Heroic Age Studios has scheduled a “carpentry day” on Saturday, February 25. The purpose is to gather lumber from what is left on The Showdown (Sand Prairie) set in Pekin. Central Illinois Film Commission members Jim Conover and Tim Lynn will be supervising the crew.
Unfortunately, over the years the set has been vandalized and damaged by flooding. However, there is still an abundance of lumber that is salvageable from the few building frames still standing and what was washed back into the timber by floods. With your help, the legacy of Jim Conover’s film will live on through the new movie sets being built at Heroic Age Studios.
We are asking for all volunteers to meet us:
Casey’s General Store
Hopedale, IL 61747
We have 3 trucks available for hauling the lumber. We also encourage carpooling – and if available, volunteers should bring their own tools (hammers, pry bars, saws, saw horses, ladders). It is best if the volunteers have carpentry experience. We will brief the crew at Caseys, then escort them to the site.
It is our goal to be loaded up by sundown – and have the lumber hauled to the Mt. Zion studio. We will provide food and beverages on site, as well as at the studio in Mt. Zion that evening.
If you are available on February 25 to help (or wish to donate food/beverages for the crew), please contact Laura Richter at email@example.com, (217) 899-5676, or join our “Heroic Age Volunteers” group page on FaceBook.
Another year has come for our Annual Central IL Film Commission RED CARPET PARTY
