This October, deadCENTER is teaming up with the IAO to co-host the latest edition of STATIC- a monthly short film series at the IAO Gallery.
Being that it’s the spooky month of October, deadCENTER will showcase some of the best thrillers from the past few years. Included in the program is “Ostium”- an Oklahoma made short film by STATIC founder K. Edward Van Osdol who will be doing a filmmaker Q&A session after the film.
The October edition of STATIC screenings will be Thursday, October 13th from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. The screening is free and open to the public. See you there. BOOO!
deadCENTER will present free short films this Thursday, September 22nd as a part of College Night at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. Films kick off at 7PM and will highlight award winning and highly acclaimed college made animations, narratives and documentaries.
Other free and fun student activities begin at 5PM that evening. September is College Month at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art. To find out more about College Night and the Museum’s student offerings for the rest of September, visit www.okcmoa.com/2011/09/19/college-night-this-thursday.
This Sunday September 25th, deadCENTER staff and volunteers and will lace up our walking shoes to support the AIDS Walk of Oklahoma City- and you can get involved!
The deadCENTER team will meet in front of Texadelphia on Reno Avenue at 12:30PM. From there, will we head over to registration, hydrate, and walk in solidarity for a fellow non-profit. deadCENTER t-shirts are encouraged! There is no fee to walk, but you can help our team raise money by sending people to our fundraising page.
AIDS Walk of Oklahoma City, Inc. is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises awareness and funds for the treatment and prevention of HIV/AIDS in the greater Oklahoma City community. Since 1998, we have distributed more than $575,000 to help fund local programs focusing on HIV prevention, education, and direct services to individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS. Every dollar contributed (minus expenses) goes directly to providing support for a disease that plagues the world and demands social action in prevention, advocacy, and services.
To sign up for our deadCENTER team, email email@example.com. For more info about AIDS Walk OKC, visit www.aidswalkokc.org.
Following a screening of the film PRESSPAUSEPLAY at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, we sat down with three deadCENTER Filmmakers (Gregory Bayne, Darren Hoffman, and Fritz Kierch) to discuss the issues raised in the film. Moderator: Ryan Jewell
For those of you who missed the first screening of the documentary PRESSPAUSEPLAY, you also missed a discussion with three deadCENTER Filmmakers (Gregory Bayne of JENS PULVER: DRIVEN, Darren Hoffman of TRADITION IS A TEMPLE, and Fritz Kiersch of FIRST AND FEMALE) discussing the issues raised in the film. But fear not! our crack team of videographers were on hand to record the entire discussion, and you can watch it on YouTube right here! Or if you prefer to listen on the go, we also have it available in podcast form. Subscribe on iTunes today and automatically get new content as it comes!
Video Producer Tanner Herriott, reporter Katie Kurtz and a team of volunteer photogs were on hand at nearly every deadCENTER event this year, and did a fantastic job of covering it on video. Check out this playlist of their dispatches, and look for more in the coming days.
To try and maximize the opportunity for everyone to see our award winning films, we have made some adjustments to today’s schedule for Harkins. If you’ve been using our online film scheduler, we’ve already updated it so these changes are reflected there. If you prefer to look at dead trees when planning your day, we will have these printed out at all the venue box offices as well.
The latest in our ongoing series of video dispatches it up and it features some great interviews with visiting and local filmmakers as they taken in the fun (if a little windy) Opening Night Party. Watch our deadCENTER video crew talking to people on the roof of the Oklahoma City Museum of Art last night below.
