Sleepy Hollow will be full of camera crews this week for some unusual projects.
First, today on the steps of the perhaps you noticed the bright lights of a some lights-camera-action going on. I stopped by to snoop and a suited man asked me, kindly, to delete the photo I had taken (from a distance) of the production crew. He told me they were filming an educational video for the Watch Tower organization, i.e. the Jehovah's Witnesses, and they didn't want to release any info on it until it was out.
Still, I'll sneak a photo in here and hope for the best.
Then, on Wednesday, we'll see more action at various hotspots around the village from the to the lighthouse. This is for a commercial for Jennie-O Turkey, the Hormel foods company who apparently wants to film people eating their packaged meats in our most picturesque and historic settings.
Any inconvenience you experience will be rewarded (if you eat packaged meat). Jennie-O is serving up free breakfast sandwiches to thank us for our hospitality on Saturday at 9 a.m. across from Village Hall.
From their "Village Appreciation Breakfast" press release:
As a “thank you” to the village for serving as the setting for its latest breakfast-focused television commercial, Jennie-O will give away 1,000 breakfast sandwiches made with JENNIE-O®turkey bacon and turkey sausage.
The free breakfast event starts at 9 am on Saturday, Aug. 11, 2012, and will be held at the municipal parking lot across from Village Hall, 28 Beekman Ave., Sleepy Hollow, N.Y. One thousand free sandwiches will be available first come, first served. There is a limit of one meal per person while supplies last.
