Comedy set in the ’80s being shot at Doyle Field

By Dan Magazu

LEOMINSTER — An independent movie is being filmed at Doyle Field in Leominster, and the producer is looking for local residents to be in it.

“We want to pack the football stands on Monday,” producer Andrea Ajemian said Wednesday during a break from filming at Doyle Field. “We are shooting the big football scene in the movie and will be getting a lot of close-ups of the crowd.”

“We Got the Beat” is set in the early 1980s and tells the story of a top- recruited high school quarterback who quits football to start the first-ever boy band, Ajemian said.

“It’s a comedy starring Robert Hoffman and Michael Copon,” Ajemian said. “We’ve been shooting for about two-and-a-half weeks and we wrap up on Aug. 15.”

Music producer Kaz Gamble came up with the songs for the fictional boy band dubbed A New Condition.

Can anyone find early 80’s uniforms??!

Yes, it’s very fun making a film set in the 1980’s, but it’s also very difficult. For instance, gone are the days where I can send out my Director of Photography and a couple of P.A.s to shoot an actor riding his bike down the street. Now I have to get the street closed off, have police detail, and find 70/80’s cars to line the streets. Ugh. Thank God I have great people on my team to make these things happen. Here’s the biggest problem right now – cheerleading and football uniforms from the early 80’s to become the Worcester High uniforms. We’d like them to be blue and yellow, but we are open to other colors providing the styles are right. We cannot find them anywhere. This week we have to make a final decision on the mascot (example: The Worcester High Rockets, The Worcester High Grinders) I’m pretty sure that the Art Dept. and Jon have decided, but if we find uniforms that say “Warriors” on them and we can have them for free, we’ll be the Worcester High Warriors. A challenge to you – we’ll give a special thanks credit at the end of the film to anyone who can find early 80’s uniforms for us that work for Worcester High. Any thoughts?
