Date: Wednesday, July 26, 2017
Time: 11:45 am until 12:15 – 12:30 pm
Location: Spring Gate in the Village in the village of Linglestown, Pa. (Map)
What you will do: You will not act per se or have to say a word. You will be supplied with a prop by the Gazette that will make you look like a journalist — it could be a reporter’s notebook and pen, a videocam, a microphone, a point-and-shoot digital camera or a tablet computer. The scene will have 3 or 4 people lined up across a stage. The edited version of the video will show journalists disappearing one by one to denote the lack of community reporters, sometimes called beat reporters, in Lower Paxton Township and Central Dauphin School District.
What to wear: Business casual outfit (request a call if you need more info)
How many are needed: 3 or 4
After the shoot, participants are invited to grab a bite to eat and drink at St. Thomas Roasters.
