West Point citizens asked to participate in documentary-style film project

An open casting call is being held Sunday for a documentary focusing on the city of West Point, and its connection to Kia Motors.

According to a press release from Fincannon & Associates Casting Company, the casting call is asking interested residents to be at The Depot at the West Point Visitors Center between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. ET.

“We are looking for folks that are proud of their hometown, from the South and who love to talk about it,” said casting director Mark Fincannon in a press release. “From teenagers to senior citizens, our goal is to paint a picture about what is great about living in the area of West Point. We are back in town to continue our search for the heart and soul of West Point.”

Fincannon & Associates Casting Company is a film company that has cast throughout the United States and in a dozen countries worldwide, according to its website.

Lizzy Gauntt with Fincannon & Associates said the company is looking for anyone that wants to talk about what they love about West Point.

“We are really looking for people that love their town, just normal citizens that live in West Point or work in West Point and live in the surrounding area,” Gauntt said.

The Greater Valley Area Chamber of Commerce’s Junior Ambassador Committee helped spread some holiday cheer earlier this week when it passed out Valentine’s Day cards at area nursing homes. The junior ambassador committee is made up of ninth graders through twelfth graders from area high schools. Carrie Royster, marketing and events manager for the chamber, said about 45 students participate in the junior ambassadors. Local elementary school students made the Valentine’s Day cards and the junior ambassador committee took them to the assisted living and nursing homes in the area. Valentine’s Day cards were taken to LaFayette Nursing Home, LaFayette Extended Care, G.H. Lanier Nursing Home, Diversicare, Sylvia Word Manor, Lakewood Senior Living and Valley Park Manor. “I think the importance is having our youth go into the nursing homes,” Royster said. “A lot of times our youth doesn’t get that experience, and the nursing home residents absolutely love having the kids come in and getting to communicate with them.”
