     HAMMOND – Bike riders and original music are needed for a music video to be shot on the Tammany Trace Trailhead/Caboose on Koop Drive in Mandeville.
     Students involved in an upcoming Zoom Into Movie Making career workshop at Southeastern Louisiana University's St. Tammany campus will shoot the video June 18 and 19 from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. both days.
     The hands-on workshop offered June 17-20 will involve middle and high school age youth in film production and editing of the music video for use on the web and for broadcast on Access St. Tammany, the parish-operated television station.
     Bike riders are needed for two days of production June 18 and 19 at the Tammany Trace Trailhead. Up to six riders are needed for each day. Three high school age riders, male or female, are needed for both days. Bikes can range from speed bikes, to cruisers, twin bikes, stunt bikes and more.
     Local bands and musicians are also asked to submit a video or audio file of original music for possible use in the music video. Instrumentals or music with limited words that could be associated with riding on the Trace or being in nature will be accepted. Some lyrics may be altered or words added or used in dialogue with the music video, with permission of the songwriter.
     All volunteer extras and use of music will be credited on the video, which will be posted on YouTube and for broadcast on Access Tammany.
     The Tammany Trace offers a 28-mile asphalt recreation trail for scenic rides, complete with covered tunnel underpasses to highways and stretches of uninterrupted riding pleasure. This video will create an audio and visual representation of safety tips and how to use extreme caution to proceed through intersections.
     To be an extra or to submit original music, contact instructor Sharon Edwards at 985-285-2739 or email SharonEdwardsonline@gmail.com.
     There is only one opening left for Zoom into Movies but there are openings for Zoom into Photography, which is being offered concurrently with the movie making career workshop at 21454 Koop Drive in Mandeville.
