Gambier is Basically the New Hollywood

This morning, the independent film Old Fashioned, produced by Skoche Films and written and directed by Rik Swartzwelder, shot several brief scenes in the Peirce/Ransom Lawn and Sam Mather/Ascension areas. About a dozen Kenyon students served as extras, walking up and down Middle Path and in and out of buildings. The film crew was surprised that more people did not show up, but that’s what you get for filming at 9 a.m. on the first day of Reading Days.

The Indian Summer weather also caused a few hiccups; crew members scrambled to get the short-sleeved extras into whatever jackets and scarves were available, as the film is set in late autumn. A producer was also positioned on top of a box so that she could throw leaves into the shot from off camera. If this were Pixar, they’d have just CGI-ed them.

Old Fashioned is, according to its Facebook page, about “a former frat boy and a free-spirited woman [who] together attempt the impossible: an ‘old-fashioned’ courtship in contemporary America,” and is tentatively scheduled for release in Fall 2012. More details, including additional photographs, more information about Old Fashioned and an interview with the lead actress will appear in next week’s issue of the Collegian.
