Movie mayhem invades K-College

KALAMAZOO -- Inside the cramped interior of a 1980s Oldsmobile Cutlass Cruiser station wagon -- crammed with cords, microphones and other hardware -- the film slate's digital numbers tumbled downward until the assistant director called out the one word that perhaps most personifies moviemaking.

``Action!,'' he said.

Slowly, the Cutlass made its way up Academy Street in the heart of Kalamazoo College's stately campus, trailing a production car where producers of ``Cherry'' -- an independent film being shot here -- watched a monitor that showed the shots being filmed inside the station wagon by means of a wireless feed.
