Local actors and performers, as well as principal actors for bigger roles, are needed to populate a railroad station in North Judson for the closing sequence of a commercial to be shot there July 2 and 3.
Who's needed? The script calls for a number of children, ages 10 to 18; an older married couple; locomotive engineer and fireman; and more, according to a news release.
Lynchpin Pictures, a film and media production company from northeast Indiana, will begin production of a national commercial campaign that weekend.
In conjunction with the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum and Fort Wayne Railroad Historical Society, Lynchpin is turning North Judson’s railroad station into a film set with actors in period dress, vintage cars, an operating steam locomotive and more to re-create the 1940s.
“This is a unique opportunity to show the community how a well-run railroad and museum can be a great asset,” said Hoosier Valley President Jason Annen in a news release. “The town saved this railroad for historical and educational reasons and this is a very special way to showcase it.”
