This past week, our church had the pleasure of renting our facilities to the cast and crew of the Discovery Channel's Crime Documentary Series, "A Crime to Remember".  They were with us from Tuesday through to Saturday.  They filmed at the Lutheran Church on Grove Street, in the Village's Courthouse, and at a home on the corner of Rose and Roosevelt Streets.

The production company used the Church Parlor to house both the makeup and the wardrobe departments.  

They used the Parish Hall to feed the cast and crew, as well as, to house the back office production staff, i.e., casting, script revisions, editing, and logistics/transportation. 

The first day began on Tuesday at 5:30am, and filming ended on Saturday morning at 5:00am!  Our Trustees' representative, Gus Segredo, stayed with the production company to make sure that everything ran smoothly, i.e., electrical  fuses, bathroom supplies, and the opening and locking up of the facilities for a total of over 54 hours over four days. 

The production company had over 60 people using our church while the film set had close to 40.  They filmed what is to be the last episode of this season; the episode's title is still to be determined.
