Mont Alto Film Project calls for extras

November 01, 2010

The Mont Alto Film Project needs extras from the local community on Sunday, Nov. 7, for "Two Days Back," an independent feature film being shot on the Penn State Mont Alto campus and in the surrounding area. The project needs adults, couples and families in the morning, from 8:30 a.m. to around 1 p.m., and adults to play search volunteers in the afternoon, from around 1 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Adults from the morning can double as extras in the afternoon.

The morning scenes involve adults and families picnicking. Extras are asked to come dressed for a Fall picnic and bring with them basic picnic items (food, blankets, etc.). The afternoon scenes involve emergency vehicles, police and search volunteers. Extras are asked to dress in appropriate clothes for searching the woods and to bring a flashlight with them, if possible.

Filming will take place on the Penn State Mont Alto campus near the Red No. 1 parking lot close to the soccer field. First Assistant Director Tressa Bellows will be coordinating extras. Extras can park in any legal parking space (avoid handicapped spaces).

"Two Days Back" is a low-budget, independent film that is being produced in cooperation with Penn State Mont Alto as part of a two-year practicum in filmmaking. The film stars professional actors, but the production crew is comprised of Penn State Mont Alto students from various disciplines.

Interested parties are welcome to show up unannounced on Sunday, Nov. 7, but the production would appreciate hearing from people who plan to participate in advance of the shooting date. If possible, interested persons should send an e-mail to Kevin Boon at or call Boon at 717-321-5683 by Friday, Nov. 5.
