When I was at Ball State, about the most exciting thing that happened was when a group of anti-war students threatened to set a dog on fire to protest the Nixon administration's policies. They never intended to actually burn a dog, mind you; they just wanted the attention, which of course they got. Something like this would have really livened things up:
Ball State University officials were stunned to learn that an X-rated film involving students was shot more than two years ago in a distinguished mansion normally reserved for seminars.
"Vampire Diaries" director Christopher Gregory filmed his movie at the university-owned Kitselman Center, a short walk from Ball State's campus, after pitching the project as a horror movie. It was released on DVD Friday.
Gregory, a Muncie resident, said he didn't tell Ball State officials about the film's adult content because turning it into a pornographic movie was a last-minute decision.
Interesting, isn't it, that a porno movie wouldn't have been approved, but it was OK to shoot a horror movie there.
