The masterminds behind this piece were two current students, Emmanuel Wilhoite and Shelby Temple. These two Redbirds used their love of filmmaking and created a spirited and goofy promotional trailer for the Homecoming celebration. The video was scripted and conceptualized by Wilhoite and Temple and starred current Illinois State students: Mitch Conti (young James), Carly Oros (young Jayne), Colette Kuk (Susie); Illinois State alumni Deb Lesser (alumna Jayne) and Bob Tomaski (alumus James); and future Redbird Nick Tomaski (Charlie). Some talented student extras were also on hand for the filming: Adam Rahn, Shelby Temple, and Emmanuel Wilhoite.
