Hundreds of Michiana extras participate in film


An Oscar-nominated director has chosen many Michiana areas for his newest film and many locals get to play a part!

Sunday the scenes in director John Hancock's film "Swan Song" involved a stage production of "Alice In Wonderland" and hundreds of extras got to sit in the crowd and watch.

All have varying acting skills and experience, but they say it's exciting to be a part of a movie in their own community.

"This is definitely my first actual "extras" performance so it's a good time," says Tyler Paluzzi.

"It's not all glory, it's hard work, but it's worth it and I enjoy it," says Patrick Trimboli.

Producers say they hope to wrap up the Michiana scenes by early this week.
