First Capital Film Crew Institute – September 2022 Workshop

Meridian Technology Center is partnering with the Film Education Institute of Oklahoma (FEIO) to bring a hands-on film production workshop to Guthrie, OK on Sept. 23rd and 24th.

Participants will get an up close look at how Hollywood filmed the Oscar award-winning Rain Man (1988), starring Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise, by recreating a classic scene filmed in Guthrie.

Participants will gain industry level experience and practical, on-set training in roles and departments such as production, art, camera, costumes, continuity, electric, grip, hair, makeup, props and sound.
