Local filmmaker holds Downtown Fresno shoot

FRESNO, Calif.

A local filmmaker used a building in Downtown Fresno to film a scene for his upcoming movie.

Director Bill Weatherford and the cast of "Underclassmen" were hard at work. They have been filming scenes in Fresno since the beginning of July and most of the cast and crew were from the Central Valley.

"Underclassmen" is a movie about high school students who have a few choices after graduation. The main character avoids joining a gang and instead gets involved with the military after the attacks of 9-11.

The film will be entered into the Fresno and San Luis Obispo film festivals next year.
