Pittsburgh-Filmed ‘Abduction’ Premieres Today

23 Sep

 

 

Today is the much-anticipated release of the movie, “Abduction.” Anticipated by whom, you ask? Well, Taylor Lautner fangirls (and boys) and Pittsburgh alike have been awaiting the release of this film.

The movie was filmed in Pittsburgh last summer and the story is also based here in Da’ Burgh as well. Shoot locations include Mt. Lebanon, PNC Park, and more.

I was an extra/background actor in the flick, and though I missed the VIP Fan Premiere/Sneak Peak Advance Viewing last week in Monaca, I will be seeing the movie this weekend to see if I can spot myself and/or any familiar locations!

So, if you are looking for something to do on this rainy Pittsburgh weekend, I suggest you go see Abduction — whether you are a member of Team Jacob or Steeler Nation, the scenery surely won’t disappoint! 😉

Most of you know this but I’ll tell “yinz” again, anyway.

Pittsburgh Foundation’s PITTSBURGH ON VIDEO : Glitzburgh is a Video Contributor!

10 Sep

The Pittsburgh Foundation recently developed a locally-centralized “community video site” featuring journalists and contributors in and around the Pittsburgh and Western Pennsylvania region. This fun and innovative website is called Pittsburgh on Video and was inspired by the likes of YouTube and Hulu.

The Pittsburgh Foundation is known for their good work in our community, so it’s no wonder that they wanted to do something like this to bring Pittsburghers together, allowing us to share our insights, perspectives, visions, and stories with one another. They partnered with a company called Miro to build Pittsburgh on Video so that it would remain LOCAL – something that YouTube and other sites like it could not guarantee – and that is what makes this site so special.

Glitzburgh blogger Ashley Boynes was asked to be one of the Pittsburgh on Video contributors and you can view all of the  “Glitzburgher’s” videos right here at:

Check back often, and, you can subscribe to these videos via email or RSS feed, too!

Current videos (as of 9/10/11) include: Abduction casting call, Social Media Day, Numbers Elementary author interview, and Mt. Lebanon Taylor Lautner fans.

And now, for your viewing pleasure …
