PBS looking for students to participate in documentary


Madison Ling, Campus Life Editor

Ocelots, prepare to see your name rolling in lights because PBS is now accepting applications for 3 students from ages 18 to 21 to feature in an upcoming world history documentary. Applications are currently open and will close soon, so students from all walks of life that have a unique artistic talent such as singing, songwriting and more are encouraged to apply. Once applications are collected, students will be brought in for a filmed interview to see if they are the best fit for the project.
“We are certain this opportunity will be exciting, inspirational, as well as educational for those involved. Also, because they will be on camera as part of the film I would imagine this will look nice on a resume as well.” States Executive Producer of Visionalist Entertainment Productions, Keith Famie.
Students are required to have an ethical record that is clear of issues with the law and be in decent academic standing to apply. In addition, they will need a passport to participate in this opportunity as filming will be conducted in Europe for 7 to 10 days during the summer. All travel expenses are covered and those casted will be compensated for their time. The documentary will go into production in Michigan once completed.
“Our goal is to provide young adults with a unique opportunity and to create a profound, touching documentary centered around world history.” Famie commented.
Students looking for a unique summer experience or the chance to be a part of a profound production should consider applying for a chance to be a finalist. The applications are due soon, so don’t hesitate. To fill out a form, please visit
