October 31, 2009 – Photographing Halloween, The Pillowman, Call for extras, and Free and Legal Downloads

Involving young adults with non-profits?  Don’t those crazy Pittsburghers know that youths must be marginalized and progressed stymied?

A five-year art program that students and faculty agree created a special energy in the halls of Titusville Middle School has come to an end, but the fruits of the endeavor - five bronze statues bearing the likeness of TMS students - are permanently a part of the school's landscape.

Allegheny College’s Playshop Theatre will open its 80th season with Martin McDonagh’s thriller The Pillowman in the Gladys Mullenix Black Theatre at the Vukovich Center for Communication Arts. The play will be performed Nov. 5-8, with productions at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday.

The Pillowman contains strong language, violence and situations that some may find unsettling. The play is recommended for mature audiences only.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $7.50 for non-Allegheny students, senior citizens and Allegheny employees. Although admission is free for Allegheny students with identification, they are asked to make reservations. For more information or to order tickets, contact the Playshop Theatre box office at (814) 332-3414.

Hundreds of extras are needed for the movie The Last Vampire on Earth. Interested people should meet at the Butler Institute of American Art, 524 Wick Ave., at 3 p.m. Monday, said casting director Linda Weaver.

Needed are college-age people, skateboarders, hippies, guitar player, rapper and random students. Extras don’t need to preregister and can just show up to participate. Call (330) 758-4417 for more information.

How to Photograph Halloween Costumes

Jim Kronmiller asks,  Why would a photographer teach other photographers?

The Keystone View Company was a major distributor of stereographic images, and was located in Meadville, Pennsylvania. From 1892 through 1963 Keystone produced and distributed both educational and comic/sentimental stereoviews, and stereoscopes. By 1905 it was the world's largest stereographic company.  I bring this up because goodwill is selling a collection of 256 of its images for about fifty cents per, at the om,ent,.
