Have You Ever Wanted to Be in a Movie?
Owatonna has been the city of choice for a few movies to be filmed in. Back in 1995 parts of the movie 'Angus' were filmed right at Owatonna High School. This was before my time in Owatonna, so I was not able to be a part of the whole experience. More recently was the movie 'Zombies: The Movie' and I was able to see some of the extras all decked out in their zombie gear shooting different scenes.
Now, there is another movie being filmed, partially in Owatonna, and they are looking for extras. The name of the film is 'Brother's Keeper' and it's based on a book of the same name by Chad Mitchell. It's a story about the Abilene Eagles football team in Abilene, TX, and the story sounds very uplifting.
The production company is looking for extras for the movie, both for today, as well as needing several for next week, on Wednesday, June 6th. They will provide food and beverages for all extras, and they are looking for a diverse crowd, so anyone is encouraged to apply to be an extra. If you are interested in applying to be an extra, you can go here. For more information about the movie, check this out.
