It's a family-friendly production from Home Theater Films

Want to see you name up in lights, or at the very least, get a part in a family-friendly film?

Then show up at the Taft Chamber of Commerce Saturday for an open casting call for a short film that will be shot in July in Taft.

Chamber Executive Director Kathy Orrin said the project is a short film entitled “Midland” and the story involves a young man in minor league baseball

The open casting call will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at the Taft Chamber of Commerce offices, 400 Kern Street.

If you can't make the casting call, there's still an opportunity to get involved.

Home Theater Films is part of a project by actor Corbin Bernson to produce family friendly films.

Bernsen, who directed and starred in 25 Hill, a movie partially shot in Taft, is the son of the late Jeanne Cooper.

She was a daytime television star who passed away a year ago. Several years before that, she was inducted into the Taft Union High School Hall of Fame.
