Film Production Students Request Community Support

As Huntington University continues production on its first feature film, Wayfaring Stranger, the Film Production Capstone production team is requesting help from the community.

“We have taken on a larger-than-life project for our first film since it is a period piece film set in the early ’70s,” said Dr. Lance Clark, dean of the arts, professor of digital media arts and producer for Wayfaring Stranger. “We would love to have local volunteer extras to be a part of this film.”

Extras will be on set for eight days, and lunch is provided. If you are interested, please contact the Casting Director via email at

The production team is also in need of the following clothing items:

  • 1960-1970s men’s and women’s clothing and shoes
  • Boys’ clothing sizes 10 and up (could be modern or vintage)
  • Well-worn work clothes, including old t-shirts (plain or patterned, no wording or logos), jeans and overalls, work boots and gloves, and trucker hats

Items can be a loan or a donation. If you can help with these production needs, please contact

Additionally, the Film Production Capstone team is in need of additional funds to support the production of Wayfaring Stranger.

“When you support Wayfaring Stranger,” said senior film production major and second assistant director Abdul Kamara, “you’re not just supporting a feature film: you’re supporting the future filmmakers. Filmmakers like myself who are begging to tell stories that matter and bring positive perspective into the world.”

Funds raised for this project are going directly to support students’ efforts to produce this film and make industry connections. To support Wayfaring Stranger and the students who are making this film a reality, visit
