FMU Hits the Streets of Downtown
(released 5/22/2006)

On Wednesday, May 17th, several film students from FMU were working on a PSA for voting.  The set location was the sidewalk on Orange Avenue in front of the convenience store and Gino's Pizza.

They enlisted the help of passersby for use as extras.  The method seemed a little work-intensive, but definitely fun and upbeat for both the crew and the downtown denizens.  This, coupled with the setting of the sun, seemed to make for a stressful shoot.

Working on the project were Producer Meg Hixson, Camera Operator and Writer Mark Williams, Editor and Actor Chad Baiby, and Director Carl Martin.
