Missouri S&T’s Police Department, in conjunction with the S&T marketing and communications department, will film an instructional video on the S&T campus on three Sundays during November and December. The video is designed to teach members of the university community how to survive an attack by armed individuals. Extras are needed to play students. For consideration as an extra, please complete an online form by Thursday, Nov. 10.

The first of three filming sessions is planned for 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 13, in the Havener Center. Filming will also occur at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 4, in the Engineering Management Building and at 2 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11, inside and on the north side of the Engineering Management Building.

The video will follow a gunman through campus buildings, giving viewers instructions on what to do if they encounter this situation. It is designed to be a realistic depiction of an active shooter event. Students, faculty, staff and two professional actors will be acting in the role of victims. Signage on building entrances and around campus will clearly indicate that filming for a simulated, controlled event is taking place. Missouri S&T Police officers will be stationed near the filming locations.
