Sept. 18--EDMOND -- The Fine Arts Institute of Edmond is partnering with the deadCenter Film Festival to present a free film seminar for Edmond area high school and college students on Oct. 9.
The seminar, from 1 to 4 p.m., is open to all high school and college students and will cover aspects of the filmmaking process. It will include moviemaking in Oklahoma, choosing topics for films, writing screenplays, acting, auditioning for films, film production, available crew positions, camera equipment, film education programs in Oklahoma, film festivals and distribution.
The goal is to give every participant an overview of the entire filmmaking process, said Shannon Price, Fine Arts Institute executive director.
The film seminar will be led by deadCenter Executive Director Lance McDaniel and deadCenter Director of Programming Kim Haywood.
McDaniel is a former Edmond student who has worked on 14 feature films, including the Oscar-winning "Million Dollar Baby." His last film was "Crazy Enough," a family comedy starring Chris Kattan.
Haywood graduated from Edmond Memorial High School and has led deadCenter for 10 years as a volunteer and employee.
