They are looking for people ages 8 and up for school scenes and are asking for people to show up at 434 Park Avenue by 6:30 p.m.

“Looking for people of all types, ages 8 and older. If you fill out this form, we WILL use you and/or your child. There is no pay, but they will get credit in the film and on the IMDb,” the filmmakers said.



Love in Storytown, a  film being shot in Huntington, is looking for youngsters who want to be part of the movie. Those who want to participate are asked to show up Monday at Silas Wood Sixth Grade Center.

“Think Fall in TN. It’s still warm, but we love that country look. Plaids, denim, floral prints, fall colors, you get the idea,” the directions read. “No red, white or all-black looks. No logos. No artwork. Please bring backpacks! We can ABSOLUTELY use the Jansport logo (we have permission), so please feel free to bring them,” the directions say.

Adults accompanying the children may be invited to play the roles of parents or teachers. Participants are asked to show up no earlier than 10:30 a.m.

To register for the scenes.

The film’s director is Candice Cain, a native Long Islander who specializes in TV movies as well as writing, directing and producing stage plays. On Sunday, she addressed the rumors on social media that the film might be in violation of strike rules. “Our film received an interim agreement, and the film is in good standing with SAG-AFTRA. Please squash whatever rumors you may hear.”

Residents hoping to be background players in a movie being shot in Huntington waited patiently to get their shot Friday.

Filming for Love in Storytown was underway outside the building at 478 Park Ave., which previously housed the offices of former US Rep. Tom Suozzi and his successor, Rep. Nick LaLota.

The background hopefuls waited in a tent on the other side of Sunny Pond. Among those who turned up were Hector Gavilla, a former Suffolk County Legislative candidate, and June Margolin of the Facebook group Huntington Matters, all seeking to form part of the background portraying a Tennessee state fair.

    My daughter would’ve loved being a part! She is in musical theater and acting. Will there be any other scenes being filmed?
