Film Crew Wraps Up Shoot in Salina

Jeff Garretson - January 9, 2014 11:23 am

A community potluck dinner will be the reward at the finish line for a group of actors and film crew from Chicago working in Salina this week.

Executive Director at the Salina Art Center Bill North, stopped into the KSAL Morning News on Thursday with a look at a short film that is under production, “It deals with a young man who is working through his parent’s divorce,” he said.

The film entitled “Somewhere in the Midwest” is the brainchild of director Dustin Whitehead.

North tells KSAL News that the Chicago based filmmaker grew up in Florida and attended DePaul University, where he met his Kansas connection – wife Sadie who grew up in Assaria.

Fast Forward

The crew is working in and around the area and will celebrate at the Salina Art Center on Saturday.

North says everyone is welcome, “Bring a dish to share and we’ll provide tableware and beverages,” he said. “Dustin will speak and some of the actors and crew will be there. And there will be a slide show presentation of production stills from the filming.”

The Community Potluck will be at the Art Center Warehouse, 149 4th Street, Saturday, January 11th from 6pm until 9pm.
