Dec. 27, 2017 — When Children's Repertory of Oregon Workshops (CROW) Artistic Director Melanie Heard got word that a commercial being filmed locally needed actors, she leapt at the chance to provide camera experience to her students. CROW youth participated as background actors on Dec. 8. "It provided our local kids with an experience like no other," Heard said. "It's great to see our kids learning about different genres, and I was thrilled to say 'Yes!' when the production company asked us to participate. What a great experience for our kids to be on a set, and to learn about the logistics of shooting a real commercial!" CROW is open to all area youth. For more information, visit crowkids.com.
