The ‘Summit' of cinema: NORTH ADAMS -- A crew of 28 in the process of filming the slasher movie "Summit" will come to Northern Berkshire next week.
They're filming in a West Shaft Road house owned by David Willette, who initially made contact with the group through a Craigslist ad.
Funding for the movie was done in a way "pretty groundbreaking in and of itself," says director Christina Raia, and the Transcript will examine both this and why the county was chosen as the site for the movie. The film will star Lauren Ashleigh, Rob Ceriello, Emma Barrett, Ricardo Manigat and Ryan Kramer.

Williams comes together over bombing: WILLIAMSTOWN -- Despite the frigid cold and light snow Monday night, over 40 people participated in a candlelight vigil at Williams College, in honor of students who died in the bombing of a Syrian university. The vigil was organized by freshman Sumaya Awad.
"Students were taking their first round of final exams," she told the crowd, arranged in a circle in front of Chapin Hall. "It was a government school, and yet, it was the government that bombed the school that day."
Two rounds of bombs fell on Allepo University on Jan. 15, killing 82 students and injuring over 200.
