AUDITION CALL: JC Films Coming to Harrison Co. to Make Movie - "Zombie High School"

By Connect Clarksburg Staff | February 03, 2019
On the heels of “Megan’s Christmas Miracle” and “A Promise to Astrid,” JC Films is coming back to Bridgeport and Harrison County to make two feature-length films with parts for kids, teens and young adults.
Starting this month, JC Films President Jason Campbell is hosting workshops for young people interested in auditioning for those movies. 
Yet unnamed and in the preliminary stages of development is a “Little Rascals-type” film which will feature younger children. The other, “Zombie High School,” is in more advanced stages. A passion project of Campbell’s, the movie bears a message about bullying and the adverse, sometimes deadly, effects. Around 50 area high school/college-age individuals will be cast. Campbell has met with Harrison County Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Manchin about the making of the movie and the overall project, which will include the signing of anti-bullying pledges in area schools.
“He gave me his full blessing on the film,” Campbell said. “This is a passion project of mine. I’ve done some research and we don’t do well here in West Virginia with bullying. We rank pretty low and the governor recently made a statement about finding creative ways to curb this issue.”
Set up in similar fashion to the 1985 comedy/drama “The Breakfast Club,” the movie will feature high school students of all backgrounds and walks of life. The film will star actor Dean Cain, a JC Films regular.
