New Series at TCC Opens Doors to Oklahoma’s Film Industry


With the rapid expansion of TV and film projects in Oklahoma and stars like Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese shooting feature films in Tulsa, Tulsa Community College has focused its popular “I Can’t” series on the film industry.

This free monthly series begins to answer how you can be an extra on a film set or how to act for the camera. “I Can’t: Film Edition” opens the door to how everyday people can break into the industry.

“With Oklahoma garnering attention from Hollywood as a prime filming location, we wanted to find a way to connect the community with opportunities to get involved,” said Annina Collier, Dean and George Kaiser Family Foundation Endowed Chair of the Center for Creativity. “These free workshops will show you how to get started as you learn from national and local experts.”

Session topics include being an extra on set, shooting video with your camera, and more.
