Downtown Will Become Movie Set Sunday

A portion of downtown will be closed off to traffic Sunday morning, May 16 while a production company from Benson films an episode of the web series The Carrier.  The filming, from 7 am to 11:30 am, will include a gunfight on the street. "It's a thriller, and there is gunplay," said Roger Franks of NilesCat Films.

The company will bring a seven or eight-member crew and four actors. They have put out a call for local extras, needing six to twelve volunteers.

The Carrier is a thriller produced directly for internet viewing.

Here's what NilesCat Films says about the series: "At a time when the right to decide and personal freedom are vanishing, a secret organization, simply known as The Network, holds the key to mankind’s future. Pursued by government officials, a single carrier keeps the package in transit in the hope that someday there will be a need once again for it’s contents and the world will change for the better."
