Major Movie Being Shot Just Outside of Albany

If you've ever wanted to appear as an "extra" in a major movie, this could be your moment! Last week, GNA had the story of Paramount Films coming to town, and on short notice, looking for extras in and around MVP Arena.

While that particular shoot has wrapped, Paramount film crews will be back in New York again with another open casting call - for the same movie - this time, they'll be just outside of Albany, filming down in the Hudson Valley.

The project is called “Too Much for One Heart,” which is the name of a song from the musical “Miss Saigon.” The casting agency describes the project as a “horror/mystery film.” - Albany Times Union

Latest Viral TikTok Trend Takes Funny Look at Life in the Adirondacks

We recently came across a viral video that took a lighthearted and fun approach to "Life in the ADKS." It's been circulating for weeks and we think it's worth sharing!

Is life in the Adirondacks all that different from life in say, Albany, Schenectady, or Saratoga Springs? We say, "Yes!"

Even though most cities in the Capital Region are less than an hour away, anyone who's spent a decent amount of time in the North Country knows that certain conveniences that many might take for granted, don't exist throughout the 5,000 square miles of dense forest and high peaks that comprise the mighty ADKS.

So whether you're from Halfmoon or Hague; from Troy or Ticonderoga, you should be able to relate to a viral video that takes a humorous and poignant approach to "Life in the Adirondacks."

Here are a few of our favorites - and you can check out the full video below.
