FilmDayton Shoots Series at CJ

For just two days this summer, the halls of Chaminade Julienne will be transformed into ‘Bombeck High School’ – and no, you didn’t miss news of another merger.

The temporary name change comes at the request of FilmDayton, a non-profit volunteer-based production company located downtown on East Fifth Street, which will be shooting scenes at the school building on the corner of Franklin and Ludlow Streets on Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 18-19, for its new web series, Freak Club.

The series, created by University of Dayton graduate Alexandra Grizinski and co-written by CJ alumna Nichol Simmons ’87, follows a group of high school friends and “social misfits” who form a paranormal society to explore their shared interest in the supernatural.
