Film students shooting scenes in Ottawa and Streator

Posted by wlpo on July 5, 2010

While it’s no Steven Spielberg or George Lucas, filmmakers will be in Ottawa and Streator later this week.

Two graduate students from Columbia College are filming scenes locally for a short film that’s part of their master’s thesis.  On July 8th, several streets in Streator will be filmed as backdrop shots in the movie with no actors in the picture.  The next two days, crews will shoot scenes in Ottawa including a car chase next Sunday that will affect traffic on Main Street between La Salle and Clinton Streets and Clinton between Main and Madison Streets.

The film is about a man who finds himself in a rural area and decides to pose as a celebrity.
