(Binghamton, NY) – Looking to be part of a feature film? “Stationed at Home” is filming in Binghamton from January 30 to February 17 and is looking for actors to fill five main roles.
“Stationed at Home” is a film set in Binghamton, about a solitary taxi driver on a frigid graveyard shift, breathlessly awaiting a mysterious space sighting. As the hours count down, an offbeat ensemble of misfit passengers derails the drivers plans. In this poetic, hilarious and often absurd tale, these complete strangers discover unexpected unity and a newfound understanding of their place among the stars.
