Film Programs

We do things a little differently at AutismOklahoma. We choose to. We are surrounded by beautifully brilliant and different minds every day. We don’t subscribe to “if we build it they will come”. Quite the opposite. When common threads of interest are identified by our families, we create their programs. Like when film making became a hot topic.

We created Invisible Layers Productions, a program about film-making!  Invisible Layers Autism, Resources, Parents, Oklahoma

Invisible Layers Productions is a pre-employment club for young adults who have autism and who are interested in film-making.  We provide education, social opportunities, and ways to build your own demo reel of experience.  Invisible Layers has 10-12 participants each year, but most participants engage for more than 1 year.  

 The Invisible Layers team works together weekly to do amazing things!

CREATIVE WORK – Invisible Layers film makers use their amazing talents and skills to produce creative films!  Examples include Even in Death and the Girl And The Green Sword.

EXPERIENCE WITH CUSTOMERS – Invisible Layers also provides custom film week for our favorite customers.  These films are on websites , for corporate events, on social media, and on television.  Some of our best customers include, Liquidfish, Youth and Family Services, Junior Achievement and more.    

EDUCATION – Invisible Layers is also a classroom that provides education.  The group of 12 young adults with autism meet with the program’s director and community mentors each week learning about storyboards, scriptwriting, lighting, sets, aftereffects, animation, software, careers in the visual arts industry and more. They travel to location sets and have their own YouTube Channel under the channel Invisible Players.   

How do we measure success?  In the confidence, capabilities, and in a willingness to try new things.  We have been amazed at the results!       

 If you are interested in being involved, please let us know, but don’t be surprised if we don’t have an opening right away.  We need more funding to help more people!
