Auburn School is excited to announce that our school will be a setting in an upcoming full-length feature film "A Place Called Home,” written and directed by Kiel Thorlton, an alumnus of Auburn School and the Logan County school system! The film company is seeking child extras for filming at Auburn School on June 26.  If you are interested in being an extra in the film, here are the qualifications:

1. Children entering 3rd-6th grade next year. We are currently looking for between 65 and 85 children.

**Be available ALL DAY June 26
**A legal guardian MUST be present at the time of filming for a child to participate.
**DO NOT wear anything blue (denim blue jeans are okay, but nothing else).
**DO NOT wear anything with large screen print logos or recognizable characters.
**Bring a change of clothes in case of a wardrobe issue.
**Dress as if you were going to school for the day—nothing fancy, please.

The film itself is set for a PG-13 rating with a tentative theatrical release in early 2021. This film is an independent production and not a large Hollywood film. It’s a redemptive piece that showcases real life in Kentucky and shows the beauty of Logan County. The film has a strong message about family, love, and faith. However, it does showcase real life. In the final production there are adult themes explored such as death, loss, and violence; in addition, there is language in the film (thus the PG-13 rating).

NO language or themes are expressed anywhere near Auburn Elementary School and no child of any kind would hear anything. The director is a father of young children and would in no way want to express thoughts or ideas to children that he would not express to his own.
