Local Man Still Has Eye On Old SAHS As Movie Set
“You couldn’t ask for a better set. My film is set in an abandoned high school. They aren’t doing anything with it, and I know it’s costing the taxpayers money, so I went to them with my offer and the superintendent said no.”
He says he made a good offer.
“I was going to cover liability insurance. I was going to offer them an amount of money to be determined. I offered to get the students involved as production assistants. I offered to set up a film and media scholarship fund. I offered to cover every expense that they would incur. I was told that they were worried about the floodgates opening for more productions, and I say let the floodgates open. Why not rent the building out? It’s costing them money.”
