriting, editing or directing, we’ll place you with a mentor who specializes in your field of interest and who will tailor the curriculum to fit your needs.  And if your ambition includes breaking into Hollywood to make your own movies, we can help with that, too: your mentor can structure your program around developing your own film idea from concept to completion—and when you’re ready, we’ll arrange for us to PITCH YOUR FILM to real film executives in Los Angeles!  (They don’t call us the Film Connection for nothing.)

One piece of advice: whatever you do, don’t get buried in debt with your education, because that can kill your career before it ever starts.  Other film schools charge such ridiculously high tuition rates that you’re practically forced into debt.  Not the Oklahoma Film Connection.  We keep our rates at around 75% LESS than the competition, so you can focus on developing your film career instead of getting bogged down with student debt.

To make it in the film business, one thing is certain: you won’t get the experience or connections you need by sitting in an isolated classroom.  Get ahead of the game by training INSIDE the film industry, as an extern, not just a film student. If you’re ready to take a step that can truly launch your film career, APPLY NOW FOR FREE, and we’ll give you the details.
