A film crew that plans to start shooting a baseball movie in the Cedar Rapids area at the end of the month is looking for actors and crew. Steve Schott is a producer on “The Final Season,” which focuses on the Norway High School baseball team as it played for its last state championship before consolidation closed the school. Schott says several speaking parts still need to be filled along with a variety of crew members.
Schott says the position of greensman needs to be filled — someone who would handle all of the plants, putting up potted trees to hide things, digging trenches for cables and replacing the grass, putting in hedges, flowers and anything else like that. Another slot that needs to be filled is called a grip. Grips move lights, help run camera equipment, put up flags — they “grip” things.
Schott says they’re looking for people with experience, not just people who’d like to learn the trades. He says several other jobs are open too, like boom operators, cable pullers and camera assistants.
Other openings are in the prop department, makeup and electrical workers. Actors are needed in a variety of roles — from players, coaches and parents to school officials and umpires. Filming is to being May 30th and run into July. For more information, surf to “www.finalseason.com”.
