How to participate
The scene will take place Saturday, Jan. 17, noon to 3 p.m. in front of Meyer Library. Participants are asked to wear an article of clothing — such as a shirt, jacket or hat — that can be removed for different takes to give the appearance of different people in the crowd.
Those planning to attend should refrain from wearing clothing with large logos or words on it. Cookies and coffee will be served.
About the short film
Producer Graham Haerther said the short film is a futuristic thriller where a new mode of transportation drastically improves travel times but comes with intense controversy. The mock protest being filmed Saturday will appear to occur outside of the questionable technology company at the heart of the story.
Other principle students working on the film include Brian Schwabauer (director), Jordan Ousley (director of photography), Nate Kuneman (assistant director) and Zach Eastin (VFX supervisor).
