Contrary to an unsubstantiated report in a local media outlet today, there was no jumper on the Fredericton train bridge this morning. It was an actor working as part of a film crew using the bridge in their production.
"We're making a film," said Kyle Forbes, one of the producers of the the piece, when asked what the group was doing.
Along with director Miguel Serrano and actors Jenna Knorr, Andreas Marquis and Alex Rioux, Forbes is working on File936, which according to its website www.file936.com, is about three friends in a small town who, "...find themselves thrown into the middle of a conflict that is full of corporate secrets and lies. Everything that they do just might decide the fate of an entire town."
Forbes and his colleagues are local university students, who came with the idea of making the feature-length film during, "a crazy late night discussion," said Serrano on the website. The group has been working on the production for a few years and have come up with a concept they describe as, "...a compelling story about power, control, and the way we so blindly accept the world around us: we seldom question that which has become the norm."
