If you have ever dreamed of working in film and television, now is your chance. Productions are actively seeking Oklahoma based crew.
HOW DO OFTA COURSES WORK?
OFTA courses are specifically designed to teach the practical skills and knowledge wanted by employers in the industry. Our faculty is made up of Hollywood industry veterans who have worked on some of the biggest movies and won some of the most coveted awards so nothing we teach is theory - it is all grounded in what you really need to know for your first day on the job.
Split into three modules, each module lasts 4 weeks and consists of a minimum of 2 x 3 hour lessons per week taught at Green Pastures Studio in Oklahoma City. Specialization and experience modules may require longer lessons depending on the specialization.
WHO CAN APPLY?
OFTA students must be over the age of 18 on the first day of class. We accept applicants from all walks of life, experience, and ages. From film school students who are looking to round out their education with in depth practical training so they are ready and able to step onto a Hollywood production set, through to carpenters, electricians, bookkeepers, and those leaving military service who are looking for their next career move. All our classes are held over evenings and weekends so that you can get the training you need while still working your current job.
Bottom line: If you love the idea of working in the movies we would love for you to apply.
